Frustrating first buy
I have had the control sensor moduel replaced.
A new secondary fuel pump put in.
A new fuel filter put in.
Spark plugs replaced.
New bushing put in.
The electronic switch in the door replaced.
Total front end alignment.
All in a time span of 2 months since I've had this car.
I bought my 1998 New Jetta on 2/17/03 and it hasn't gone a full week with out being in the shop for service. Thank goodness I got a 4 yr./100,000 warranty when I purchased the vehicle, or I would be spending a lot of money on this car.
We have slowly eliminated the problems, but some of them seem to keep on coming back. The loose, rattling feeling under the drivers side pedals underneath the car and the check engine light coming on around 25-30 miles after it has been scanned and the computer cleared are two problems that have stumped even the service people.
From the outside this is a really cool are, and if it wasn't for these problems it would be awesome, I just wish I could find the solutions to these problems before I look at our states lemon law!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
