2004 Volkswagen Jetta
I am switching to Nissan as soon as I can
The car seat heaters were recalled.
The back door lock has broken twice.
The clutch blew (the cylinder was leaking) at 40,000km.
The car is now at 51,000 km and it's in the shop with many problems. These current problems include:
The brake lights won't go out even when the car is turned off.
The gas pedal does not get stuck itself, but the car will stop accelerating without me removing my foot every time I hit 20km/hr, 40km/hr, 60km/hr, and 80km/hr - the dealership has been unable to replicate this problem.
The clutch grinds when I put it into 2nd gear - this has been happening for some time now.
It sometimes takes awhile to get my car to go into reverse (manual transmission).
The dealership is currently looking at it to determine whether it is a warranty or "customer pay" situation. Considering I am leasing this car and it is supposed to be under warranty for 4 years (or 80,000km), I am a little upset about this. Obviously, I am hoping that they will determine it is a warranty situation.
On the good side, the people at the dealership are very friendly and have been empathetic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
