Bought my jetta used. Ran great 4 a while then the problems started. 2 water pumps, 2 alternators, all round brakes once a year, hose harness broke causing oil to leak on fire wall, timing belt, lights blow out or short out until you tap them often, all 4 VW caps on wheels fell off. Bumper cover almost fell off, paint peeling on hood, front arm rest lid broke, stereo knobs fell off, radio comes on by itself sometimes causing battery to go dead when car is off and parked, moonroof has a mind of its own sometimes wont close for a few tries, steering wheel and dash trim is peeling. Need a new transmission and emission work which I cant afford so she will sit while I cont. To make pymts on her!
i loved the car when it ran good. liked everything. got great gas mileage, great pick up, great sound system and the car just fit me like a glove. plenty of space to fit 2 carseats in the back. loved the turbo. i really liked being able to open the windows from the outside w/the key when its hot out
Design the car not to fall apart! Cup holders in the back instead of an ashtray would be Nice too. Being able to check your own transmission fluid would be Nice too! Gotta take it to the shop so they charge you. Also front pass window leaks when it rains hard. Circle 2 pull oil dip stick broke off
