Not all Jettas are a lemon, just some are unlucky
Climate control light burnt out, but easy to fix.
Left headlight burnt out, easily fixed.
Air bag light on.
Hazard switch for blinkers was faulty, but was covered under a recall.
Drivers side lock has had a burp once, but continues to work fine.
So far for my car having 72,000 miles, I have no problems what so ever, other than average wear and tear. More satisfied people like me need to speak out because all the negative reviews are listed and it scares people into not buying them or automatically assuming their car is a piece of junk. Believe me, after reading the reviews it had made me nervous. My engine has mass power, it doesn't hesitate when you hit the gas, the doors sound secure when you shut them, gas mileage is great, seats are comfortable, drives smooth, well lit, steers and handles well. I can honestly say, I have had no problems with oil consumption, interior breaking, brake pads wearing out, electrical problems... nothing!! I would highly recommend buying a Jetta.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
