Thinking of buying a VW?
By atlantamark on


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


Well 700 characters is hard. here are excerpts: After years of owning Toyota’s and Honda’s I was ready to purchase a new car. Bought 2010 VW Tdi with 39,700 miles.
After purchase found out with the original owner, it was in for repairs (not maintenance) at the following mileages: 1916, 12258, 14062, 21409, 23772, 33602, 35413, 39361, 39426, 39554.
Note how soon after that last repair visit the previous owners sold it.
I now have 59k on it and has been in the shop 6 times in 11 months. nav/radio replaced, heating/cooling control panel replaced, broke down with engine issues, seat heater replaced, etc etc etc.,

Best Features

Great engine and driveability. Be prepared to spend some $$ on repairs. Don't exepct help from VW customer service. They do get great mileage and are fun to drive. just be sure you have the time and money to take it in for repairs constantly.

Worst Features

add more characters to this field so I can more accurately describe the issues and post a real review. Quality and reliability are far inferior to the Toyota, Honda and Fords I have owned. Customer service at VW will not stand behind their vehicles.
