When I first got my Jetta, I absolutely loved it. it handled well, accelerated quickly, and was a smooth ride. But I had problems right away. The transmission didn't shift smoothly. My car still jerks and lurches when shifting gears (although the 8 times I took it in, the mechanics never experienced anything). The electrical has had issues too. My windows roll down when I pull the button to roll the window up. My engine light has been on for the last year (although I've taken it in 4 times. It goes off for a few days and then comes back on.) I love my Jetta, I just don't love all the repairs it needs.
I love the dashboard colors.
Electrical and lights. The brake lights always go out. And fix the transmission!
