Huge improvement over the Jetta III
The fancy remote key went bad 2 weeks after receiving the car. Dealer paid for towing and repair.
The most annoying thing is the fact that the front dealer plate was screwed straight through the bumper with self tapping screws. Now I am unable to remove my front plate as it looks ugly with two holes gouged in the bumper.
The front suspension developed an annoying squeak after 10,000 miles.
The rear right speaker face plate vibrates (loose).
The driver door creeks. On the last service, the dealer was not able to see to the above, but did reschedule another date.
Although I have had the above problems, they do seem to be minor, in general the car is a bargain at the price and the finish is up to German standards.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
