2010 Volkswagen Jetta Problems
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.
Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.
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.
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.
2010 Volkswagen Jetta Recalls (Recent)
RepairPal Expert Overview:
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.

2010 Volkswagen Jetta Reviews
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 to Best Buy and replace the entire radio just to access my XM Radio and use my MP3 player in the car....expensive added cost and VW refused to upgrade the sorry stock radio. The general car seems to run well enough though.
I gave this car a low rating on interior because unlike my previous Prius it has very little storage or convenience holders.
My radio has had continuous problems when switching from Sirius to AM. In the switch I will often just get static. They have replaced the amplifier but still some problem.
I took it back and they could not replicate the problem. They asked me to make a note of where I am when it does it again. Waiting to see.
Volkswagen service mgr. told me I might have to live with the problem. I assured him I would not.
A Volkswagen rep told me it was my problem. Really!!
I have 2010 from November 2009 and i love it. I dont like loud engine noise at the begining but it is mentioned by factory it is needed for cat converter to heat up.. Also i dont like CD player that it takes about 30sec. to start to play if you put your own mp3 burned cd... Other that that i LOVE IT and going from 2000 Jetta to this one - you feel a need to change a car :)
