Plug in the vin number, and click search.

If it’s outstanding it’ll look like this.

I have had the update, and can confirm the drivability and niggling issues were fixed. But VW shows it not done. Maybe for a trip back to the mothership is in order.

all in all, the stalling issue is a dead issue, the ecu flash fixed the problem. Don’t be afraid of a 19 6MT

Strange. I just purchased a 2019 Autobahn 6MT, only 440 miles on it and I’m noticing this issue. The problem is, when I search my VIN for recall, it says there are none available. Since this is a known issue, do you think catching it on video and seeing a dealer is enough? My build date is 06/19

Would be helpful if you could video it because if you go to the dealer and they can't get it to do it at least you can show them. But I would think the dealer would know about it by now.

You don’t need the vid... it won’t pull up on a recall list as it was never a recall. Just a service bulletin.

you bought it new from a dealer?

He will if he has a shitty dealer who claims they aren't aware of the service bulletin and can't replicate the stalling. Not too likely now but other members have posted that their dealer was unaware after the bulletin was out.

just drive the car it will go away soon. Mine did it at 900 miles and it went away at 1,000 essentially. No one knows why the 19s are doing it but put some miles on the car and it will be fine.

VW definitely knows why they were stalling and there's a service bulletin for it.

Understood and mine was on the latest update when I bought it feb of 2020. So mine had the service bulletin deal done and mine still stalled but I have not seen the issue since 900 miles and the car is at 13,000 miles now

Mine stopped doing it as soon as the dealer replaced the camshaft sensor some 16,000 miles ago. The software update made no difference and I'm running a stage 1 IE tune anyway.

My camshaft disintegrated back in June. The car has been sitting at the dealership since then, waiting for a new engine to arrive.
