2001 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T 1.8 turbo from North America
More problems since my last review. The hits just keep on coming. Since my last review I have had the arm rest repaired, the oil pan gasket replaced and the oil pump replaced.
The oil pump went out (June 20) when we were out of town and VW roadside assistance would not tow the vehicle more than 100 miles without paying for the repairs first. This put us in a very awkward position. We had to have the car towed to the nearest dealership, borrow our inlaws car, have the car repaired in time for us to go out of town on Wednesday June 23, drive two hours out of our way to pick the car up. In the process the out of town dealer requested all of the oil change records for the vehicle. I told them that with all of the problems I have had with this car that there should not be any questions about servicing this vehicle. I then called VW America and let them know about all of the problems with this car.
Rest assured I will NEVER buy or lease another Volkswagen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
