2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS WOFLSBURG EDT 1.8T from North America
A great looking fun car... terrible reliability!!
Replaced seat harness, driver side seat was loose.
Recall ignition coils. Replaced the coils at 18k miles.
Replaced electronic control module and many sensors at 25k miles.
Replaced ignition coils again at 28k miles.
This car is attractive and fun to drive when it is running. However, the VW's have many reliability issues. All of the VW's will have greater than expected (based on Japanese cars) issues, mostly electrical problems. The cars are mechanically sound, but the problems are in the computer and the sensors which relay the information to the computer. These cars are very expensive to repair even on the electrical components. Mine had about $3,500 in under warranty repair cost when I sold it and the car was still giving problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
