Volkswagen Golf GTI & Jetta GLI Engine Stall Defect Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Volkswagen of America for an Engine Stall Defect in its Golf GTI and Jetta GLI vehicles, years 2019 to present. Consumers allege that Golf GTI and Jetta GLI vehicles equipped with a manual transmission will repeatedly, and without warning, shut down or stall when moving at slow speeds or coming to a stop, even when the vehicle is in neutral and the clutch is disengaged. Drivers must then manually restart the vehicle’s engine. Unlike a typical stall, the Engine Stall Defect manifests very gently, often leaving drivers momentarily unaware of the issue, until they try to accelerate again. This poses a serious safety hazard to drivers, especially those in busy traffic. Despite countless complaints submitted to Volkswagen, they fail to acknowledge the issue and offer no support to those affected.
