I bought my 2022 Volkswagen Taos in November of 2021. Within 25 days of owning the car the EPC, rpm limited, and exhaust system malfunction lights came on. My car began to shake and would not accelerate. They could not diagnose the issue so they erased the codes, test drove it, and gave it back to me. Yesterday February 15th, this issue happened again when I left work. It is being towed to a dealership. Has anyone else had this issue?

I have this issue with my car and the part has not been released to the United States. Mine has been in the shop since 11/8/2021. It's the turbo accumulator. I was told DO NOT drive it.

WOW! That is a long time to go without your car. When those lights came on, did you car shake whenever you pressed on the gas?
Also if you turned it off and back on did this "fix" the issue?

I bought it in August and it only had 1,600 miles on it too. Luckily I was able to get a loaner a week after it was in the shop. However, the car just went into limp mode. It kept telling me the engine couldn't go over 4,000 RPMs then it quickly changed to not being able to go over 2,500 RPMs. I pulled over and turned the car off and back on, it fixed it for about 2 miles. Then I went to accelerate up a hill and it happened again. After that I milked it to work (was only 3 miles away) and called the dealership. It never went off afterwards so it was towed back to the dealership.

It's been hectic waiting for this part. I actually put in a claim to the volkswagen customer care stating I wanted my monthly payments returned for the length of not having my car. I just received an email today that they may want to buy back or replace my Taos. I was told by my dealership that it's not uncommon for VW to offer that. But they also told me that my part is on order still and may be here this week. Waiting to talk to my service writer tomorrow to verify for sure before I make any decisions since buying a car right now it's the best time.

I just received a call telling me the engine is misfiring but they do not know why. They erased the codes and test drove it and told it was fine for me to come and pick it up. At this point I might talk to an attorney because I do not feel safe driving this car.

I would get a second opinion at another dealership. It is bound to happen again. My dealership called it unsafe to drive with the EPC light on.

Just received my second opinion. He made very clear it was unsafe to drive. Thank you for the input to get a second opinion. I will be calling VW customer care tomorrow
