But you are correct about one thing- I've been a service manager for 6 years but still won't let my techs work on my car. Like a grinding noise when driving in standard mode. The third time this incident occurred, the burning smell was so bad, we drove it to the dealership a total of 5800 miles on the car. I had this happen to me over the last few weeks. It was not they were unable to help, it was that they were unwilling to help in any way.
The vehicle was taken to mckinney Volkswagen 855-402-5098, 3600 S central expy, mckinney, tx 75070 , but was not diagnosed or repaired. She drove the vehicle to the dealer who stated that the light that illuminated was an engine light. The second time yesterday it did not come on at all even after 2 hours of operation at highway speeds. The failure mileage was 64,475. Once cool air is produced, it goes straight to the vehicle's cabin through the air conditioning vents. We drove non-stop 870 miles on the 12.
It was driving normally, no abnormal noises, no check engine or other warning lights. This component is the one primarily responsible in sending refrigerant to the evaporator. Safety The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen comes with a long list of safety features that includes antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. I put a video on YouTube showing all 5 of my issues. This car is perfect and affordable. So, even though the subwoofer is producing great sound, the door speakers are trying to keep up.
Only used it once or twice over winter, now that it's warm again it no longer blows cold. After about 2 months problem after problem. The real difference between the Sportwagen and a crossover is the driving experience. Never again will my family or I own another Volkswagen. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016, and will send a second notification when parts are available. Replacing the timing belt since it has a life.
With a lower center of gravity, a European-tuned suspension and a choice of lively engines under the hood, the Jetta Sportwagen is hands-down the more enjoyable vehicle to drive. They reported a low freon level, no leaks, recharge and sent me on my way. This is particularly problematic since they seemed weak from the beginning. In the affected water pumps, the pulley or sprocket that turns the timing belt may develop microfractures causing the timing belt to fail. To end my horrid story: BettaNotGettaJetta. Branding of the car is trustworthy and the safety approval rating from the international highway safety is good. The contact stated that the engine seized frequently while driving and there were metal fragments stuck in the engine and transmission.
For the record, I called vw and requested a tow to service and was told I would have to drive the car in. It turned out to be a compressor failure. Replaced horn and is working again. I am so glad I purchased the 100,000 mile warranty, because that sort of problem after 2 days of ownership does not say much for vw. If your radiator fans don't come on at all, it is usually one of two things.
My wife takes excellent care of her vehicle oil change, etc. The subwoofer was anything, but great. Any resolution found for this problem yet? Had my 2009 Jetta tdi in their shop yesterday, and after diagnostics informed me that I needed both cooling fans, and the intake manifold replaced. Oh, and the air conditioner only works in the winter time. In 2016, I figured that the tire problem had to be in the past. My wife and I recently had a baby, and the car seat fits in the rear without a problem, and there is plenty of cargo room for luggage, stroller, etc.
The engine operation seemed unaffected and it wasn't dark enough to tell if the exterior lights were affected. It's really difficult raising a family and working 30 miles away from my home and dealing with this constantly. Then Monday morning the service manager whom did not believe the master tech decided to drive my car with a non-functioning cooling system to see if he could replicate the problem. The fans were not under warranty or recall. . There was no indication anything was wrong with the vehicle.
Original review: March 13, 2019 I have been driving manual transmission cars my entire life 14 driving years. This refrigerant will get condensed and cooled in the evaporator before it passes through the air conditioning vents to enter the car's passenger compartment. The winters here in Northern Indiana can be pretty harsh. Had it back for a few days, now, and it's still working. Also, I have showed the quote for the water leaking to many auto care centers in houston. So in order for my new car to have heat in the engine I can either turn the blower fan off so no air is moving at all or I can rev my engine constantly. I parked the car that night and slept well believing what they had told me.
The fan control module itself can be bad, but I doubt this. Many places sell the can of refrigerant with the hose and gauge that come with it or the hose separate. I have had it talking to the dealer and constantly writing Volkswagen. The adjuster only approved the replacement of the cooling fans. I had 2 flat tires and had to replace the tires. I'm wondering if it's a transmission issue or if it's just normal.
