 Description of the problemI was driving my 2014 jetta se (14 months ago 13658 miles on the car) on november 25, 2015, when it completely stopped on highway 101 in california at 4 pm on the day before thanksgiving. I was at a complete stop when the engine turned off. I turned off my car and restarted it and the engine was shaking badly (from side to side) and the more i drove the car the more lights started turning on. I was stuck in major holiday traffic and almost got hit on numerous occasions and got honked at multiple times because i was unable to keep up in traffic due to the violent shaking of the vehicle. Going above 25 miles an hour caused the car to make a loud noise and shake even more vigorously, making it impossible and dangerous to drive. The first lights to turn on included the epc, oil light (engine low oil) and engine (emission control light). However, as i drove the car more, to pull over to safety because i was unable to pull over at the current place i broke down, the more lights started to turn on such as the tire pressure system. I had to be towed to the nearest dealer who said 3 of my 4 ignition coils were misfiring. I got the car back on december 1, 2015 and my car broke down again on december 4, 2015, with the same problem. It was brought back into a different dealer due to breaking down in a different area. The ignition coils have failed again, causing my engine to shut down and putting me in a vulnerable place. I am lucky that my engine failed on a city street the second time compared to a busy highway but this car is not safe and i am lucky to be alive, because the first break down on a major highway was not only scary but a life-threatening situation.
