The recent media about the deceleration of VW vehicles rang alarm bells with me. The power loss being reported and the shuddering are symptoms I have had for some time with my Suzuki Jimmny. The shuddering is while I am stationary and the steering wheel wobbles madly before sometimes stalling. All this being from brand new, but the powerloss is more recent. My gearbox was changed just 4 weeks after my brand new car went back for its first adjustment check of tappets etc. at the Dealership. It has been back many times since. This leads me to think that the part could be faulty across other vehicles. My car is a Suzuki Jimny 4WD 2004 model that has NEVER been right from when I collected it with only 45kms on the clock from the dealership. Throughout the warranty period and since, the dealer tried many things to rectify the problem and even when it cut out on them they still couldn’t identify what the problem was. I am now losing power suddenly as I drive and can never tell when it is going to happen. The stalling and power deceleration are connected it seems to me. Whatever the VW vehicle problem is, I am confident I have it too and that the same part is causing the problem. I genuinely am concerned I will be rammed one day as there is barely power to even veer off the road when this happens until the power returns which can be 30 seconds or so generally. While I am very disappointed and would have loved my money back (but it was refused), it is fine as a vehicle in all other respects and could rate it higher if I was not so exasperated.
