2005 Volkswagen Jetta New 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
My 2005 Jetta has 87000 miles, is serviced regularly, but now I have to get a new car. The timing chain, gears, spark plugs, and coil pack supposedly all went out last week and to fix it would be $3700 according to the dealership. While I have loved the design and the drive, it just isn't worth it. The worst part is they only offered me $1500 for a trade in. Why would I want another VW if that is all they think it is worth? I'll be getting a Toyota this weekend.
Heated seats, can switch to manual driving, fun to drive
Need more people that can fix VWs other than the dealership. They overcharge. $67 for an oil change!?!
I TOO AM VERY DISSAPOINTED!!!! I purchased a 2005 Jetta with 68k miles on it and suffered a catastrophic engine failure similar to yours. What a piece of junk!!!!!! I will never buy another VW. I own a BMW and I guess I was hoping that some of that quality had rubbed off somehow. Boy was I WRONG! Never, never, never, never, never again........................................
