problem #1

May 162007

Golf 4-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 63,000 miles
Vehicle slowed dramatically at highway speed down to 35 mph, I had to use the emergency blinkers to get to the slow lane, a very dangerous situation on a congested highway. Clutch and flywheel replaced, and the same failure happened again with oem parts only 3 weeks later.
