Volkswagen of America has decided to recall 13,500 of their cars. The dual-clutch transmission problems could lead to a warning on the dashboard.

The recall affects 2009 model year and a limited number of 2010 Jetta, Jetta SportsWagen, GTI and Eos vehicles built between September 2008 and August 2009. Volkswagen says some of the vehicles could have a faulty temperature sensor in the transmission, which could lead to the warning lamp lighting up on the dashboard. They said in rare cases, the transmission could shift into neutral.

Audi of America, the luxury division of Volkswagen, also made a recall yesterday. This affected 2,500 vehicles with similar problems. All of the cars were built between September 2008 and August 2009.

The Volkswagen recall affects cars from the model year 2009, along with a limited number of 2010 Jetta, Jetta SportsWagen, GTI and Eos vehicles. The Audi recall affects 2009 MY A3, TT and TT Roadster models equipped with S tronic transmissions. A limited number of 2010 MY A3 cars equipped with S tronic transmissions are also affected.

Volkswagen said some of their vehicles could have a faulty temperature sensor in the transmission, which could lead to the warning light showing up on the dashboard. In rare cases, the transmission could shift into neutral. Audi also cited problems with warning lamps, and the same problem of the transmission shifting into neutral in rare cares.

If you own one of the cars affected by the recall, you will be contacted by Volkswagen so that you can take the car into a shop for repairs or new sensors. But if you want to contact the company’s Loyalty Center, you can do that too. Call them at 1-800-444-8982.
