2010 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

problem #5

Sep 232013

Jetta 4-cyl

  • 79,000 miles


I was driving at highway speed and the car immediately lost power. A semi almost rear ended me because I lost speed so quickly. I lost control of the vehicle and had to fight the steering wheel to get off the road as the steering got extremely tight. I had the vehicle towed to the dealer and they identified the high pressure fuel pump as failing.

Glow plug light came lit on dash and said "service engine immediately." Engine then lost power on interstate (dangerous). When re-cranked, engine was sluggish and would not accelerate above 40mph. VW service said it was due to a faulty fuel pump.
