NHTSA investigating over 37,000 VW Jetta TDI sedans for engine stalling

2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Wonderful – here is some more recall news for you guys. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into 37,889 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI sedans after receiving complaints of engine stalling due to fuel system contamination (and you were thinking that diesels are a better bet – we’re being sarcastic).

“The Office of Defects Investigation has received seven complaints on 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI vehicles alleging that while driving and without warning, the engine limped and then stalled almost immediately,” said NHTSA. “A preliminary evaluation has been opened to access the scope, frequency and potential safety consequences associated with the alleged defect.”

We’re pretty sure that Volkswagen, like every other automaker, is working diligently with the NHTSA and will let us know soon enough if a recall will be necessary.
