I had the same issue. The air intake manifolds have a recall. The arm sticks in open position this causing an incorrect air ratio which in turn makes your car lose power and possibly stall. You may want to check that first.

Also yes. I had to change a coil too.

This just happened to me a few minutes ago. Any resolution with your car problems? If so, what did you have to do?

This exact thing has happened to me.. any resolutions from anyone? grpack1, did the intake manifold recall solve the issue for you?

Yes it did. VW North America paid for the warranty work due to the recall and changed out the entire manifold.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! I have scheduled an appointment with my dealer and they have confirmed the same. They also mentioned there is a "clock spring" and "computer" recall warranty as well. Might be helpful to anyone else on this thread. Thanks again!

What does it mean if my drive or whatever gear I'm in flashes and it seems like the engine just revs like when in neutral but when actually in drive

Ok I've been racing my cc for 3 years. Those issues are various although similar in diagnostics. First cheapest. Spark plugs. Then direct ignition could. After that could be a fuel injector. If your timing is off remember the 2.0 turbo is a zero clearance valve set up. So continuing to drive it will run repairs up to $6000.00 also the throttle body can be sticking if it happens at the 5-6k rpm marker. Just turn it off and restart and get to dealer where the repairs and related misdiagnosed issues will be covered under warranty if they fix the wrong thing first.
