Buying this Jetta was a big mistake!!
By mark_louis on
1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)
It seamed like a nice car at first.. I
bought it used with 34kmi here's what
it cost me in the last 5kmi. Broken
glove box hinge $300. MAP sensor
problem $350. Ignition coil $690. I
still have transmission shift problems,
a water leak on the drivers door and a
trunk light that doesn't work.
I called VW to complain, they told me
that as a policy they do not assist
with "second owners".
When I said that I would like to write
a letter to VW management the customer
care representative told me that any
complaint letter would "never make it
to the addressee". How's that for
customer care!I cut my losses and
traded this lemon (at a loss).
