Expensive to fix, lots of issues with Jettas, and I don't recommend them to anyone!
Let's see, I bought this car from a private seller in July of 2008 with 96000 miles on it.
A couple days after buying it, we started to notice that when the car was in drive, but we're stopped at a light or something, the car pulses. We have taken it in to VW dealerships to have them look it over, and they always find nothing is wrong.
About two weeks after buying the car, our trunk latch broke, and took that in to get replaced.
Four months after purchasing it, the car was shifting funny, so we took it in again and they told us the spark plugs and wires were bad. But only a year later (current date) we were having the same problem again. We once again took it in, and the spark plugs and wires were bad once again. So we replaced them, but the car is still acting up. When you put it into drive and start to take off, the car shifts very roughly. Not only that, but when you put it on cruise control, it speeds up and pulses really bad, randomly.
Something is wrong with our car, other than spark plugs and wires, but every time we take it to a shop, they tell us nothing is wrong, but have failed to even take it on a test drive.
This car is very frustrating, and we still have no answers on these problems. If you can give us any information, or if you have the same problems, please help me. I can't afford to keep taking it in to have them tell me nothing is wrong, when there clearly is!
This car is so cute and rides amazing.
It blocks out sounds so good, and is great in that aspect.
But maintenance and overall dependability is HORRIBLE!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
