2011 Volkswagen Jetta Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Condensation in the heater case may cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system after sitting for two hours or more. Our technicians tell us that a cleaner is available for the heater case and the drain system should be checked for debris.

Engine -- Verified

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.

2011 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls (Recent)

Electrical & Lights, March 25, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The "converter" box is protected by the same fuse as the horn and anti-theft system alarm. If this fuse were to blow, power would be lost to the "converter" box. As a result, the engine management computer, lights, and wipers would all stop functioning. What all this means is the engine could stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will separate the wiring for the horn and anti-theft system from the power supply to the "converter" box and route the wires to separate fuses. Due to an insufficient quantity of repair kits, this recall is not expected to begin until May, 2011.

Exhaust & Emissions, September 7, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A stainless steel exhaust tip installed after production may extend beyond the original length of the factory-installed exhaust pipe. It's possible for inadvertent contact to occur, which could cause a burn. Dealers will replace the stainless steel exhaust tip as necessary to correct this concern. The Volkswagen recall number is 26G8/U3.

Bought the 2011 VW Jetta SE a couple of weeks ago. Check engine light lit. Took car into repair at Riverside VW. Told it was bad relay for air pump(emissions). Problem fixed. 3 days later, check engine light on again. with radio off, you can hear some kind of grinding noise when car revs 2000-3000 rpm. So far, this is my first bad experience since owning 2 VW's in past.
