2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


I love my car, or at least I did the day I bought it. I wish I had done a little more research on this make and model before I purchased. I am a young designer just out of school and this car has caused me to go into debt. It was uniformed decision and I have spent well over $7,000 in rapairs on this car. I thought it was a practical and smart choice, yet I have been proven wrong. VW did reimburse me for a mass air flow sensor that was replaced 3 times in a 3 month period. I have had less luck in trying to get a proper diagnosis and repair for my car at a dealership. It seems that they just cant figure out what the problem is, and I just cant seem to aford paying for parts I don't need

Best Features

Looks cute and has a great stereo system!

Worst Features

I would suggest more well equiped mechanics and a training seminar in customer service for the dealership Service Dept.
