2001 Volkswagen Jetta GT from North America
Look at a VW but don't buy it!!!
Almost everything inside the car is horribly (cheaply) made. Looks nice! but...
There is a lock on the driver side door that will turn off the ability to open the trunk from inside the car. Used this feature a few times, and then one day the entire lock came out along with my key. Not covered under warranty.
Pop out cup holders above radio made of cheap, unsteady plastic. One side broke off. Not covered under warranty. Over $200 to replace.
Rear cup holders also pop out.. or did once upon a time. No longer pop out.
Drivers headrest stopped working. Tall person drove the car once and pulled it up a bit. Took 3 men to push it back down to my height. Not covered under warranty.
Seals on sunroof, rear windshield, and front windshield all failed. At separate times. Water poured in from behind pedals as well as through the latch for opening hood (next to drivers door). Floorboards were drenched and car smelled of mold for a good time after. Entire panel to the left of steering wheel sopping wet on a few occasions. Even after "fixing" the seals, this has happened over and over again.
Latch for center console snapped off. Not covered under warranty.
At 60k wiring had to be replaced (over $1000) because water would get under the hood in rain, causing shorting and making the car run sluggish until driven for a few miles.
Looks nice, drives nice. Also has a decent sound system. But every little thing that could possibly go wrong, has.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
