Frustrated with VW
By Joe23456 on
Vehicle2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI have to be up front and admit that the Jetta Wagon is fun car to drive. Unfortunately we have been experiencing an excessive amount of mechanical problems. The car has been in and out of the shop for various repairs, which have been mostly covered under warranty. At 62,000 miles (well before the scheduled 80,000 mile service) the timing belt slipped which caused a bent valve and a $5500 repair bill. I would highly recommend that if you are considering a VW that you choose a different car company. If you decide to buy a VW trade it in before it comes out of warranty.
Best FeaturesFun to drive
Worst FeaturesMechanical reliability. The back seats are poorly designed both for comfort ability to fold flat for increased cargo space. The front seats must be moved forward to allow the rear seats to fold flat. The cup holders are an afterthought and not very functional.
