Hi! Sometimes mechanic jargon can be confusing. A VW EPC light misfire means that the Electronic Power Control warning light indicated that there was a problem with your vehicle. The Volkswagen EPC lights up when there is an issue with the throttle system, including the throttle body, accelerator pedal, cruise control, or traction control. In your case, it sounds like your Volkswagen’s engine may be misfiring. Any problem with your engine is serious and should be looked at right away, but it seems that you’re already having it taken care of! While your car is being repaired, why not take a look at your auto insurance policy? It’s a good to idea to review it on occasion and make sure you still have the appropriate coverages.
