If only it were reliable
By chingpoongli on


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


19k miles and 21 months of ownership. So far ran into these problems ( all fixed under warranty):
parking brake failure.
Both rear door locks stopped working, doors would not unlock. Dealer replaced the switches.
Front passenger door wouldn't lock, I was in another town on vacation and had to leave the car knowing that the front passenger door was unlocked.
rear center seat belt jammed/locked. dealer replaced the whole mechanism.
Fuel pump failure on 8/1/11. an expense of about $8000, dealer replaced even though they said it was not covered under warranty.
fuel economy dropped to 28 recently.
steering wheel loosened a bit at the center.
pursuing mediation through BBB.

Worst Features

First and foremost reliability and dependability, everything else comes later. stop dumping half baked solutions in the name of cutting edge technologies.
