Volkswagen has announced that they are recalling certain models of the 2013 Jetta hybrid vehicles manufactured from October 2012 through October 2013 and are equipped with a DQ-200 direct shift Gearbox. They stated that due to the gearbox fluid additives, internal components of the gearbox may corrode. The deposits from this corrosion may cause an electrical short and result in a stall like condition.
This sudden loss of power while driving increases the risk of a crash. Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the gearbox oil with a non corrosive version, free of charge. The recall began on December 6, 2013. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen’s recall number is 34F6/4V.
