2001 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 1.8 turbo from North America
Super fun to drive, expect to have it in the shop a lot!
Heated seat died after 5000 km.
Clutch pedal leaked lube within the cab at 6000 km.
Numerous lights both interior and exterior have died.
Water pump died after 69,000 km. Timing belt replaced as well.
Wind shield wiper motor died at 69,500 km.
From day one, I bought this car because it looks good and drives incredibly. However I am always waiting in the back of my mind for something to go wrong.
I have no confidence in the quality of this vehicle.
The decision to no longer purchase VW was easier as the company's latest generation design is horrific. Unfortunately BMW also went down the same route of terrible design.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
