Many problems too fast
By jettasnotrok on


2008 Volkswagen Jetta S PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


Bought a new jetta it seemed to offer good fuel economy and it does. I drive from Michigan to Florida a lot so it seemed like a good car to drive on the e-way with its good fuel economy. Well a week later after returning from Florida the car had 3,000 miles on it and the starter broke. Dealer fixed it free. The tires don't hold air (maybe there is a hole) so I replaced the tire that I filled up every week. But the check tire light was still on. Took it to the dealer and it was broken. When I go to start the car in the morning it revs up to 7,000 rpm for no reason and the slowly will settle back down. After the fuel injector went bad I sold the car with 17,000.

Best Features

The 6 disk cd changer.

Worst Features

Make the car last more than 3,000 miles before something breaks. Oh, and its a magnet to get hit in the parking lot 4 times that happened.
