Worst Car I've ever owned
By Ashley2008 on


2008 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


This has to be the worst car I've ever owned, it makes my 1999 Dodge Neon look good. I now have 14k on this car, at 4k I started having problems with the DSG Transmission banging into gears and slipping. After several repair attempts including replace a $3k Mechatronics unit, the car is back in the shop! This time been there 4 days and they don't know whats wrong with it but it still keep banging into gears progressively getting worse. Trim pieces in the interior randomly fall off and heater mirror cracked.

Best Features

Sunroof dial, that you can change the openings.

Worst Features

Fuel economy is bad, transmission is awful, seats are uncomfortable on long road trips, and car interior falls apart from bumps in the road.
