As we tell everyone else who comes on here with warning lights: When there's a warning light on, that means a trouble code is stored in the computer. Don't ask us to guess what caused the light to go on when all you have to do is get the trouble codes read.

run the fault codes and look for PCM bus communication problems
could be a bad ground problem

2004 Volkswagen... | Answered on Jan 30, 2018

Yes indeed... (suggestions)

Get your CODES read... Preferably at an EXHAUST
shop... They (in my opinion) are much less likely
to try and sell you those OXYGEN SENSORS you
will be "offered" at AUTOZONE... (useless).

OXYGENS SENSORS seldom make the news...
like thermometers in FLU-season: they merely
report the news...

A BLOCKED exhaust system will perform exactly
as you have described...!!

Check out all the prices of all the PARTS you can
throw away MONEY trying to surround the trouble
a CATALYTIC converter/muffler COST will pale by
comparison... (go to rockauto.com or AMAZON).

In my humble opinion

Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

Take it back and make them fix it, if they refuse sue them in small claims and/or contact your state's consumer protection office (or bureau of automotive repair if you have one) and file a formal complaint, that will get them moving.
