2009 Volkswagen Jetta Problems

High Mileage Automatic Transmissions May Have Shifting Problems

Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.

Power Window May Fail Due to Window Regulator

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

Difficult to Diagnose Electrical Issues Are Typically Due to Ground Issues

Electrical issues that are difficult to diagnose—and sometimes intermittent—are typically due to ground wiring issues. The most troublesome ground locations are under the battery or at the engine.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls

Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Stability Control Fails

The anti-lock braking system and electronic stability control may fail to activate when needed due to a failure of the control unit that operates the systems. Dealers will update the anti-lock brake system control module software to perform a diagnostic test, and will replace units that fail this test free of charge to resolve the concern.

Volkswagen Recalls Certain 2006–2010 Models Due to a Possible Fuel Leak

Volkswagen is recalling certain 2007–2009 Jetta, Jetta Sportwagon, Golf, and Rabbit, as well as 2006–2010 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles equipped with a 2.5L gasoline engine due to a possibly damaged fuel supply line. Under hood fasteners may chafe against the fuel supply line, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will perform vehicle-appropriate inspections and repairs in order to protect the fuel supply line from chafing damage.

Automatic Transmission Shifts Into Neutral Without Warning

Connectors for a temperature sensor inside the direct shift gearbox (DSG) transmission may have been insufficiently crimped. They could incorrectly read a high transmission oil temperature, and abruptly shift into neutral. The shift position indicator in the instrument panel would begin to flash and the "Depress Brake Pedal" indicator light will be illuminated to alert the driver to apply the brakes. The abrupt shift could lead to a crash. Volkswagen and Audi dealers will reprogram the transmission control module (TCM) with updated software. The recall began October 20, 2009. The Volkswagen recall number is 37E3/S7 and the Audi recall number is 37E5/J7.

2009 Jetta TDI just broke 100,000 miles (extended warranty now over). Has been an awesome car for me so far. A great mix of power & economy, and very comfortable for the 3 hrs I commute daily (round trip). Avg. MPG in the summer: 48; Avg. MPG in the winter: 41. Only problems I've had are: a) the auxiliary audio plug in the center console stopped working, and b) the pricing for some service item...
As another new owner mentioned, the frills are kinda low, but it handles great. A true poor man's Bimmer. Some strange issues, the AC has recently been smelling like wet socks, had the original DSG hard shifting issues, TDI models have little to no options
