I own a 2001 VW Jetta VR6 5 speed. Used to be a great car.
I Received the recall information for the brake light switch. Took it to the dealer to have it fixed, also had the 80,000 mile tune-up done while there. When picking up the car noticed that the interior dome light switch had been broken while in the dealership. Dealership refused to fix it, said it was broken before car brought in. Ever since having recall work done, I've had nothing, but electrical problems with the car. Interior lights work sometimes. Stereo speakers and cd player only work sometimes. Electric seats don't work most of the time. Now there's another recall for the same part, I'm afraid to take it back in.
Now the check engine light has come on, and blinks intermittently. I had the code read, says it's a misfire in cylinder 6. Had wires and plugs changed, car running worse than before.
My car also smelled like crayons. Just thought there was a crayon lost in the car somewhere. I've had many people tell me that they know someone that has a Jetta and it too smells like crayons. But to my surprise I did find a piece of broken crayon tucked into the rear, driver side seat. And I mean tucked, I had to pull apart the seat back to find it wedged in the foam cushion. After removing the crayon, no more crayon smell.
