Last Sunday I was making a quick run to the hardware store in my 2010 Golf TDI. I have about 16,000 miles on it. I went about a mile and came to a stop sign. Pulled away and as I got about halfway through first gear the engine just bogged down and stopped accelerating for a second and then continued to run somewhat normally, although I did not push it. The Malfunction Indicator Light was lit up steadily, not flashing, and the coil light was flashing, which I think the manual says malfunction in the diesel engine, not a glow plug thing as it indicates when on steadily (without flashing). I called roadside assistance because in the past, when my MIL went on, the told me not to drive it. They told me to park it and call back in the morning because it was Sunday and they couldn't have it towed anywhere. So I called Monday Morning and set up a tow through the roadside assistance and called the dealer to let them know it was on the way. They told me that if the MIL wasn't flashing that I could drive it in. OK, call roadside for the third time and cancel that. Took the motorcycle to work because I was already a couple hours late and dropped the car off on Monday night when my wife could go with me and bring me home. In past experiences, VW would give me a rental when this sort of thing happened. Now they wanted to charge me $30/day. I refuse and end up late for work every day for the rest of the week, as I have to drop off my wife at work every day and pick her up. They order a new O2 sensor. There are none available in Chicago, so they have to order from LA. The part doesn't arrive until Friday afternoon and I am told it is a 4 hour teardown or something so...talk to you next Monday! They call Monday..the sensor is not working with this motor so they have to order a different one. They finally offer me a free rental...a week later. (And the irony of it is I am off work this week). A brand new white Jetta...PUKE. Anyway does anybody have any experience with this problem? It makes me nervous that an O2 sensor would take that much work to figure out. Frustrating.
