With regards to the limp Jetta; a common and well-known problem is the mass
airflow sensor. If the engine pulls sort of OK on lower revs but less on
high revs, the MAF is shot. Our local dealer always have several of these in
stock since they crap out all the time. Some are claiming they have
aftermarket sensors that last longer, but I haven't tried these.

Been there - done that - mine was shot when I got the A6 at around 100.000
kms. Replaced with another original Bosch. USD 500. Ouch.
