Volkswagen Recalls Ignition Coils

(4) Comments Add a Comment »

Here at RepairPal, we have heard several VW owners complain of Check Engine Lights with a misfiring engine, rough idle and poor acceleration. Well VW has sent out letters to many, if not all VW owners to notify them of a recall on the ignition coils.

From the Volkswagen Website:

Volkswagen is conducting this service program to inspect and, if necessary, replace ignition coils installed in some 2001 – 2007 model year vehicles.

The key points of the program are:

  • When your Volkswagen Dealer has sufficient parts in stock, Volkswagen will notify you via First-Class mail
  • Your authorized Volkswagen Dealer will repair your vehicle for this condition at no cost to you
  • If you have paid to have ignition coils replaced in your Volkswagen prior to this program, you may be eligible for reimbursement. 

To find out if this recall applies to your vehicle, or if you have any questions, please contact a local VW Dealer near you: VW Dealerships

    Add the 2008 VW Passat Wagon to the list. I've had this happen twice in the last month.

    2003 Jetta GLI ignition coil went out yesterday. I would hope the repair would be covered by a recall!
