2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I have had this car for less than a year, 2 weeks after purchase had to replace (2) O2 sensors, 1 MAF, and car ran good for about 1 month, check engine light AGAIN and EPC light cont. to go on and off, car lags and almost stalls, engine revs up and down. back in shop, 1700 dollars for a TPS sensor, and throttle adaptation,Thermastat sensor. 2 days later, car overheated, back into VW, this time the water pump went bad, another 300 dollars. not to mention 4 recalls fixed. 4 weeks later engine light on again, car stalls, wont hold idle, transmission shifts rough and jerks. machine pulled bad Valve on engine, did i mention my jetta only has 62,000 miles! 3 weeks in the shop, still no fix.

Best Features

sound system, leather seats

Worst Features

where do i even start, this car has major issues, to many to name, not to mention since i have owned this car less then a year, they have issued 6 recalls. none of which will fix my car. bad computer system, VW really needs to step up and take responsibility, this is unacceptable. Next time HONDA
