2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 2.8 from North America
An overpriced pain in the butt!
One week after purchasing my Jetta (car of my dreams) the Engine light came on. By the time the dealership could get me in, the light was off. A week later, same problem. They told me that my I had to click the gas cap 3 times to secure the pressure, failing to do so was setting off the light. Every 6 days or so the light comes on STILL! I tried to take it to Jiffy Lube as well as numerous other lube shops and NO ONE will change my oil. So rather than paying $15 for an oil change, I have to take it to VW and pay $42.98! Now today my EPC light came on in the McDonalds drive through and of course VW can't get me in until next week. Too bad I have a 300 mile business trip to drive this week!! I always wanted a Jetta, but now I miss my 95 crappy Cavalier!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I currently own a GLX and couldn't be happier. It is very unfortunate that you see your problems with the car to be a pain. There isn't a car out there that you can buy that is worry free!! I think your complaint is very minor and I think you should look at how well the car is built compared to others in it's price range. I have driven a few different BMW's and would have to say that the VW is a very well built car in comparison. If you think you can buy any other car and not have a problem, then you are pretty naive.
