Jetta

Upon placing in reverse, the engine bogs down, lowering the front end of the vehicle and causes a bad vibration. Shifting into any other gear from reverse causes a hard jerking motion as if it has trouble releasing from reverse gear. This is worse upon just starting the vehicle, or starting and stopping for several trips in one day.

Jetta

  • 8,000 miles
Brand new Jetta with about 8000 miles. After about 20-25 minutes highway driving rattles and stalls on surface street. Had two "just missed" accidents trying to make left turn the last couple of weeks. Have taken it to dealer twice. They tell me can't find anything wrong with it.
