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

Volkswagen Jetta Recalls
Certain 2014 Volkswagen models equipped with the 1.8T engine and an automatic transmission are being recalled. A fluid leak can develop from a defective o-ring on the oil cooler where it mounts to the transmission. In some instances, the leaking transmission fluid could contact a hot surface resulting in a fire. Dealers will replace the oil cooler seals at the transmission to correct this concern.
Certain vehicles produced with the DQ-200 direct-shift transmission are being recalled because the fluid additive used in the transmission could cause corrosion of the internal components. This corrosion can cause an electrical short resulting in a stall like condition. A sudden loss of engine power would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the transmission oil with a non-corrosive version to correct this concern.
A stainless steel exhaust tip installed after production may extend beyond the original length of the factory-installed exhaust pipe. It's possible for inadvertent contact to occur, which could cause a burn. Dealers will replace the stainless steel exhaust tip as necessary to correct this concern. The Volkswagen recall number is 26G8/U3.

I bought this car a little under 5 years ago. in the intervening time I've put almost 150,000 miles on my jetta, and not the old lady driving back and forth to the market to get Wheatabix kind of miles, but the jobs in three different cities, hauling metal and tools for metal art, drunken offroading at my mom's house kind of miles. i've put this car through the worst sort of hell one can imag...
I bought this car new and have never had so many problems with a vehicle before. The car runs great and is very mechanically sound, but the nuisance issues have made owning this car a headache. So far I've had to replace the A/C Compressor (covered under warranty as VW admitted a problem with the part - told it would have been $3200 to repair), the drivers door wiring harness ($600), the sunro...
