2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 from North America
Fun to drive, but the electronics and the cheap plastic make it a nightmare
-Temperature gauge needed replacement.
-Fuel sensor needed replacement.
-The lights would not turn off when I turned off the car. This happened before VW recalled the cars for this malfunction.
-The dashboard lights for the fan system inside the car will not work anymore.
-Cup holder is broken-very badly designed.
-Arm rest latch broken.
-Driver's side window fell into the door and I am using tape to hold up the window.
-One of the 2 plastic latch arms of the glove compartment snapped and the glove compartment loosely hangs on the remaining latch when I open it.
-The check sensor light just turned on at 81,000 miles and will not turn off. I hate having to pay over $80 just to get it looked at.
-The rear trash/coin box will not shut. They need to learn from the Japanese and the Koreans.
-The engine makes the sound of someone trying to turn on the car when it's already on, when I turn on my car for the first time, occasionally. This is unnerving.
-As fun as the 2000 Jetta VR6 is to drive, it's a piece of trash. I'm sticking with a Japanese car for my next purchase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
