2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8 turbo from North America
Invest your money in Honda or other Japanese car!!! My next car will not be VW that's for sure..
I have a 2003 Jetta GLS 1.8T. Lets put it this way...Just about everything under the sun has gone WRONG with this car. Thought I was making an investment on a reliable car...what a mistake that was. Waterpump busted, Temp sensor went, coolant was NOT circulating...and the iceing on the cake..freakin' radiator had a crack!! I don't even feel like I drive a car that has 180 ponnies under the hood, more like it has 115 hp.
Now every time I sit & drive the car, I am worried that some thing else will go wrong and there goes yet another $1500...HONDA CIVIC here I come!!!!
Faulty catalytic converter, got that changed.. and my car started to overheat not even in two minutes of driving... go figure! I would've been much happier with a CIVIC!!
I took care of it from the day I purchased it. From putting premium gas, oil change with 1000 miles under..and still full of problems!!!! After three re-calls and countless repairs, I am sure I won't be making another VOLKSWAGEN purchase as long as I live. Just disappointed!!! Didn't realize it will cost me this much money, and most importantly for a car that is less than 5 years old!!!
Just a $MONEY$ eating piece of JUNK!!!!!!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
