The car was running perfecty but suddenly died on me - on a freeway in Mexico City of all places. The lights were working but when I tried to restart the engine by turning the key - complete silence and car would not start. Called for a tow truck and while waiting got out of the car to put down the emergency reflectors to warn other drivers - taking the key out of the ignition to open the trunk. After about 30 minutes tow truck had not arrived so decided to try again. The car started perfectly. I drove it to the VW dealership and they cannot find anything wrong with the car - the scanner does not give them any error codes. Told them I was afraid to drive the car so they kept it for a few days to continue to "check" it. Any idea why an 18 month old car with 8000 miles on it would suddenly die while driving? Thanks!
