Planing to buy Volkswagen Jetta 2012? Watch the video
The LINKS below show the huge number of VW owners that affected by the issue:
UPDATE (July 9th 2012 ) : After contacting Volkswagen Germany and the local dealership, my car has been taken to the service four times to diagnose the flaw; still has not been fixed! Be aware of Volkswagen's Five-year Warranty that says you will get free parts and service for 5 years. I am warning as much people as I can so that they don't get ripped of by VW.
I will be posting more updates, emails and phone calls that I recorded.

Jetta Takes on Prius: Toyota Prius vs. VW Jetta TDI Diesel
MORE ON HYBRID VS. DIESEL @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We were locked in mortal combat, just as adrenaline-addled Leonidas and hubris-filled Xerxes met at the Battle of Thermopylae, when a relative handful of highly specialized Spartans held off a seemingly bottomless torque-pit of Persians for seven excruciating days.
Here we have the 2009 Toyota Prius gasoline-electric hybrid, embodying up-to-the-minute fuel-sipping methods and machinery intended to take us immaculately into a spotless future. In the other lane, the newly introduced 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI turbodiesel, a rolling relic of tried-and-true yester-tech locomotion (upon whose sooty breath the Industrial Revolution itself was built) that has been remastered, reengineered and reintroduced to be meaner, cleaner and more efficient than ever.
But the battle left us weary — done in by the struggle and tired of each other like Siamese twins on prom night.
VW Jetta TDi 2009 Over 50 MPG
So I'm on my way home from summer vacation and it's a 10-11 hour drive over two days. I decide to find out for absolute sure WHAT mpg this car can get. So after a few hours on the road I pull into a truck stop (I realize now that this time spent on the road in the beginning reduced the displayed avg. mpg for the trip), found a small nozzle pump and start to fill up with b5 diesel. The pump kicks off after a few gallons so, just to make sure, I top it off just once. I pull back on the interstate, hit zero congestion, and drive 116 miles at 60 - 65 mph. I then pull into the rest stop. I hit the men's room (priority 1!) then went for gas. At the pump I take it slow to try and minimize backwash. I do not try to top it off this time. What you see here are the results.

Jetta TDI vs Hybrid, 1 tank to San Francisco Challenge
Matthew Welch, GM of Auburn VW believes in his New Jetta TDI so much that he's accepted the challenge of pitting his car against the Toyota Prius for fuel economy supremacy. He and a film crew will fill the tanks of both a New Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius in Auburn Washington. They'll attempt to drive them both to San Francisco without stopping at a single gas station to fill up, all under the watchful eye of the film crew documenting everything. Which one will make the whole journey? Will either of them even make it?
