2010 Volkswagen Jetta Problems

Odor From HVAC Vents

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.

Ignition Coil, Ignition Wires, and Spark Plugs May Fail

An ignition coil or spark plug may fail unexpectedly resulting in an engine misfire and possible illumination of the Check Engine Light. Vehicles equipped with spark plug wires may also develop a misfire caused by a failed spark plug wire.

High Mileage Automatic Transmissions May Have Shifting Problems

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

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls

Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments

The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Drivers Side Air Bag Does Not Function In Crash

The driver's side air bag may not be powered due to a loss of electrical connection from the clock spring sliding contact in the steering wheel caused by contamination. Dealers will repair the vehicle free of charge.

Automatic Transmission Shifts Into Neutral Without Warning

Connectors for a temperature sensor inside the direct shift gearbox (DSG) transmission may have been insufficiently crimped. They could incorrectly read a high transmission oil temperature, and abruptly shift into neutral. The shift position indicator in the instrument panel would begin to flash and the "Depress Brake Pedal" indicator light will be illuminated to alert the driver to apply the brakes. The abrupt shift could lead to a crash. Volkswagen and Audi dealers will reprogram the transmission control module (TCM) with updated software. The recall began October 20, 2009. The Volkswagen recall number is 37E3/S7 and the Audi recall number is 37E5/J7.

Purchased May2010...6,500 miles so far with zero issues. I rated the engine 4 of 5 as it does not idle "perfectly" when first started. Car seems as solid as my BMW.
great car,highway milage, 50 plus ,12000 miles,2010JSW Very nice interior.
Nice car so afr- the interior conveniences are pretty low though. The cup holders are in awkward place, the ipod dock can't be viewed as its located inside the center console, the stock radio is pretty lowsy and takes up the entire dashboard space for no reason. The CA Limited Edition Jetta eliminated the capability for sattelite radio or any other MP3 player accessibility. I had to go straight...
