This vehicle was rented from enterprise on 3/26, but driven <30 min that evening. On 3/27, it was driven a great deal (2-9pm). In the P.M.. I sat in the vehicle, windows up, heat on, awaiting someone's arrival for approx. 20 min., I began to feel weird bodywise & exiting the vehicle, noticed how sluggish I was. I arrived home at 9pm & walking in, I felt fatigue & noticed that my body was becoming sore. By the next hour, I'd become extremely fatigued & decided to bathe & call it a night. I shared my concerns with my daughter noted my symptoms & went to sleep. By morning, I woke up feeling even more sore, plus had a fever. Unable to function, I called my family & dr. & was advised to visit the er. I was told I had the flu, but I denied the diagnosis & a swab came back negative. They said my wbc was up wi/ no explanation from the cultures. They couldn't put a finger on it & they decided to keep me overnight. By the a.M., my wbc had increased & more tests were ran. They said it was possibly viral but later said they didn't have much to tell me. They put me on two antibiotics & my hospital stay lasted until 3/31. Initially, the car was not suspected suspected the car, until 3/28 when my dad called the hospital & mentioned how he felt when in it..he said something is with this car & he felt his eyes rolling in the back of his head. He said he couldn't be driving it as it was. His symptoms led him to do the internet & he came across numerous reports about vws' smell & it sickening people. He directed me to the same info & told me to tell the doctors about the car and his findings. I did so, but to no avail. Having seen that there has been no developments, recalls, associated with this known issue, I am also submitting this complaint. The commonality between my symptoms and others' leads me to believe that there should be further investigation into this to prevent sickness.

Im the owner of a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta gli. I purchased the car brand new on January 2, 2014, from fladeboe VW in irvine, ca. Currently it has 9,000 miles on it. In August 2014 I started to hear a loud rattling noise coming from the dashboard area of my car. I made an appointment at the dealer to have it looked at. I first took it in on August 15, 2014. The mechanic at the VW dealer heard the rattling I described and attempted to fix it. Car was returned to me, only to have the rattling return. I made a second appointment and took it in a second time. They attempted to fix it again. Car was returned to me again, only to have the loud rattle return. During the last appointment VW had a specialist come out to try and figure it out. Since the loud rattling was duplicated in two like cars, they claim it as, operating normal. The lead mechanic at the dealership told me that they can't always fix these rattles, even know he said it's an issue. The rattling has got louder over time. Since they don't know what is causing it, how can I feel safe driving it" I asked how they claim its operating normal?? they said since it duplicated in two like cars, they deemed it normal. I had a total of four loaner cars during this time and all were Jettas. Two out of the four loaners, also rattled. VW customer care asked that I get a second opinion at a different dealership. I made an appointment at a different dealership, only to have them call me the day before saying they can?T work on it. They informed me that VW told them not to accept my car in for service under no circumstances for the rattling noise. I asked them why? they informed me that the same VW special tech would have to come out and see the vehicle. Since he has already dealt with my car at the first dealership, he won"T look at it again.
