#1 - Engine Noise problem of the 2005 Volkswagen Jetta
Hi, so my 2005. 5 2. 5l Volkswagen Jetta started making noises upon acceleration and the engine would shift quite heavily during idling. The check engine light went on and I took the car to dealership. Apparently, there is an issue with the timing chains of the engine. Never missed a maintenance, after only 68,000 miles it doesn't seem okay that timing chains are already affected. After looking at a few forums online, it seems that this is a very common problem for Volkswagen Jettas from that time. Please investigate! thank you. It was 12/21/2012 when this engine noise issue happened.

#2 - Engine Noise problem of the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 3VWRL7AJ1A_. When I started my car, a 2010 Jetta sedan tdi, it started making a strange noise, but still ran. I tried to drive it over to the Volkswagen dealer which was approximately 2 miles away. I pulled out onto the highway and achieved a speed of approximately 30mph. The car continued to make the noise and began to lose power within a half mile. I pulled into the parking lot of a shopping center at which time the engine died and would not restart. The car had to be towed to the Volkswagen dealer, wallace imports of johnson city, TN. It took them approximately 1 1/2 weeks to get the parts in and repair the vehicle. The service representative explained to my husband that there was a catastrophic failure of the high pressure fuel pump, which resulted in metal fragments contaminating the entire fuel system. As a result, he was told that every part which came in contact with the fuel had to be replaced, including the fuel tank, fuel lines, filters, fuel injectors, and many others. There was a two page list of the parts used to fix my car. My concern is that this could happen again resulting in an unsafe situation. Further, we also have 2010 Jetta tdi sportswagen and have concerns of the same problem occurring at highway speeds since my husband routinely make round trips of 230 miles at least twice a week traveling mainly on the interstate. It was June 4, 2012 when this engine noise issue happened.

#3 - Engine Noise problem of the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
The car involved was a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta. On 2/1/06 I leased a new 2006 Jetta only to have the engine not start on 2/27/06. I was stuck in a gas station parking lot with a dead cell phone awaiting a tow truck for 1. 5 hrs. The car was brought to the dealership and they had no idea what was wrong with it. Later that day they told me possibly a fuel pump but weren't sure and that I should arrange for a rent-a-car. They had the car for 3 days and when I picked it up they stated it was a program that needed to be updated and everything is fine. It is now a week and a half later and the ignition key wouldn't turn in the ignition. I continued to switch between my alarm key and mechanic key until it finally turned and started. Once on the road the car died in mid drive. The engine completely turned off while doing about 25mpg. Thank god there was no one around me, the car came to a stop and restarted immediately and driven back to work. Leaving work the car didn't turn over at all. You could hear the cranking of the engine but was not turning over, the same problem as before. The car is now at the dealership again, no loaner car was given to me and there was several complaints already underway. Another problem is the cars engines sound. When the car is initially started in the morning it is a hard loud rough sound that gives after a minute or so. This engine noise issue occurred 02/27/06.
