"...Not worth it."

2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)

Review

What ever happened to German engineering? This VW Jetta fell apart at 200 K. With a car payment still on the vehicle, I've had to abandon it, a worthless husk.

Mechanics I've consulted since have also spontaneously offered their contempt of this vehicle.

It's not just that the time chain needed repairs as the kilometers go on. It's the whole spread of sudden, systemic mechanical failures -- The waterpump, fans, electrical system, bearings.... I was told at the dealership in a whisper from the guy at the counter: "Don't do what we're recommending. It's not worth it."

Hence the title.

Being a budget minded guy, I'd usually be upset by this. I guess I am. Life's too short. Buy a Focus.

Best Features

leather seats, the look.

Worst Features

ridiculous amounts of things require special "dealership only" service. Get the stupid "security" key lug off the tires asap. MANY times the manual tells owners not to try a simple repair themselves, but "only a trained service professional..." Crap!
