Question about 2004 Volkswagen R32

3 Answers

2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM) stalled on me at a red light,

In February of 08 the car stalled on me at a red light, and the check engine light came on. I had to put the car in PARK to start it again. Several times after, the car hesitated on acceleration.

    My problem is the same, usually acts like its going to stall out and then will take off, but has stalled 2 times. Took to the dealer and they said there was nothing showing and it couldn't have happened, very aggravating. It is intermittent-will go a couple of weeks and not do it, and start doing it again

I have had the same problem in my R32 and I will also be taking mine back in but it is not nearly as bad this time around. In my case the first time they replaced the entire fuel system. It took almost a month to do and it is acting up again. I would say a design flaw of sorts?

I told my dealer about this problem and made an appointment. The car stalled on them 3 times on testing. It ended up being the fuel canister (it was soaked), and was replaced. I was given a rental car. I am now experiencing the same problem, and will be taking the car back to the dealer this week (4/18/08), for what I suspect is the same problem. Has anyone else had this problem w/ their 2008 R32? Could this be a design flaw.

It's probably not that the wheels are moving at a different speed. It sounds like a simple alignment issue to me. Installing a bearing could have thrown it off. You should just have a simple alignment job done.
