2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)
I loved my Jetta VR6. When purchased I made sure it had all the bells and whistles...I was in love. It didn't take long for it to start letting me down.. AC went out- Heated seats went out- water pump went out- windows rattled until a piece finally broke. Last week I was told the transmission was leaking which was the culprit of the engine light coming on over and over. In a nutshell I loved this car. It was so much fun to drive and design was great... I was forced in to parting with it because mechanically it began giving way far too early. I had regular maintenance and it didn't help prevent problems. I would never buy another Jetta or any VW for that matter. Gone back to Honda, like home!
Feels great to drive. Dash lights are the coolest! Heated electric seats were so comfortable.
Overall the Jetta gives out mechanically... water pump, transmission, alternater - not to mention the extras that went out... A/C - electric windows...heather seats
