NHTSA has two listing for this - Golf GTI 4door and GTI. Yeah, both together total about 20 complaints to date.Somewhat odd. The NHTSA complaints are actually 20 though. 15 are listed under the GTI, but an additional 5 (that are GTIs, just filed over Golf) are under the 2019 Golf model. So 20 total so far. Most are from the GolfMK7 and Reddit posts on the stalling problem.
Interesting.I had this issue, they scanned my car and saw it was partially still in transport mode. They put it back into transport mode and then removed it. I have not stalled since and it happened 8 times in 6 days of taking delivery which was ~300 miles and I am just shy of 1200 now. I opened a ticket with VW so it was documented.

Granted, this is my son's new car, thought I'd share with my VWVortex brothers as I had experienced the problem firsthand....I am coming from 30 years of driving manual cars and years of 2001 A4 ownership and modding, 2013 GTI, 2002 911 turbo and 2016 Cayman GTS - I know German cars and manual transmissions.
My sons is a 2019 GTI S, manual.Is this stalling only happening to Rabbit with manual transmission?
What is the difference between the GTI and Rabbit that only the Rabbit
I have a GTI S and never stalls, but it is a DSG.
Nope - end of the day...their techs are the experts - I'm not going to play doctor for them, now that we are close to a buyback.Two members on GolfMK7 had their intake camshafts replaced entirely. Did you ever approach the dealership about that or hear them ask about going that route?
Yup - that is how it feels. It is as if the vehicle has auto start/stop - but these cars do not.Ha. I just picked up my 6MT Rabbit on Tuesday and driving home yesterday, stopped at the lights and then realized the car was off. no jolt or anything, just very quiet, off. I was so sure I depressed the clutch completely (always had manual vehicles) and I just put it down to a new car.. although my 2015 GTi was obviously similar in driving position, etc.
*edit* - i'll check for the Transport mode setting tonight, see what mine says.
