2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 from North America
I am planning to buy an Audi pretty soon
Timing belt, secondary water pump, mass air flow sensor, hazard light switch, brake light switch.
Front brakes went bad at 36600.
This car is quick and handles quite good. I love my car.
I had it only for 25 days, in which it was with the dealer for 12 days. It was with the dealer two times. The first time, it was my bad, I hit a small pole in a parking lot, which I could not see from my car. So, it made a hole in the radiator and the radiator core support. I had to leave the car with the dealer for 8 days. It was easy to fix, but they could not get the radiator core support for 6 days.
After it got fixed, the check engine light came on and it was making a whining noise from the air filter. So I decided to take the car to the dealer for the 40K service, which could cost around $700. I left the car with dealer and went to work.
The dealer gave me a call after 3 hours, and told me that, my timing belt has a crack and the secondary water pump is leaking. The check engine light was because of the mass airflow sensor, and they replaced it for free, because it was under recall. They also told me that my strut mounts were wearing up, and I have to replace them immediately. I told them to go ahead and replace the water pump and timing belt. The parts were covered under warranty, but they charged me $300 for the labor. I have an appointment next week for the strut mounts. I hope this is an end of the expenses on my car.
I love my car because it is really fast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
