VW Dealers Ordered to Stop Selling Certain Models

Volkswagen has requested its dealerships to stop selling four vehicles starting immediately.

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible have been issued a mandatory stop-sale order for a transmission oil cooler leak issue. The affected vehicles are all powered by a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine mated to an automatic transmission. The German automaker has asked its dealers to not sell, lease or dealer-trade any of the vehicles and if a dealer is using the vehicle as a demo, it should stop immediately.

An inspection and repair procedure is being formulated and the required parts for a fix will be available within the next week. It is unclear whether a recall will be issued, but it is likely.

    That’s an especially bad issue for a sealed transmission. No drain plug so you can’t change the fluid. I don’t think you can even add any. Many automakers are transitioning to that type of design, not just VW.

    they should stop selling THEIR ENTIRE LINE UP. Chinese cars have better build quality than this germans.
