We'd hoped to have the Jetta for many
years -- it was fun to drive, got good
mileage, and was well-designed. But
three months after getting it, the
electric system failed. Scrape the
front bumper on the curb and it would
come off. That happened four times.
Sensors went out. Parts failed. All
this despite regular service and care.
Finally, something got loose around the
catalytic converter. We said that's it.
Just got a new Subaru Forester. I hope
it lasts as long as we'd HOPED the VW
would. VW, you should be ashamed.
Fun to drive, good-looking dials on the
dash, nice exterior design, zippy.
Learn how to make a reliable,
trustworthy car. Besides everything we
had to have fixed, I think it was
recalled twice. We're never even
CONSIDERING VW for any future cars.
