2002 Volkswagen GTI Problems

Ignition Coil, Ignition Wires, and Spark Plugs May Fail

An ignition coil or spark plug may fail unexpectedly resulting in an engine misfire and possible illumination of the Check Engine Light. Vehicles equipped with spark plug wires may also develop a misfire caused by a failed spark plug wire.

Power windows fail more often than manually operated window cranks

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

High Mileage Automatic Transmissions May Have Shifting Problems
