2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
About six months after I bought my car (my first car ever), the splash shield separated from the bumper and crumbled into a million pieces on the freeway. I took it to the dealer, and they said that my insurance should pay for it and that this happens all of the time because the European make of the car causes it to catch on US parking curbs. I went to my insurance agent and they said they weren't going to pay for it, because it wasn't due to an accident. I had to pay $1800 in repairs out of my own pocket. I have since had problems with my driver's side door, and my brakes almost didn't stop my car on a hill. Expect to apply a large amount of pressure on your brakes to stop at high speeds!
