Volkswagen Owners Take Note:
VW announces voluntary recall
If you drive a Jetta, Jetta SportWagen, GTI, or Eos built between September 2008 and August 2009 (basically the 2009 models, though this applies to some from 2010, as well) expect a call from VW soon, since your car is about to be recalled.
The recall affects 13,500 vehicles equipped with DSG transmission; a faulty temperature sensor is to blame, and affected vehicles could experience illuminated dashboard warning lamps and, in rare occurrences, the transmission may shift into neutral. If you’ve got questions or concerns about your vehicle, give the Volkswagen Loyalty Center a call at 1-800-444-8982.
Just be glad your vehicle isn’t a Ford Pinto:
