1000 miles on my Jetta and have sputtering sometimes with shakey stops. seems like the fuel pump is isn't delivering fuel right. I'm off to the dealer tomorrow. Also my passenger window just started going down on its own. anybody dealt with the lemon law for washington? just 2 weeks in on this car and want to play the cards right in case they can't or won't fix. Do they have a pump that works correctly? Am I doomed and will be drinking dealer coffee for the next 100000 miles never wanting a german car again. Quality isn't what it used to be! This sucks.

German quality is the same as it's ever been! It is possible you have a pump problem and the most important thing is to 1st lodge the complaint. The passenger window thing could be a misaligned window activating the pinch protection. Try this, raise the window all teh way up and press 1 more time, lower all teh way, press 1 more time. Does that make any difference?

looks like they have the window problem on the radar to fix. As far as the sputtering it's fairly rare but the stopping is rough and it downshifts into the first gear early. Choppy stops 40 percent of the time. Also when it's warmed up and you hold it at 2500 rpm the vehicle shakes sometimes then other times it's perfectly fine and smooth. Is this early warning for the pump that others have experienced? Taking it in for 2nd time next week.

Get it diagnosed, then worry.

Many new cars have initial problems. First thing is to give the dealer a chance to make it right. Plenty of time to be the outraged victim if that's what you want.

Yesterday my cat threw up. I suspect my HPFP. And the "stealership". And Mexicans.
