 Description of the problemSo my vehicle is a 2013. 5 vw jetta gli (nhtsa does not have options to list the variant of the car). So the car stalled on me the first time in july when i was getting of the exit .... Just lost complete engine power ... And basically the car shut off on me. The steering got really stiff and the brakes became hard and it was an extremely horrific situation. The battery indicator came on ... And then after cranking the car back up it ran fine. Took it to the dealer the day after (because they needed an appointment) ... They said nothing was wrong with car and they replaced the crank shaft sensor as an "educated guess". Anyways after about a week .... The car shut off on me twice within a 5 minute difference. Each time the battery light came on and that was it. And the last time the epc light came on as well. Dealer cannot find any problems with my car since they cannot replicate an intermittent issue. So this is a major safety hazard ... And not a good feeling to lose control of your car in the middle of the road. I have lost complete faith in vw and my car.
