2007 Volkswagen Jetta Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

Drive Train -- Verified

Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Electrical issues that are difficult to diagnose—and sometimes intermittent—are typically due to ground wiring issues. The most troublesome ground locations are under the battery or at the engine.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Condensation in the heater case may cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system after sitting for two hours or more. Our technicians tell us that a cleaner is available for the heater case and the drain system should be checked for debris.

2007 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls (Recent)

Drive Train, June 30, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Volkswagen has recalled 2006 Jetta models with 2.01 engines because the fastening screw contact surfaces on the driveshaft cover plate may not have been manufactured to factory specifications. Some screws may not have been properly torqued and could loosen over time, even to the point where the driveshaft detaches from the gearbox. If the vehicle is moving when this happens, the damaged gear box could leak oil onto the street, creating a hazard. Dealers will inspect the driveshaft screws and replace the screws free of charge.

2007 Volkswagen Jetta Reviews

I like the car ad the way it drives, however , it has been plagued by some electrical gremlins, door and window lock modules, phantom alarms, sporadic battery draws.

Since I bought my Jetta 2.5 2007, I have not had any problems. It's been great! I traded in a 2004 Passat TDI (which I bought brand new), because the Jetta 2.5 2007 was nicer in every way! I was sold the moment I saw it.

Just purchased a 2007 Jetta automatic for my college daughter. This was based on my 2009 Jetta automatic that I drive daily for work (company car). Excellent styling, handling, tight body, and peppy engine. The 2009 has 49,000 miles and is as tight and good driving as my 2009. Car has excellent seats, which are very comfortable for long drives of 6-8 hours. Huge trunk and very roomy back seat (I can sit and cross my legs, and I am 6 foot tall.
