2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLX 2.8L VR6 from North America
Fun car, just bring your checkbook
Constant Air Bag issues while the car was in warranty. Thankfully, it now seems to be fixed.
Glove box latch broke.
Center console latch broke.
Cabin light no longer works when front doors are opened. Will work when rear doors are opened. Hard to drive this way.
Mass air filter.
Some other filter that cost about $350 to replace. I've gotten lost in all the filters!
Brakes light have burned out twice.
I absolutely love driving this car. It is super screaming fast and handles very well. The car is small, but packs a great deal of spunk.
I have just been getting more and more frustrated with all the repairs. People are critical of American cars sometimes, but I never had the problems with any those that I have had with this.
The 2 year/24K warranty is a joke. I guess that is the first tip when a company won't stand behind their car. Although their technicians frequently stand under my hood.
I owned a 1997 GLX before this one. I absolutely loved that car as well, but little things kept going wrong with it too. I bought the new one expecting it to be better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
