Defect Alert — VW Jetta Stalling Problem
We are seeing a growing trend of distressed drivers calling into the 1 800 LEMON LAW hotline with VW Jetta stalling problems. And we are not the only ones who are hearing about this issue–the message boards are full of concerned consumers. One consumer wrote ” I have a 2012 TDI Sportwagen and it has just started with the stalling for no apparent reason. It lurches on acceleration, the battery light flickers and then it stalls. It will start right up again, but it is scary, to say the least. For a much longer period, the car will shake like it is going to stall when I come to a stop. It never has, but it feels like it is choking for air or fuel.”
We have already had three Lemon Law clients receive complete repurchases this Summer as a result of the VW Jetta stalling problem. If you are having stalling or hesitation issues with your Volkswagen Jetta, it is important that you report the issue to a Volkswagen-authorized dealership. Keep a log of when the stalling occurs (morning, afternoon, evening), how fast you are driving, and how much gas is in the tank. Offer to take the service advisor on a test drive in an effort to duplicate the problem. Even if they cannot confirm the problem, make sure you receive a repair invoice which confirms that you brought the stalling matter to their attention. If a repair was made, make sure it is properly listed. Keep all of these repair invocies in a safe place.
Once you are back three or more times for your VW Jetta stalling problem, or in the shop an extended period of time, it is essential that you contact a Lemon Law Attorneyin your state to familiarize yourself with State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Statutes. Don’t stall when it comes to getting your issue resolved.
