2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI from North America
Feels solid, but breaks like a cheap plastic toy
Brakes went out at 15,000 (rear)
Brakes went out at 30,000 (rear)
Mass flow meter went out at 34,000.
Glove box broke.
Arm rest broke.
This car feels solid, but it is nickle and diming me to death.
I don't trust it for long trips.
It is the plastic in the little things that break. They use a better quality of plastic in McDonald's Happy Meal toys.
I drove a Mazda for 130,000 mile and only changed the oil.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Myself and my cousin both have Jettas - mine is a 1999 and his is a 2000. In both of our vehicles, when the temperature outside drops into freezing, the mechanism for the glove box is too stiff causing the glove box to break when you open it. Is there a recall on this that anyone knows of? There HAS to be as there are too many glove boxes breaking for this to be a coincidence.
