2002 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8 T from North America
Within a week of owning the car the check engine light came on and it ended up being the battery. Then the glove box broke, then the driver side door was wobbly, then the antifreeze light came on I called the dealership and they were AWFUL to deal with. So I took it to a family mechanic who told me it had an antifreeze leak and the antifreeze they used was eating my electrical system. Now it rained and somehow my car got wet inside and my air stopped running, my brakes squeak and today it over heated and it on the side of the road. All this in just one year of owning it!!! This was supposed to be a "certified vehicle"
I just want to make sure people think twice before purchasing this car. It has given me nothing, but problems. I had a 1007 Toyota and traded it in because it was "ugly" I WISH I never did that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I think VW might be giving some $$ assistance to people that have 'coolant migration'. This has been a problem since the Golf/Jetta III. Have you talked to VW customer care?

Has there been any developments regarding the last post on VW giving $$ for the repair of coolant migration?
