The Jetta 2002 Wagon is my first new
car that I bought. I really like it
(handling, gas consumption, design).
The only problem that I ran into is its
consumption of oil on my 2.0l engine.
The dealership tells me it is okay to
burn up to a quart every 1000miles. My
car burns about half of that. This
sounds more like these old two stroke
East German engines.
No new car should burn oil (after the
first 1000miles), this is ridiculous!
As a native German, I can't believe
that VW is telling this to its
customers here. After completing my
offical oil consumption test, I will
get the "1qt/1000miles" statement in
writing and call Wolfsburg!
Gas consumption (30mpg city/hwy
