2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS from North America
If you want to form an intimate relationship with the tow truck man, buy a Jetta!!
Transmission blew out.
Headlights burnt out.
Brake light recall.
I went in for an oil leak and left $811 poorer after all spark plugs were replaced, apparently oil was spewing all over the inside. And several minor adjustments the shop was a little vague on describing.
The second mechanic replaced my engine speed sensor for $270, after I was left stranded on the side of the highway.
The third mechanic, a week and a half later, is currently replacing the transmission, after my Jetta once again died.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I would have to disagree with the previous comments made. I own a 2000 VW Jetta 2.0L and the car runs just as good as when it was driven off the lot. I have a history or babying my cars. It's oil is changed religiously. It has had all its scheduled maintenace. It is however, a 5 speed manual transmission. I have heard about many problems with automatic transmissions since a family member works in a transmission shop. However, the only problem I have encountered was the loss of use of the power mirrors. That's it. I have been completely satisfied with the performance of the Jetta. The cost of the parts is another story. But hey, it's a German car. I guess it's a lot cheaper than a BMW or Mercedes, right?
