2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 152018

Jetta SportWagen TDI 2.0L I4 Mpi

  • Manual transmission
  • 77,000 miles


Our vehicle is a 2010 Jetta Sportwagon with less than 80k miles on it which we purchased in December of 2009 with a 7 year/100k mile extended warranty. We were always really happy with the car until we got the notice that this was one of the cars with the emissions cheats in it. As we had such little mileage on the car we elected (after much contemplation mind you) to have the car "fixed" and took the $5k in restitution they offered. Apparently we were "lucky" because we simply needed a software update. Jump to current date .....

Just after the Emissions "fix" the car started sputtering when in idle speed so we took it to the dealership but were told they did not see any error codes and could not duplicate the problem so we kept driving the car but this issue did not go away and is still a constant aggravation to us as the entire car shakes when this occurs.

June 2018 the BRAKE light, the TRACTION control light, and the ABS light came on. We took it to the dealership and they hooked it up to the computer which instructed them that the ABS MODULE AND PUMP need to be replaced, approximately a $3,000 repair. We took it to another mechanic who instructed us that the pump was fine but the MODULE needed to be replaced due to the fault they read. We elected to wait and see if this is a recurring issue or just a fluke.

July 2018, in addition to the previous lights coming on, now the DIESEL PRE-HEAT light came on, the STEERING light came on, the AIRBAG light came on and the ESP light came on, the engine light came on. Once again we took it to the dealership and got the same answer: the ABS Control module is faulty.

We are getting a third opinion as we have a bad feeling that the software update they installed for the emissions "repair" is setting off some of these communications issues. After 8.5 years without any issues to have these problems AFTER they "fix" the software seems awfully coincidental.
