2006 Volkswagen Jetta Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I have to say that I overall that my jetta is a decent vehicle, but I have had some annoying issues with the electrical system.
First off while it was still under warranty the airbag sensor came on. The dealer told me that a broken spring between the airbag and steering wheel was the issue was the reason that the airbag light came on.
Well, a year later after the warranty had expired the airbag light came on again... a $500 fix... Now, prior to this headache, I did cause a minor rearend accident which caused the plastic grill inserts to come loose, but it was not serious enough to cause the airbag to deploy. Second, the headlights and tailights burnout randomly..

Best Features

The car is very easy to drive and quite comfortable on the highway at any speed.

Worst Features

VW needs to recall the drivers steering wheel airbag system. I don't believe that someone should have to pay out of pocket for a serious safety issue like this, since this is a reacurring problem. Listen up VW!!
