2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
I had a 1987 VW Jetta and I had the worst experience with it. I thought after 2 decades VW finally got better. Oh boy I was wrong. The 1987 was made in Canada and Mexico, and when it needed repairs I had to buy German parts at very high price to repair the car. Same story with the 2007 model. It's made in Mexico and the workmanship is VERY POOR. Just within 2 months the car started to fall apart. This car is a mechanical nightmare. No wonder more and more people buy Toyota. Just after 1 month the master cylinder (for brakes) needed replacement. 4 days ago, the car overheated on the way to Vegas. I made a huge mistake to buy this car. What good is 6 airbags when it is always in repair shop?!!
Make an engine that is reliable. This car is not reliable at all. Parts cost too much. My next car is gonna be a Toyota for sure. Gas mileage is awfull. Car starts to make noise after few weeks, everything gets loose: Doors, windows, etc..
