2000 Volkswagen Jetta VR6 6 cylinder from North America
Fair to poor based on cost
Numerous Check Engine lights
Interior paint is chipping
Sun Roof will not open.
Pretty much the same as everyone else above and the cost of repairs is very high.
One problem that has been repeated 3 times is the trunk lock. Replaced 2 times and doing this myself cost around $80 for parts. Basically, VW decided to design an electronic mechanism that uses a metal piece pressing against a plastic piece. You guessed right, the plastic piece continues to break and VW says that this is not covered even though I purchased this part from VW...twice.
Love the design and feel of the car, but I would never buy VW again. Purchased car based on quality and what I thought was a solid well made car. All VW needs to do is fix the flaws that are consistantly being reported and I'm sure their parts department could run a report on the most purchased parts over time. They would probably see "Glove box... we don't sell gloves... next item..."
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
