2011 Volkswagen Jetta SE PZEV 4dr Sedan w/Convenience (2.5L 5cyl 5M)
We purchased our Jetta off the lot, but I think we choose the wrong one.
We had issues right out of the gate.
Noticed that left side speakers did not work.
Took it back and discovered that when the dash was installed at the factory they smashed the wiring harness.
Second issue: clicking sound from driver's door trim.
That took over 4 months to get it diagnosed and corrected and to get window controller fixed because tech damaged it while fixing the trim.
Third issue: Had to have the manual transmission replaced at around 48k.
Interior seals failed.
I think this Jetta was made right before siesta time (made is Mexico). Tires side walls blew out around 35k
It is a fun car to drive
Better quality control and design at factory.
Needs a turbo.
Very sluggish acceleration.
