2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I've had this car for about 8 years now. I'm not really a car enthusiast, just need something to
comfortably take me from point a to point b without any issues. It does exactly what I need it to do most of the time. The only thing is that unexpectedly random things will go wrong with it. In the past 8 years, power steering broke, oil leaked, trunk door got stuck, and my favorite, the ignition lock(?) broke so that my key would not go in the ignition.
Very costly to get these issues fixed, on top of high regular maintenance costs. Replacing the ignition lock cost $700 + towing expenses.
