The contact owns a 2015 Volkswagen Golf. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V647000 (engine and engine cooling, fuel system, gasoline). The contact made several attempts to reach the manufacturer and was referred to an authorized dealer, but was unable to reach a live agent for weeks. The dealer was unaware as to when the manufacturer would supply the parts to the dealer. The contact was not experiencing a failure. Parts distribution disconnect.

At less than 20,000 miles the glow plug light started coming on while driving at highway speeds and then the vehicle loses power, dropping down to about 30mph. Shutting engine off corrects but will reoccur next time vehicle is started after being parked for the day. Then the check engine light and service now lights also come on. Took to VW dealer, after 4 hours told it was a fuel problem with metal in the fuel. A sample must be sent to vws lab and it will take weeks for an answer. They are presumptively blaming bad fuel and will not cover under warranty. I believe the fuel pump is the source of the metal in the fuel as there has been a bearing squeal noise for about 2 weeks before this happened. I don't have any documents to attach as they still have the vehicle at the dealership.

The car smells like gas from the air vents. I have made multiple attempts for the dealer to fix it, but their response is "your serial numbers are not part of the recall". that's fine, but it smells like gas inside the car!
