5/3/2014 - LEMON GROVE, CA
AFTER A NEW ISSUE HAPPENED AGAIN IN THE SAME GENERAL AREA OF THE ISSUE WITH MY CAR THAT HAD BEEN HAPPENING PRETTY MUCH SINCE PURCHASING THE CAR. THE NOISE THAT HAS BEEN OCCURRING NOW AT THIS POINT, IS STILL THE SAME RUMBLING, THROBBING NOISE (SIMILAR TO A BEARING GOING OUT OR BAD), BUT NOW IS CAUSING MORE AND MORE ISSUES SUCH AS THE RATTLING NOISES COMING FROM THE ENGINE THROUGH THE A/C EXHAUST, WHICH HAPPENS HEAR AND THERE SOMETHING I TELL THE DEALERSHIP, BUT YET THEY TELL ME THAT CAN'T DO ANYTHING EVEN I SHOWED THEM THE VIDEO. WELL NOW I BRING IN MY CAR TO THE VW DEALERSHIP ON ANOTHER ISSUE THAT HAD STARTED HAPPENING ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE ORIGINAL NOISE THAT HAS BEEN PROGRESSIVELY GETTING WORSE AND SEEMS TO BE AFFECTING AND CAUSING NEW ISSUES. THIS NEW ISSUES OCCURS WHEN REVERSING MY CAR OUT WITHOUT USING BREAKS JUST MY CLUTCH, I TURN MY WHEEL ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT AND REVERSE OUT, TO HEAR A WOOOOO NOISE THEY IS LOUD AND NOT NORMAL, BUT YET HERE COMES VW TO TELL ME THEY COULD NOT REPEAT THE ISSUE, EVEN THOUGH ONCE AGAIN I HAD VIDEO AS WELL AS AUDIO EVIDENCE OF IT, THEY WOULD NOT HELP ME. MY MILES ARE NOW HIGHER AND IT REALLY SEEMS THEY DON'T CARE AND TREAT ME LIKE I AM CRAZY. I REALLY THINK THERE IS SOMETHING TRULY WRONG WITH MY CAR BECAUSE OF THESE NEW NOISES OCCURRING AND GETTING WORSE.

AFTER MY LAST VISIT WITH THE A/C, I MAYBE THOUGHT THAT THIS DEALER SHIP WOULD HELP ME OUT (VW EL CAJON) UNLIKE (VW KEARNY). I HAD TOLD THEM WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON WITH THIS RUMBLING NOISE THAT HAD STARTED OFF FAINT BUT NOW IS PROGRESSIVELY GOTTEN WORSE AND IS AFFECTING OTHER PARTS, BECAUSE THE NOISE NOW PICKS UP WHEN TURNING. THEY TOLD ME THEY WOULD FIND IT, TOOK IT OUT ON A TEST DRIVE WITH SEVERAL MECHANICS AND THEY ALL TRIED TO PLAY ME AND TOLD ME THEY COULD NOT HEAR ANYTHING EVEN THOUGH THE MECHANIC REP DID HEAR IT. THAN THEY DID A INSPECTION AND COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT IT SEEMED TO ME BECAUSE THEY THAN JUST CAME TO A CONCLUSION THAT MY TIRES WHERE CUPPED AND FEATHERED AS VW KEARNY TOLD ME. I ASKED THEM IF THEY DO MULTIPOINT INSPECTIONS EVERY TIME I BRING MY VEHICLE IN AND THEY SAID YES, THAN I ASKED HOW COME YOU DID NOT CATCH THIS BEFORE, THEY COULD NOT COME UP WITH A ANSWER AND JUST SAID PLEASE SIGN THE PAPER. SO WHAT I DID NEXT WAS TOOK IT TO SEVERAL TIRE DEALERSHIPS AS WELL AS A NEW VW, ALL OF WHICH TOLD ME MY TIRES IS NOT WHAT IS MAKING THAT NOISE. I REALLY FEEL LIKE VW IS AVOIDING THIS ISSUE WITH ME TELL MY WARRANTY EXPIRES TO THAN TELL ME THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM.

I HAD TAKEN MY VEHICLE TO A NEW VW IN EL CAJON, WHERE I HAD A NEW ISSUES POP UP WITH MY A/C. MY A/C WAS NOT BLOWING AS COLD AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. WHEN DRIVING I WOULD NOTICE MY A/C GO FROM COLD TO WARM A LOT. IT WOULD RANDOMLY DO IT ALL THROUGHOUT THE DAY, I WAS NEVER GETTING CONSTANT COLD AIR. I BROUGHT IT IN AND NOTIFIED THE DEALERSHIP OF THE ISSUE AND EVEN POINTED OUT A WIRE THAT SEEMED TO ME TO BE A ODD BECAUSE WIRE WAS SHOWING, THEY TOLD ME DON'T WORRY WE WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS ISSUE. THEY DID NOT DO SO THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE ISSUE AND SAID EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL, EVEN THOUGH I KNEW IT WAS NOT BECAUSE I WAS THE ONE EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE. IT SEEMED TO ME ONCE AGAIN THEY DID LITTLE AS THEY COULD TO ACTUALLY HELP ME AND GET THIS THEY SUPPOSEDLY DID ANOTHER MULTIPOINT INSPECTION AND DID NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT MY TIRES, SOMETHING VW KEARNY MESA SAID TO BE CUPPED AND FEATHERED, BUT YET THEY DID NOT CATCH THIS.

ONCE AGAIN I HAD TO WASTE MORE SCHOOL TIME AND GAS MONEY, AFTER MY LAST 20K VISIT ON MY CAR THE NOISE WAS DRIVING ME MORE AND MORE INSANE, I TRIED IGNORING THE ISSUE AND TURNING THE MUSIC UP, BUT THE NOISE HAD STARTED TO PROGRESSIVELY GETTING TO THE POINT WHERE I COULD HERE IT EVEN WITH MUSIC ON, THAN ON TOP OF THAT I STARTED TO HEAR NEW AND UNUSUAL NOISE THAT HAD NEVER OCCURRED BEFORE, I STARTED TO HEAR SPORADIC HIGH PITCH NOISES FROM THE CENTER CONSOLE WHEN I WAS AT HIGH RPM'S OR WHENEVER HITTING ON THE GAS, IT WOULD START OFF LOW PITCH THAN HIGH PITCH, THAN WOULD RATTLE, THE NOISE SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS COMING FROM THE ENGINE. I HAD SHOWN THE SAME TECHNICIAN A VIDEO RECORDING OF IT, AND HE WAS BAFFLED HE ALSO EVEN HEARD THE NOISE HIMSELF. I ALSO NOTIFIED THEM THAT WHEN DRIVING AT HIGH SPEEDS IT WOULD SOUND LIKE A DOOR WAS OPEN, EVEN MY GUEST I HAVE HAD IN IT COMPLAINED TO ME THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE DOORS ARE OPEN. THE SERVICE REP TRIED TREATING ME LIKE A FOOL AND ROLLED MY BACK WINDOW DOWN A LITTLE THAN BROUGHT ME OUTSIDE AND SAID THIS IS WHY YOU ARE HEARING THE WIND NOISE, AND I HAD TOLD HER I WAS WATCHING YOU THE ENTIRE TIME YOU HAD ROLLED THE WINDOW DOWN, AND THAN SHE TRIED TO TELL ME SHE DIDN'T EVEN THOUGH I WATCHED HER DO IT, THIS PLACE TREATED ME LIKE I WAS CRAZY, AND DISRESPECTED ME IN-FRONT ME , AND I ALSO NOTED THAT SOME RUBBER SEALS WERE COMING OFF THE DOOR EDGES, WHICH SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING, MAKING ME FEEL LIKE THIS CAR WASN'T WELL PUT TOGETHER AND COULD RUN INTO POSSIBLE FUTURE ISSUES. ONCE AGAIN VW TOLD ME THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR YOU ARE JUST HEARING STUFF, AND KICKED ME OUT THE DOOR WITH NO EXPLANATION AT ALL.
