Question: the epc light and check engine light come on about 65% of the times i drive it.

This will cause poor acceleration and periodically stall the car. ive only owned it for less than three months. From what i understand the car is still under a limited powertrain warranty as it has less than 60,000 miles on it. Research that ive done indicates it to be a powertrain problem. so hopefully when i take it to a vw dealer they will fix it under warrranty. Any advice?

Call the dealership to ask them if that type of work is covered by the warranty. If it isn't, you'll have to take it to a shop to have it diagnosed--the first step will be to scan the system to get the diagnostic codes, that is the reason the epc and check engine lights are on. Once a diagnosis is done, you can get an estimate on the repair.

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
