problem #2

Jan 292022

Tiguan 2.0T

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

I had the clockspring replaced March 2021 and it broke AGAIN January 2022 (less than a year and I only drove around 10K miles! The part is backordered STILL as of today 5/14/22 with no end in sight. People have been waiting 7+ months since November 2021 for this part with no updates! It’s a safety issue when your airbag and horn do not function. My car failed my inspection and the DMV suspended my registration. I was not able to drive my car for months, finally decided to just trade it in. There should be a huge lawsuit over this. Corporate VW would not give me a rental or do anything.
