Drivers of the 2019 or 2020 Volkswagen Jetta may experience any number of braking system malfunctions. From rotors that warp prematurely to a faulty autonomous braking system that engages for no reason, Volkswagen customers are voicing their concerns over the safety of these vehicles. Although there are currently several recalls affecting these vehicles, they do not expressly address braking system issues, leaving many individuals without clear answers or permanent solutions.
One owner of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta stated that metal plates in the road often trigger the car’s front-assist sensor to activate the autonomous emergency braking system, even when no obstruction is present. As a result, the vehicle suddenly decelerates to a complete stop. This owner describes how passengers can be caught off guard by this sudden and often violent deceleration, causing them to fall forward quickly and jarringly. Other drivers have shared reports of brakes that squeal excessively when engaged, emergency brakes that do not disengage properly, and rotors that become so warped they need to be replaced much sooner than expected.
