Last week my EPC light came on and then went off later that day. This morning my check engine light started flashing and the car was shaking like when you go over rumble strips. I also smelled something burning. I was less than a mile from home so I went home and parked it. Any idea what would cause that? The nearest VW dealer is 250 miles away. But there is a shop that does work on imports. It's got 42k miles so the initial warranty is expired. Should I have the local shop take an initial look or could it fall under the powertrain warranty and have it towed to the VW dealer? I already miss driving my car.
