POWER TRAIN

5/25/2016 - PANAMA CITY, FL
2010 VOLKSWAGEN 2.0 TURBO DSG FAULT. THE VEHICLE HAS BEGUN EXHIBITING DANGEROUS RANDOM/UNINTENTIONAL SHIFTING INTO MUCH LOWER GEARS, OR POSSIBLY EVEN NEUTRAL AT VARIOUS SPEEDS UNDER LIGHT OR NO THROTTLE INPUT ON TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS THUS FAR. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED THE VEHICLE WAS TRAVELING ABOUT 25MPH, AND THE DSG TRANSAXLE DOWNSHIFTED/SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL FOR NO APPARENT REASON, ENGINE REVVING TO 4-5 THOUSAND RPM. THIS HAPPENED ROUGHLY FOUR TIMES BEFORE IT RESUMED NORMAL OPERATION THE SECOND TIME IT HAPPENED WAS YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, ON THE HIGHWAY WITH SPEED CONTROL SET AT 58MPH. VEHICLE SHIFTED ALL BY ITSELF WITHOUT REASON, AGAIN REVVING TO 4-5 THOUSAND. THIS TIME IT HAPPENED TWICE BEFORE RETURNING TO NORMAL OPERATION. ADDITIONALLY, ONE MORNING I ACCELERATED FROM A STOP WITH COLD ENGINE/TRANSAXLE IN DRIVE, AND THE TRANSAXLE WOULD NOT UPSHIFT FROM LOW GEAR FOR ABOUT 3-4 SECONDS. NOT SURE IF THIS IS RELATED, BUT I SUSPECT IT MAY BE. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED, THE ABS/ESP LIGHT FLASHED AND REMAINED ON, AND I TOOK IT IN TO THE DEALER EXPLAINING THE PROBLEM, AND THEY SAID MY REAR WHEEL SPEED SENSOR WAS FAILING. THIS IS THE ONLY INDICATOR OF ANY FAULT THAT I CAN TELL. WHEN THE CAR EXHIBITS THIS FAULT, I DO NOT NOTICE ANY FLASHING GEAR INDICATORS OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, EVERYTHING SEEMS NORMAL, EXCEPT THE ENGINE REVS HIGH ALL BY ITSELF. I DO NOT HAVE ANY PHOTOS OR VIDEO EVIDENCE OF THE FAULT AS OF YET AS IT'S VERY UNPREDICTABLE AND INTERMITTENT, BUT I WILL ATTEMPT TO CAPTURE THE PROBLEM IF I CAN IN THE FUTURE.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/24/2016 - HOCKESSIN, DE
I DROVE TO WORK LISTENING TO THE RADIO. UPON RETURNING TO MY CAR AFTER WORK TO MAKE MY COMMUTE HOME THE RADIO WOULD NOT TURN ON. I HAVE REVIEWED VARIOUS ONLINE FORUMS AND DISCOVERED THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE REVISION OF THIS RADIO FOR THE 2010 MODEL YEAR. THIS MODEL HAS INTEGRATED HANDS FREE BLUETOOTH WHICH ALSO DOES NOT WORK AND IS A SAFETY ISSUE FOR HANDS FREE CALLING REQUIRED IN MY STATE. ALSO, THIS WILL CAUSE A DRAIN ON THE BATTERY WHICH COULD RESULT IN NOT BEING ABLE TO START THE VEHICLE AFTER SITTING TOO LONG.

ENGINE

5/24/2016 - SHELBINA, MO
CAR KEPT STALLING AFTER TAKE OFF WHEN YOU ACCELERATED. WHEN TAKING IT TO THE REPAIR SHOP IT WOULD NOT START AND HAD TO BE TOWED THERE. WHEN THEY GOT IT THEY DISCOVERED ALL BUT 1 QUART OF THE OIL IN THE ENGINE WAS GONE. THEY DETERMINED THAT THIS MALFUNCTION DAMAGED THE ENGINE AND THE ENGINE WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED. HAVE THE OIL CHANGED EVERY 3-5000 MILES AND IT WASN'T DUE FOR AN OIL CHANGE FOR ANOTHER 1000 MILES OR SO. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS HAPPENED AND VOLKSWAGEN WON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. ALL OF THIS TOOK PLACE IN THE CITY. WE WERE TO AFRAID TO TAKE IT OUT ON THE HIGHWAY. CAR HAS 109000 MILES ON IT AND HAS BEEN A LEMON FROM DAY 1. THIS WAS JUST THE ICING THAT TOPPED THE CAKE.
