2015 VW Passat does not accelerate

Asked by Jul 07, 2016 at 05:19 PM about the 2015 Volkswagen Passat TDI SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car does not accelerate after stopping at a
light, for instance. Light changes and the car
does not move. Almost hit by oncoming
traffic on several occasions. Very scary. Had
it in for service at least five times and
dealers say that they can't duplicate the
problem. Car is at dealer again now having
yet another diagnostic. Camshaft, sensor or
what?

Does it just rev up when you push on the accelerator?

No, it just doesn't move at all,then it hesitates and catches slowly. I am afraid that we are going to be t-boned.The custmer service rep manager at VW is not helpful. The dealer has the car now. I saw one guy who reported to the bbb lemon law.

The dealer checked it out again and is telling me to use a higher grade gasoline. Ridiculous!
