2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
I bought a 2006 VW Jetta TDi brand new. I am giving this review now that it has 130,000 miles on it.
Here's the scoop. At 85K miles the dual mass fly wheel broke. Cost me $1500 to fix. At 90K miles the A/C compressor went out, cost me $750 to fix. At 110K miles the copressor has gone out again. Guess why?
Cause the cooling fans under the hood went out! Guess what else? The relays are built into the fan so you have to buy the entire fan assembly.
This car is nothing but junk. It's been a total nighmare and I hope VW goes out of business very soon!
Next time I will buy something from Japan!
