Pretty shoddy. Lots of problems. Dealers don't care.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen SE 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


So, I've had my wagon for about 32 months and I've given up. I've had multiple problems with the suspension, the alloy wheels break from even the most minor potholes. I've replaced something like 7 wheels at this point and finally started buying steel wheels. Those haven't had any problems. The dealers are hideously overpriced and don't seem to care about any of the problems I've had. They just want me to keep coming back and spending more money when something breaks. After another $600 bill for a small pothole I've given in. I'm waiting for Kia to get their 2012 models in and as soon as they do the Jetta's gone. I got 120k miles out of my last car (Honda), but only 45k out of this junk heap

Best Features

It does hold a lot

Worst Features

Improve build quality. Bring parts prices into the realm of reasonability. Train your dealers not to gouge.
