Could've been great
By Steph on


2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Purchased with approx 60 000 km and have since put 20k on the car. It has been in the shop about 9 times. Parts replaced: Turbo (3 separate visits); some clutch parts; throttle body (left me stranded); trunk latch; driver door electronics; coolant warning light issues. The dealership knows me by name. I think I got a lemon ... too bad because I like the car & have purchased a few aftermarket items for it (winter tires, roof rack, tail lights, floor mats worth about $2500). Good thing for warranty because repairs would've cost me a fortune. Will be trading it in for a new TDI soon.

Best Features

Sunroof, handling, heated seats, 1-touch turn signals ... but the best is the mileage. Asked dealership to turn off auto door lock.

Worst Features

Besides what I mentioned above: base stereo even with 10 speakers sucks, no rear cup holder, wipers have a weird cycle.
