Review

I purchased this car new with 12 miles on it. The car ran great for the 1st 3 years. My problem 1st started with an o2 sensor that was replaced in the 1st year of ownership-and my cup holder was replaced twice and the 3rd one broke but was not covered by the warranty. My glove box handle also broke off not to mention the arm rest broke. Then in '04 the j-joint snapped and caused the steering to fail. '05 I had to replace a cracked oil pan. Then in '08 the radiator blew ($500.00). Then the timing belt fell off, smashed the power steering pumu and wrapped around the tension arm ($750.00 w/o a new $350.00 tension arm) I've had 2 batteries, re-replaced the 02 sensor and today my car won't start.


Best Features

the design inside and out


Worst Features

I suggest VW take a look at Toyota's and Hondas. I could improve my car by driving it off a cliff. $2000.00 in repairs in less than a year on a 9 year old car??? They could really work on the interior tho', considering everything broke-including my electrical clock.

better cup holders. Sun glass holder.

Review

The Jetta I have driven for the last 9/10 years has been good to me overall. That said, I would not buy another Volkswagen the next time I purchase a car. It is a sharp looking vehicle, fun to drive, and very comfortable. My issues have mainly been with the quirkiness of mechanical instruments and engine parts. I think you could find a Japanese car for the same money and find better reliability. Common issues include replacing the following: Water pump (impeller is plastic on original and designed to fail; eventually the inside of it melted and had to be replaced. The catalytic converter needed replacing (warranty is 10yr/120K miles FYI). And various other check engine lights etc.


Best Features

Interior design, handling is great, instrument panels easy to read, trunk size, full size spare, backseat folds down.


Worst Features

Radio reception is awful FM and AM. Catalytic converter and water pump broke too soon. Door hinges are starting to loosen up. Automatic lock system does not function properly anymore. Trunk latch and hood latch are plastic and both needed replacing. Lots of light bulb changes throughout.
