Way OVER engineered
By tbsx on
2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)
I donít understand the great reviews considering so many characteristic problemsÖ youíll see.
Should the engine stall while in motion the key must cycle fully off to restart the auto. This LOCKS the steering while in motion.
With clutch depressed the engine wont rev above 2500 rpms. I have to pop the clutch several times when on a hill or stall engine. The traction control system engaged breaks on left side of car (I never touched the breaks) sending the car sideways. Lights come on when I donít want; they go off when I donít. Doors lock, unlock automatic.
the way it drives. This is the only real positive for this car
Turn signal stays on after I let go of lever. Way too much of this vehicle is making decisions FOR me. Generally speaking a wonderful auto to drive, but the annoying (AND DANGEROUS) features negate the positives. Iíve contacted VW of America each time about the dangerous aspects and they tell me, ďitís a feature, there's nothing to fix".
