2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 from North America
I would not recommend buying a GLX VR6 Jetta, it's a waste of money
After first buying the car, my transmission went. $3,000.00.
My driver side window would not go up after putting it down, had to have it replaced. They said the clip had broken.
My radiator was bad. $600.00.
I had to have my coolant line redone at the dealership, then a week after they were suppose to have replaced it, my engine blew up so I had to replace my engine. $690.00 Coolant line $5965.00 for Engine.
The heater coil has gone out in my car so now I have to rely on my heated seats in the winter. The cost of that is $1500.00 but I just don't have the money to fix it after all my other problems with the car.
Fuses are constantly going out.
My dash light has gone out. I thought I would be an easy fix by replacing the bulb. I was surprised to hear from the dealership it is a $500.00 fix.
Gas has to be at least 91 grade so I have to put premium unleaded in my car at all times.
Lights are always coming on the dash.
I am very disappointed with this car and I don't think I'll ever buy a Volkswagen again. If my loan wasn't upside down I would have traded it in by now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
