Too many Issues, LEMON warning
By drew_106 on


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


Where to start? The first few weeks into the lease were great. Then the car started having a number of engine problems. The engine started hiccuping in the Spring of 2009. A week later the car was in the shop and the fuel pump had failed and needed to be replace at about 12,000 miles. More recently this past summer at 18,000 miles some connectors in the fuse box shorted out. This took 2 days in the shop for them to figure this out. Now I'm having different warning lights come on and off. The fuel cap warning light was of, then off. Today the tire pressure light is on, though the tires all look to be inflated properly. What next?!?

Best Features

Comfortable interior. Decent power.

Worst Features

Reliability is terrible. I'm glad of leasing. Can't wait to get rid of it. Gas Mileage isn't great either. 27 MPG Hwy for the MT. Needs to have a 6spd manual instead of the 5spd.
