Honk If You Want to Stop Your Jetta

2011 Jetta
ChicagoBreakingBusiness.com

This sounds like a bad April Fools joke, but it’s not.

If you have a 2011 Jetta and you honk your horn, there’s a chance your car will just turn off. I assume they didn’t discover this around the Magic Valley. I don’t know if you ever noticed this, but NO ONE ever honks their horns around here!

Any who, ChicagoBreakingBusiness.com is reporting that

Under certain rare circumstances using the horn could cause a short circuit that would, in turn, cause an electronic part called a converter box to disconnect from the car’s power supply, a VW spokeswoman said.

So far, VW is not aware of any accidents this has caused, but if you own one here’s some info for you:

The recall affects Jettas built between March 2010 and March 2011. Customers with questions or concerns should contact Volkswagen Customer Care at 800-822-8987, the automaker said.

This reminds me of the old KEZJ Fun bus.  It was a piece, for sure.  It would honk (continuously) when you pulled the steering wheel to the left.  NOT fun at unprotected intersections.
