I'm curious if anyone has experienced or heard about problems with the 2012 TDI 6 speeds? I picked up my new wagon on Saturday. When I exited the freeway after driving for about an hour, the car died at the red light. At first I chalked it up to user error, figuring it had been a few years since I'd driven a manual transmission.
The next day, the exact same thing happened. Upon exiting the freeway and waiting at a red light, the car just died.
This has now happened five or six times. Always after driving on the freeway (in 5th or 6th gear) and coming to a complete stop. The car just dies. There's no shaking (as if the clutch wasn't depressed fully) and I can't even hear the motor die (usually due to the A/C and radio being on.
My brand new car is now back at the dealership where they are taking a look at it. I'm obviously concerned since this is a safety issue.
Anyone else heard of something like this happening or experienced on the Jetta Wagon or any other TDI manual transmission?
Feedback or advice would be appreciated.
