Oil leak: a few drops under the car, daily. Dealer found a faulty pressure relief valve on cylinder head. To fix they disassembled&replaced: cylinder head, ignition coils, cat converter, head gasket, camshaft adjuster. Thankful 4 warranty!
Fuel Pump Relay went out; car shuddered, check engine light came on, smoke poured out exhaust. Made it to freeway exit. Car would not restart. VW sent towtruck & comp'd a day of rental car. Thank God under warranty still.
My check engine light came on. I took it to dealer, they replaced the intake manifold. This was fixed under the original manufacturers warrenty.
Car would stall after starting. Would eventually start. 1st time in the shop, dealer replaced the fuel pressure sensor. Day after I picked up, car stalled again. 2nd trip to dealer, with VW Tech help replaced fuel pump and control module.
Air intake valve closed. Car was making loud whistling noise. Advised fairly common and was an easy fix.
The coolant was leaking (empty) due to a water pump that went bad. The dealer replaced the water pump under the drivetrain warranty.
The PCV valve had a leak which altered the pressure in the engine causing misfires and made the engine light turn on. Repairs were charged to me (the owner) but then reimbursed because VW covered it under the powertrain warranty.
Engine shut down at the end of an freeway off ramp. I started it back up, pressed the accelerator to keep the RPMs up while in park, and then switched to drive as the RPMs dropped. Dealer replaced the intake manifold. Car shut off again at the end of a different freeway off ramp. Had to restart it. Dealer said there was something wrong with the fuel pump and the cylinders needed to be cleaned of carbon build up. Engine was still not running smoothly and needed to be kept for a full diagnostic. Dealer found a problem in the fuel supply.
