FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

8/1/2017 - BRIGHTON, MI
LATERAL SPACING BETWEEN ACCELERATOR AND BRAKE PEDAL TOO NARROW. THIS SITUATION CAUSES THE DRIVER TO PUSH THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL WHEN REQUIRING BRAKING. ON AT LEAST ONE OCCASION THIS CAUSED ME TO IMPACT A STATIONARY VEHICLE DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME. THIS IS A DANGEROUS CONDITION THAT IS AGGREVATED WHEN LARGER FOOTWEAR IS WORN, THIS CONDITION SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, AS IT AN UNACCEPTABLE PRESENTS A SAFETY RISK

ENGINE

7/31/2017 - PHILADELPHIA, PA
DRIVING ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAY FOR GREATER THAN 30 MINUTES, THERE WAS ONSET OF STRONG RAIN CONDITIONS AT ABOUT 30 MINUTES OF DRIVING TIME -- THE EPC LIGHT CAME ON AND THE ABILITY TO ACCELERATE WAS LOST. SYMPTOMS OF DOWNSHIFTING WERE NOTED JUST PRIOR TO ONSET OF ISSUE. DEPRESSING THE ACCELERATOR RESULTED IN RPM INCREASE WITH NO ACCELERATION IN RELATIVELY FAST TRAFFIC (>50MPH). WAS ABLE TO PULL OFF SAFELY AND SHUT VEHICLE OFF. VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION IN HIGH SPEED/STRONG RAIN CONDITIONS. EPC LIGHT TURNED OFF AFTER SHUTOFF AND RE-START, AND I ASSUMED A SLIP ON WET SURFACE. RESTARTED AND ATTEMPTED TO REJOIN TRAFFIC. TRAVELED LESS THAN 50 FEET AND EPC LIGHT RE-LIT WITH NO SLIP, FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY BY LIGHTING OF THE 'CHECK ENGINE' LIGHT. SAME LACK OF ACCELERATION AND INCREASED RPM WITH DEPRESSING THROTTLE PEDAL WAS NOTED. TURNED OFF ENGINE ON SHOULDER AGAIN AND RESTARTED AFTER FIVE MINUTE PERIOD IN ATTEMPT TO GET HOME AND WAS ABLE TO VERY CAREFULLY/SLOWLY MERGE BACK INTO TRAFFIC WITH CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND EPC LIGHT LIT FOR ENTIRETY OF TRIP HOME (>50 MILES). VEHICLE DROVE FOR ADDITIONAL APPROXIMATELY 50 MILES WITHOUT SYMPTOMS ONSET. VEHICLE CURRENTLY HAS APPROXIMATELY 50K MILES AND IS DRIVEN ONCE EVERY WEEK OR TWO WEEKS. ALL SERVICE IS PERFORMED REGULARLY. I RESEARCHED THIS SYMPTOM SET ONLINE, ONLY TO FIND HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS SIMILAR TO MINE ACROSS THE SPECTRUM OF VW MODELS INDICATING NO PRECISE DIAGNOSIS RELATIVE TO THESE SYMPTOMS COINCIDING WITH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF REPAIRS IN ATTEMPT TO RECONCILE. I DO NOT CARE TO SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ATTEMPTING TO REPAIR AN ISSUE THAT CANNOT BE IDENTIFIED USING A 'TRIAL AND ERROR' METHOD ON A VEHICLE THAT KBB VALUES AT LESS THAN 5K. BASED ON MY LIMITED RESEARCH, THIS VERY DANGEROUS ISSUE SHOULD BE SOME SORT OF RECALL. I HAVE RESEARCHED RECALLS ON MY PARTICULAR VEHICLE AND HAVE NOTED NOTHING RELATIVE.

POWER TRAIN

7/8/2017 - CHEYENNE, WY
WHEN STARTING FROM A STOP THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS INTO NEUTRAL AND THE CAR ROLLS UNPOWERED TO A STOP. IF THE ENGINE IS TURNED OFF AND TRANSMISSION IS SHIFTED TO "PARK" TO RESTART THE ENGINE IT IS THEN IMPOSSIBLE TO SHIFT THE TRANSMISSION OUT OF "PARK" INTO NEUTRAL OR ANY OTHER GEAR. WHENEVER THIS IS HAPPENING VARIOUS WARNING LIGHTS APPEAR ILLUMINATED ON THE WARNING PANEL-EG. "LOW WASHER FLUID" AND "TRACTION CONTROL WARNING." IN TRAFFIC THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND TO GET TO AN "OUTSIDE LANE" MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE. TO LOSE POWER WHEN STARTING FROM A STOP SIGN AND HAVING TO COAST TO A STOP IN THE LANE ONE HAS JUST ENTERED IS VERY DANGEROUS. TWICE WHEN TURNING LEFT WITH A LEFT-TURN GREEN ARROW THE TRANSMISSION FAILED AND I ROLLED TO A STOP, SHIFTED TO "PARK" TO RESTART THE ENGINE ONLY TO HAVE THE TRANSMISSION "LOCK-UP" IN "PARK" WITH ME UNABLE TO PHYSICALLY GET THE SELECTOR LEVER INTO "DRIVE." THIS CAR HAS BEEN SERVICED AT VW EVERY 10,000 MILES SINCE NEW AND AT 104,000 MILES I AM TOLD IT MAY NEED A NEW $7,000.00 TRANSMISSION. ON-LINE I SEE THAT THE "DSG TRANSMISSION " HAS BEEN RECALLED TWICE FROM 2006 TO 2016 FOR "SLIPPING INTO NEUTRAL." HOWEVER, VW CLAIMS THERE ARE NO RECALLS FOR MY VEHICLE AND WHEN I DO A NTSC VIN SEARCH I FIND NO SUCH PROBLEM LISTED. MY NEAREST VW SERVICE DEPARTMENT IS 45 MILES AWAY VIA INTERSTATE AND CITY DRIVING AND I AM AFRAID TO ATTEMPT DRIVING THERE FOR A DIAGNOSIS. LOCAL TRANSMISSION SHOPS ARE UNABLE TO SERVICE OR EVEN DIAGNOSE OR MEASURE THE FLUID LEVEL IN THE VW PROPRIETARY SEALED-UNIT.
