2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
This car was great for the first 2 years of ownership. Throughout the third year, I have had nothing but problems: 2 oil leaks, 1 coolent leak, brakes had to be replaced, and I have had to have the ignition rebuilt twice. Luckily it is still under warranty but this car has turned into more of a hassle than an enjoyment.
Performs well in snow, decent gas mileage
Make the a/c so that it can blow on feet and face at the same time, redesign the ignition switch so it doesn't have to constantly be replaced, fix the wipers so they don't wipe 30 seconds after cleaning the windshield...it only makes it worse.
