6 Months with '10 Jetta TDI
By tdidriver1 on


2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


First, the good:
the car is very fun to drive, the interior compares with much higher priced cars and the fuel economy is good.
The, bad:
two "campaigns" within 6 months, oil leak, sway bar (common problem I've read) and lower control arm bushings (common problem I've read) all replaced.
Now, it's leaking diesel after 18,500 miles and just about six months.
There is a problem with some of the high pressure fuel pumps failing.
Hopefully, this is not a precursor of the failure for me.
I loved the car at first, but service at the dealers is poor and VW customer service is less than helpful. Be forewarned about the high pressure fuel pump failure and poor service from dealers

Best Features

Fun to drive; good fuel economy; quality of interior; sporty suspension

Worst Features

Reliability; better service at dealers (it takes 1 - 2 weeks to get an appointment and they always seem to have to keep your car for a part order) Address the high pressure fuel pump failure that could result in upwards of $10,000 in repairs. I have read VW and dealers sometimes blame it on "bad fuel." Probably not the case, in my opinion. NHTSA is investigating.
