Not Sure If I'll Get Another V-Dub
By Ed on

Vehicle

2006 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

First VW to own. 2006 manual GLI package w/leather, XM radio. Fun car to drive but already had problems with it and had it a year. Had 2 months before it started overheating - coolant hose connection problem that kept the fan running after I turned the ignition off, which was depleting the battery. Five months later, another problem with a hose that was making some heavy noise from the engine. Both were fixed by the dealer. Now all of the buttons are starting to peel off (plastic/rubber finish)!? Went to the dealer, have to come back when someone could pull out the radio, find the manufacturer, and order new radio. Dealer oil changes too $$. Took to private shop, told it was burning oil like crazy!

Favorite Features

Interior styling, color (red), paint job, steering wheel controls, satellite radio, sound. Lots of fun to drive, fun to manually shift.

Suggested Improvements

Less connection/electrical problems. Heavy wear on driver's side leather side, and I clean the leather about 3 times a month. Too much brake dust on the wheels. Didn't think there would be this much cost/service involved w/a foreign auto.
