Review

I owned a 5 speed 2000 Jetta for about 7 years, bought it used with 4,000 miles on it. Overall I was really satisfied; never had any major malfunction and never got a Check Engine light on. Drove it for about 50,000 miles. I actually bought another one but automatic when I passed this on to my wife. Same good experience overall. However, did experience the issues with the locks and windows. Very hard to diagnose and repair. Fortunately got guidance on how to repair them by myself in a VW forum and fixed them all, but was hard nonetheless. It appears to be that after reaching the 8 yrs threshold, soldering joints in the electronics start to fail.

This vehicle has been most reliable however we have been experiencing water leakages associated with the radiator resulting in the need for the gasket to be changed. I would like to sell same and need to have an idea of the cost. Vehicle was involved previously in an accident.

Review

I do love my Jetta, but it's got it's annoying quirks. First the CEL pops on for just about anything, especially with the AC in use. The front end makes loud thudding noises which no one can seem to cure. Lousy cup holder and cheap (and expensive) plastic interior parts. But the engine is still solid at 185,000 mi and it's a lot of fun to drive. Has also been very reliable without any major breakdowns other than a water pump, starter, and brakes. Given the age and miles it's expected. These cars are timelessly stylish, handle well, get great mileage (31MPG!), and can stand the test of time and distance as long as they are taken care of properly. It's overall a good quality car.

I love this little car! I bought it from a private individual on Craig's List. Paid $5,700, but then it needed about $1,400 of repairs! But I think it just needed some TLC, and now I absolutely love the car. I like the design, and how smooth it handles in city driving as well as on the freeway. Pretty, sporty, LOVE the sunroof. Easy to park and bop around town!

Review of VW Jetta

Review

Bought car upon college grad drove it four years. Scotchguard did not prevent staining of water spill on passenger seat or fading from sunlight. Timing belt problematic from beginning, don't expect good or adequate service from Kingston VW. Went in five times before they actually agreed to fix it. Brakes replaced twice in four years, check engine light was on most of the four years due to faulty O2 sensor that was never fixed properly. Space is deceiving- not much room in backseat, trunk is big but opening too small to fit items. Revs too high (when in 5th on the highway, sounds like it's in 3rd). Once ownership ended (returned vehicle) all communication from VW ended as well(no follow-up).

Review

This car is fun and sporty, I just bought it 2 days ago and its been good. I bought it with 97,XXX miles. I don't have any check engine lights so far and no catalytic converter issues yet. My issues with the car are the cheap interior parts. The cup holder can only support the weight of one really small cup without breaking off (mine was broke at purchase) and I see why! The arm rest, glove box, door panels, floor vent (passenger side), the seatbelt covers on the floor, ash tray, etc. all cracked or broken. That's what you get when you have a awesome German car with the interior parts made in Mexico. As to the rest of the car, very nice quality! At 100K mi, not worth more than $5000.00

What is wrong with the Germans?

Review

I bought this car hoping for a step up in performance from the Hondas I was used to driving, I'm now trading it in for a Honda. The engine is powerful but that comes with the cost of a miserable 19-20 mpg, costing me almost $50 a week thanks to it requiring premium. The headlights are fine until you turn on the high beams and notice that they are dimmer than the low beams, the DBW gas pedal makes the car difficult to drive smoothly for anyone driving for the first time, it leaks coolant, the timing chain makes noise and needs to be replaced, the transmission slips and makes noise, the list goes on. On top of it all it's next to impossible to find info on how to maintain the car yourself.

Wish I had done more research

Review

I wish that I had done more investigating when buying my car. I bought my car with less that 5k miles on it, and in the 4 years I've owned it, I have had the same problems as everyone else. I had to replace the Mass Air Flow sensor; the sensor in my driver side door failed, causing the car to always think it was open; the glove box drawer is broken; and now the driver and passenger power windows are dying. It took $1000 to figure out the MAF sensor, and I became a regular at the car shop. VW has yet to acknowledge any of these issues. I hope to sell it (be rid of it) before anything else dies. This is just a poor quality car.

nightmare in the form of a car

Review

This car is very unreliable. It's one bad thing after another. First, maintenance. Once one thing falls off, something else will, like an endless cycle. (i.e. plastic paneling,glove box handle, cup holder, and even door cover). then, the light indicators on my dashboard always pop up. like for the airbags, brake switch, and even the wind shield fluid. The epc light comes on constantly, and locks the car in park for hours, even days. It gets really really bad gas mileage. You can only drive about 200 miles until you need to fill up again. I think this car was put together with Elmer's glue and chewing gum. not even sturdy enough to consider super glue. Don't waste your money and life.

00 Jetta

Review

I have had my Jetta for a little over four years now, and have been fairly satisfied with the car. The 2.0 engine is pretty weak and goes through more gas than I expected. I believe VW has made a huge improvement in both of these areas in recent years. The car handles pretty well, but it doesn't take long various rattles and noises to present themselves after use on rough Midwest roads.
