I'm sorry others have had so much
frustration with their Jettas. I had a bunch of
things go wrong in the first 6 months, but
they were all fixed under warranty, so I don't
really mind. Nothing has broken twice and
nothing has broken out of warranty (36,000
miles in the first year). This dealer and
service department are top-notch. I drive an
hour for service -- even for oil changes! They
are as cheap as Jiffy-lube, and they know it's
a VW, not a "Volvo" like JL tried to tell me.
Fun to drive, great performace. I have the GL
with more "standard" features than you can
get for $4000 more in a Civic. High build
quality, reminiscent of a BMW 3 series.
