2005 Volkswagen Jetta New TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)
Buy another car. Within the first 11 days of owning my New Jetta: 1. The drivers side light cover fell off. 2. The outside temperature sensor failed. 3. The drivers side door rattles 4. The center console cover rattles. A month later I am happy to report that my car has been back to the dealer twice and nothing is fixed. In fact the service manager called me to let me know that the temperature sensor has arrived; but Volkswagen has instructed the dealer that they can not install this part and that they must return the part and wait for another one. Nobody can tell me when my car will be fixed.
Fun to drive, when car parts are not falling off, rattling, and working properly.
For Volkswagen - Build a quality product. For Consumers - Purchase another car.
