2013 Volkswagen JETTA Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1553666
 Internal NHTSA #11194348
 ManufacurerVolkswagen Group of America, Inc.
 Model Year2013
 File date18/03/19
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe vehicle stalls intermittently, losing power to the engine. At first, it began to happen monthly (50,000 miles) only while the vehicle was stationary (at stop lights or idling in the driveway). The engine would lose power and the battery light would come on, and the vehicle could be started again immediately. The vehicle also exhibited lurching acceleration at low gears. It would not trigger any codes (for either issue), and multiple vw dealerships were unable to replicate and diagnose the problem. The stalling then occurred while driving (70,000 miles), causing the steering to lock up. This occurred while on a freeway at 70 mph; the vehicle had to be pushed off the freeway by an officer and then towed. Still, the vehicle did not produce any codes. After over 1 month at the dealership service center and replacement of 4 different wires that appeared corroded, and the transmission valve body, the same issues persisted. The stalling began to happen more frequently, both while stationary and while driving, and began to trigger the epc light (80,000 miles). By this time it was clearly unsafe to drive. Not willing to rent a car for an unknown duration for the service center to attempt to replicate and diagnose the issue, i was forced to purchase a new vehicle.
