2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I have a love hate relationship with my car. When its running, I love it the feel of the wheel and the way it handles the road. Unfortunately I didn't know of the known electrical problems until they started happening to me. From the first month of ownership this car has made repeated visits to the dealership. The electrical sleeve had to be replaced on the driver side because the wires broke, are they kidding? I had the ignition replaced, tires 2x, brakes... electrical components and more electrical components... Poor paint, it blisters in the summer and it wears off.
Love the way it handles, love the trunk. I love the car, I just wish it would run and be reliable.
VW knows it has a problem with this car but will not back it up. I'll be selling it, I can't afford the high cost of maintaining this vehicle.
