Volkswagen Stinks!!! Fooled me once.....
By Lacy on


2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


I've had brake problems for 3 years which Brakeway finally diagnosed and fixed. Then my tranny went out and it took over a month and $5k to fix. Now I got spots on my hood, roof, and trunk which was determined to be manuf. defect, but they won't deal with it because my warranty is out. The console is flimsy trash and my d. side door handle assembly came apart when I tried to close the door in the winter, but the latch assembly froze, on a German car! This is the first car I cannot work on myself. My fuel economy is around 30mph, though others are getting 40. I can truly say the dealer sold me a lemon that I still have to pay for. But, I'm not paying to paint

Best Features

Fully loaded leather interior with sun/ moon roof. Is quicker than reviews gave it.

Worst Features

Better customer care. Less expensive parts. Better diagnostics. My maintenance light never ceases to illuminate. Fix the road noise.I will not refer anyone else to buy a VW.
