 Description of the problemI have a 2013 jetta sportwagen, automatic transmission. I had been driving my car for about 6 miles on a local, but busy road. I stopped at a red traffic light. While engine was idling waiting for traffic light to change, the engine stalled without warning. I was able to restart it, but then engine stalled again before traffic light turned green. When traffic light finally turned green, i was able to restart engine and drove car to safe location where i then turned engine off. When i turned engine back on, i waited, letting it idle, and it stopped again with no warning. I did not see any check engine light. I had car towed to dealer who could not find any codes and could not replicate the problem. I researched the problem on the internet and saw that in a q & a for the radio talk show cartalk, cartalk hosts recommended a new crankshaft position sensor be installed to correct this same issue, also on a jetta. Dealer did this at my request, but i had to pay $400+. Dealer said they would take up this issue up with the manufacturer and see if manufacturer would reimburse me. So far, they have not gotten back to me. I am driving car, but do not know if problem is resolved or will recur.
