2002 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8 turbo
Lemon for sale
My driver's window fell into the door. Two weeks later, the passenger window fell into the door.
Replaced O2 sensors @ 12000, 30000, 70000, 140000 kms.
Coil ignition packs replaced 9 times, 6 this year alone after learning of the factory recall. The dealer does not seem to want to deal with this issue, and will no longer cover replacement.
This car always received regular maintenance and was well cared for. What was once my dream car ended up being my worst nightmare. It's easy to overlook some of the minor issues, but the coil pack problem and the fact that VW let us Jetta owners hang out to dry without rectifying the issue, ensures that myself, nor any family member or friend will ever purchase a VW product again. Shame on you Volkswagen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
