2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8 turbo from North America
I can't recommend this car.
Lets skip to the chase:
My mass air flow sensor failed on the way to the beach.
My glove box broke, the cost to fix was 250 dollars parts and labor.
Rubber coating on door handles coming off, also ash tray covers broke.
Turbo sensor and turbo hose problems, we paid the dealer to fix.
Gas gauge comes and goes, my wife has to use the tripmeter to be safe, for example, the gas gauge said she had a half tank full, when she filled up it took over 10 gallons of gas.
A/C comes and goes, took to the dealer and they could not find the problem, even though it stopped working on them too.
The car stalls for no reason, this is the most disturbing problem to date because it's a safety issue.
I will be selling this car soon. I also feel it is to unsafe for my wife to drive, especially after reading all these other complaints. If this car is in a wreck, how do we know the air bags will deploy properly? Good luck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
