yes, i think that my car has everything listed here and then some. I also have something wrong with my odometer. it is fine until i get up to about 60mph then i have no clue how fast im going. i didnt know this at the time i bought the car cuz i only drove it in town. but the first time i took it out of town over by seattle it said i was doing 60mph but the police officer did not agree and wrote me a ticket for doing 75mph. that was a wonderful day. with all the other repairs i have been making on this thing i havent been able to get this fixed due to the money situation and i have all together got 3 speeding tickets in two years with this car. I am 44yrs old and i have my class b cdl with passenger endorsement and have not had a ticket in 20years til this car. its done wonders with my insurance rate... thank you volkswagon.

The mass air flow sensor failed causing the check engine light to come on. This has happened on two different sensors. I now clean it regularly.

Check engine light came on. Seems like a faulty issue to have after 11k miles. Cost est is $600 to repair at VW dealership

Took forever to figure out what was wrong because I couldn't ever get a code to print even though there was a lot of issue with the acceleration and the check engine light was on. I suggest checking on this if you have a mysterious check engine light!

My car was diagnosed with a pvc pipe and now needed a MAF sensor. itll be 262 bucks after just paying 478 dollars to fix other check engine problems!!! It still isn't fixed and I don't know if I should report a lemon law. especially since I bought an extended warrenty and everything wrong with it is NOT covered under the warrenty
Replace sensor 2 on my car
