Top 10 Volkswagen Repair Issues

Each Volkswagen has its own personality, strengths and weaknesses. And while VW comes pretty close to perfect, we’ve become experts in making some of the most common and easily identifiable VW repairs. Read on.

  1. Engine oil sludge – a common issue is when oil sludge builds up, which usually happens between 70,000 and 90,000 miles. Regular oil changes help to prevent this from happening.
  2. Power window fails to go up or down – this is usually the result of a failed window regulator which will need to be replaced.
  3. Head lights – head lights may malfunction as a result of premature head light bulb burnout and or bulb harness failure.
  4. Shifting problems with automatic transmissions – high mileage automatic transmissions occasionally need to be replaced.
  5. Decreased power and fuel economy – direct injection engines are subject to carbon buildup in the intake system which may result in loss of power, a check engine light, and a rough idle. Cleaning of the intake manifold and ports on the cylinder head and intake valves may fix the issue.
  6. Engine misfire – an ignition coil or spark plug may unexpectedly fail to work, resulting in an engine misfire.
  7. Coolant leaks – the water pump can develop a coolant leak.
  8. Oil leaks – oil leaking from the valve cover gasket is not uncommon.
  9. Check engine light on and drivability issues – mass air flow sensor can fail, resulting in the OBD (on board diagnoses) to throw a code.
  10. No start or stalling – this may be caused form a fuel pump failure.

Volkswagen Repair Costs: VW repairs can be costly to fix. We help you cut costs by prioritizing repairs that need immediate attention versus ones that can wait, by sourcing the best parts for the money and by providing the best mechanics to work on your car. That’s what makes our pricing so competitive.

Volkswagen Parts: We generally use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts ONLY if they are cost-efficient. Otherwise, we’ll source an equally durable aftermarket part.

FAQs about your Volkswagen:

When it comes to maintenance, you want to be sure your Volkswagen enters a reputable, knowledgeable and reliable auto repair facility. Independent Motors is backed by years of experience and specialized expertise to answer the most frequently asked questions about your Volkswagen:

A: We recommend an oil change every 5K. A small price to pay to protect your Volkswagen’s engine.

A: The radio’s theft deterrence is activated when power is lost. A code will have to be entered to restore function. This code is provided with the owner’s manual when the vehicle is purchased.

A: On German cars the brake rotors and pads wear together and are designed to be replaced at the same time for maximum braking performance.

A: The brakes can be noisy after sitting over night from condensation. The noise should stop once the car has been driven for a short distance. If the noise persists there may be an issue with the brakes that should be checked out asap.

A: VW’s can potentially have one or many different trouble codes stored when the CEL comes on. That’s why we offer an initial free repair assessment by checking the stored codes and for any obvious under hood problems. If further diagnoses are required we have experienced mechanics and the best diagnostic equipment to ensure we address the problem the first time around.
