My wife drives an 03 Jetta with the 2.0. 92k on the odometer. 5 speed transmission.
The accelerator becomes unresponsive at random times, but usually when at steady speed or during acceleration.
This is an extremely widespread problem and it can surely be only 1 or 2 issues.
What is the fix?
(FYI, this car has been babied and well-maintained. Within the last 500 miles, it has also received new spark plugs, a new coolant temp sensor (which did NOT solve the P0118 engine code), and a new crank sensor.)
