Summary of Complaint

CAR WAS SHUT OFF, ON A SLIGHT INCLINE, NEGLECTING TO PUT THE GEAR SELECTOR IN PARK,BY USING THE START/STOP BUTTON. DRIVER BEGAN TO EXIT THE CAR AND NOTED IT WAS ROLLING FORWARD. DRIVER IMMEDIATELY PUT FOOT ON BRAKE PEDAL AND NOTED THE CAR WAS NOT IN PARK AND MOVED GEAR SELECTOR WHICH RESULTED IN NO FURTHER MOTION OF VEHICLE, CHECKING IT AGAIN THIS MORNING FOR CONFIRMATION, I FOUND THE PROBLEM REMAINS. NO MATTER WHAT GEAR IT IS SHUT DOWN IN ,OTHER THAN PARK, THE VEHICLE ROLLS FREELY. I HAD THOUGHT IT HAPPENED ONLY IF SHUT DOWN IN NEUTRAL, BUT IT IS ALL OTHER THAN PARK. THE PROBLEM WAS FIRST REALIZED IN A PARKING LOT, AND REPEATED THIS A FEW MINUTES AGO IN MY DRIVEWAY. I HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT THE CAUSE MAY BE AND I REALIZE THAT THE GEAR SHIFT LEVER SHOULD BE PLACED IN PARK BEFORE SHUTTING THE CAR OFF. I DO THINK THOUGH ,THAT IT MAY BE BECAUSE OF THE START/STOP BUTTON. I THINK THAT WITH A KEY START THIS MAY NOT OCCUR. I ALSO THINK THOUGH, THAT THERE SHOULD BE SOMETHING DONE TO PREVENT ITS HAPPENING WHEN THE LEVER IS NOT PUT INTO PARK BEFORE SHUTOFF. A KEY CONTROLLED START/STOP MIGHT'VE PREVENTED THIS. (??)

IT DOESN'T SEEM TO MATTER YOUR SPEED, IT WILL JUST STALL AND THIS CAN BE INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS. ORIGINALLY HAPPENED IN 2017 AND TOOK TO THE VW DEALERSHIP BUT THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG.

Summary of Complaint

RANDOMLY, WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A FULL STOP, THE CAR WILL MOVE A COUPLE OF FEET THEN LOSE ALL ACCELERATION POWER. STEPPING HARDER ON THE GAS PEDAL DOES NOT WORK. THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE CAR TO ACCELERATE IS TO ENTIRELY DISENGAGE AND RE-ENGAGE THE GAS PEDAL. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME, NO LIGHTS OR WARNINGS COME ON AND NOTHING SHOWS UP WHEN THE REPAIR PEOPLE HOOK IT UP TO A COMPUTER. THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY FACTOR AS IT USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN TURNING LEFT (DOES NOT HAPPEN WHEN TURNING TO THE RIGHT. USUALLY, WHEN TURNING LEFT, A PERSON HAS TRAFFIC COMING AT THEM FROM THE RIGHT. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL THINGS SUCH AS EASING ON THE ACCELERATOR, STEPPING QUICKER ON THE ACCELERATOR, EASING THEN STEPPING QUICKER, NOTHING SEEMS TO MATTER IT STILL JUST LOSES ALL PROPULSION AT RANDOM TIME BUT ONLY WHEN STARTING FROM A FULL STOP. THIS HAPPENS GENERALLY ON THE CITY STREETS AND ALWAYS FROM A FULL STOP. THIS BEGAN WHEN I GOT THE CAR (NEW, ONLY 27 MILES ON IT)

VIN: WVGWV7AX8HK****

Summary of Complaint

MY 2017 VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN HAS 19,000 MILES ON IT. I JUST BOUGHT IT FROM A HONDA DEALERSHIP (SINGLE OWNER, LEASED) BODY IS IN LIKE NEW SHAPE. THE CAR HAS STALLED ON WHILE DRIVING 6 TIMES TOTAL, ON 3 DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, WHILE DRIVING. THE ENGINE JUST SHUT OFF WITHOUT WARNING (STALLED OUT) WHILE THE CAR WAS MOVING OVER 40MPH AND AN EPC LIGHT CAME ON. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, AND LEFT MY FAMILY IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION ON THE HIGHWAY. A CAR ENGINE SHOULD NEVER SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING AND NOW HAS ME FEELING VERY UNSAFE WHEN DRIVING IT. IT HAS BEEN IN AND OUT OF THE LOCAL VW DEALERSHIP FOR 3 WEEKS. THIS CAR IS ONLY A YEAR OLD AND HAS LESS THAN 20,000 MILES ON IT. IT SHOULD NOT BE STALLING OUT WITHOUT WARNING AND LEAVING MY FAMILY IN SEVERELY DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. THERE IS NO INDICATION BEFORE HAND THAT THE CAR IS GOING TO STALL. AFTER IT STALLS OUT IT CAN TAKE UP TO 5 MINUTES TO START AGAIN. HOLDING THE START BUTTON (WHILE PUTTING THE CAR IN NEUTRAL BECAUSE IT STALLED OUT WHILE DRIVING) TO HOPEFULLY GET IT TO START AGAIN ON A DANGEROUS HIGHWAY IN MOTION IN TRAFFIC WITH NOTHING BUT A PRAYER TO HELP US. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I WOULD RATHER HAVE MY FAMILY SAFE AND MY CAR ENGINE DESTROY ITSELF, RATHER THAN THE CURRENT PROCESS OF MY CAR ENGINE "SHUTTING ITSELF DOWN WITHOUT WARNING TO SAVE ITSELF" WHILE LEAVING MY FAMILY IN DANGEROUSLY UNSAFE SITUATIONS WHILE DRIVING WITH A CAR THAT TURNS ITSELF OFF AS IT PLEASES POTENTIALLY CREATING A SITUATION IN WHICH MY FAMILY COULD BE INJURED OR WORSE (AS IT SHUTS ITSELF DOWN WITH A MIND OF ITS OWN WHEN IT THINKS THERE IS A PROBLEM). THIS CAR IS NEW AND HAS BEEN AT THE DEALERSHIP LONGER THAN IN MY DRIVEWAY. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE LETTING MY FAMILY DRIVE IT. I LOST CONFIDENCE IN THIS CAR AND HAVE GREAT DOUBT IN ITS FUTURE AFFORDABILITY AND SAFETY, RELIABILITY. I AM VERY, VERY CONCERNED.

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE ON FEBRUARY 3RD, 2017. FOR SEVEN MONTHS I'VE EXPERIENCED ESCALATING HEALTH ISSUES SUCH AS: 'MODERATE HEADACHES 'MODERATE TO SEVERE SINUS AND EAR PRESSURE/PAIN 'LUNG/THROAT IRRITATION 'LIGHT-HEADINESS 'BALANCE ISSUES 'NAUSEA 'MODERATE TO SEVERE VERTIGO 'CONFUSION 'MEMORY ISSUES 'AND MOST RECENTLY MUSCLE/LIMB TREMORS/TWITCHING THESE SYMPTOMS INTENSIFY WHEN USING THE CAR'S HVAC UNIT (HEATER/AC). OR WHEN SITTING IN THE CAR WITH THE WINDOWS UP FOR MORE THAN 15-20 MINUTES (WITH HVAC TURNED-OFF). AFTER UNSUCCESSFULLY ATTEMPTING TO REMEDY THE SITUATION MYSELF BY BUYING AND INSTALLING A NEW 'ACTIVATED CARBON' CABIN FILTER AND PUTTING BOWLS OF BAKING SODA UNDER MY SEATS (YES, THAT'S HOW DESPERATE I WAS) I OFFICIALLY CONTACTED THE DEALER WHERE I ORIGINALLY PURCHASED THE CAR FROM. THE DEALER PERFORMED A SERVICE CALLED 'AIR CONDITIONING DEODORIZING.' UNFORTUNATELY, FOR ME THE SERVICE MADE MY SYMPTOMS MUCH WORSE! IN ADDITION TO THE HEADACHES AND SINUS ISSUES, THE SERVICE CAUSED THE VERTIGO, CONFUSION, MEMORY, AND TREMORS. EVENTUALLY, I WAS REFERRED TO VW'S 'CUSTOMER CARE.' AFTER ONE CALL AND A FEW DAYS OF 'RESEARCHING' VW CONCLUDED THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE AND WILL NOT TRY TO REMEDY THE SITUATION. AND NOW I'M STUCK WITH A CAR THAT IS LITERALLY MAKING ME SICK. VERY STRANGE THAT I DO NOT HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS WHEN SITTING IN OTHER NEW CARS. IN CONCLUSION, IF YOU HAVE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITIES OR HAVE VERY YOUNG CHILDREN WHO ARE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE EFFECTS OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOCS), DON'T BUY THIS CAR. SAVE YOURSELF AND THOSE YOU LOVE FROM THE HASSLE OF HEALTH ISSUES, DOCTOR'S VISITS AND DEALING WITH A COMPANY WHO SIMPLY, DOES NOT CARE.
