2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T from North America
Expensive to own and very unreliable
Check engine light comes on repeatedly for various reasons. Dealer is no help. Spent several thousand dollars in repairs already.
Plastic interior trim parts wear quickly.
Radio station presets reset when starting car.
Trunk lid would not close.
Would not consider another Jetta or VW. Expensive to own and very unreliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Umm, how can it be very unreliable when it hasn't broken down yet?

Gee, you don't thing the several thousand dollars worth of repairs might lead someone to think their car is unreliable? Volkswagen owners have really swallowed the marketing lines if they think they bought great cars. They are rolling money pits!

Just bought a 2006 Jetta 2.0 turbo 2 months ago. Traded in a 2008 Honda Accord. The Jetta has much more power better gas mileage, and has many more options. This is the fastest European car I have ever driven, this 2.0 turbo is a beast, drive one and you will be hooked.
The workmanship could be better, the Honda's and other European cars feel more better built. But for fun and speed, the Jetta is one to try.
Buy a used one, the new prices are too much for what you get.
