It started after driving for about an hr.

I took to VW and another mechanic both gave the same result...power steering computer failed and have to replace the full rack and pinion $1700-$2000....has anyone had this happen before?

, cannot understand most of the time. my wife's little Fiat 500 has a fantastic BT system. I cannot use the VW and use the LG 'around the neck' headset. any recommendations beside buying a different vehicle?

have this problem but recently.. I took my car to SanTan Volkswagen due smell of oil and gas mix from the vents when I run the engine fan..I notice this issue during idle or at low speeds.. SanTan said it was an oil leak and it cost me $1,725 to fix.. They said that they fixed it.. Till today it's going on 3 weeks and I still smell the same thing... I then took the car to Berge Volkswagen and they said that there's no leaks I mean I can smell it and it's either gas or mix of gas and oil it gives me a headache.. Both dealerships said that its just residue and my care sure drives strange even after the so called oil leak fix.. Please help I don't want to die in my car.

We have been having some issues with the transmission not going into gear so when the engine light came on, I took it to a VW dealer who said that since they could not make it duplicate the problem they could not agree to service it, but they would reset the sensor because they felt that, that was the problem. So when it happened again I took it to Auto Zone who checked it and it said, "Unexpected Mechanical Gear Disengagement". Is there an open recall on these transmission issues, and will the extended warranty, they so eagerly wanted us to purchase, cover it? We've also had problems with it bucking forward or jolting forward when you step on the gas.

The trunk light stays illuminated and when I turn off the engine it continues to stay on- how can I remedy this problem?

Check engine light just came on today 12/14/14. Car serviced less than two months ago what can be the problem.

Was driving at speed and the ESP light came on and the ride became very rough. When coasting, the ride was smooth, but when gas pedal depressed, the ride became rough. At stop, the check engine light would come on, then go off when driving.

(1) Annoying squeeking in front end when temperature is below 40 degrees. (2) Hear a loud scrapping noises from front end when turning hard right or left in wet conditions. (3) On several occasions the parking brake engages and disngages after shitfing into park for no reason. (4) Dashboard lights periodically flicker on and off while driving at all times of the day, clear or cloudy - day or night (not DRL). (5) Car rolls up to a foot or more after parking and releasing foot from brake pedal (knocked over 2 passengers with door when exiting the car). (6) While driving and accelerating to pass, car seems to disengage and rev uncontrolably until foot is taken off the accelerator. (7) Continnental tires are noisy...considering replacing them with Michelins Primacy MXM4 for a quieter and smoother ride.

I have had it to the dealership several times with no answers for the problems. Is it my imagination or do other experience this kinds of occurances? Please advise.
