German is not always quality
By Former Jetta Driver on
2006 Volkswagen Jetta Value Edition PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
I bought this car brand new and after 5 years put 60000 miles on it. Service intervals cost an arm and leg. Quality is terrible. Car was cupping tires, the electrical in left door failed, lights burn out randomly, paint peeling of interior buttons and radio. Speakers stopped working. Do not buy VW, this is not the same German car it used to be years back. It is the biggest piece of junk. The dealer always makes excuses when there is a problem and blames it on wear and tear or customer fault. This car was terrible. It only had 57000 when I traded it in to get rid the junk.
Fuel economy is not bad. 5 speed is fun to drive. Ride feels solid until the whole car starts to fall apart.
VW needs to improve the quality of electrical components or stop putting complicated gadgets into the car that they cannot produce so they last.
