2009 Volkswagen Tiguan - Codes

Good Afternoon,

My Volkswagen Tiguan’s is giving me a code P0299. I am noticing that I indeed am experiencing a loss of power. Do you think that my turbocharger needs to be replaced? Also where is your shop?

Thanks

Not sure who you think you are contacting . If it is the Brothers from the now expired for years Car Talk show they no longer have the shop. So you need to look at the local rating sites where ever you are and talk to relatives and coworkers for recommendations for a repair shop.

Not necessarily. There is a long list of reasons for this code. Some cheap, some expensive. My shop is in Florida but I don’t work on other people’s cars.
