Volkswagen Jetta Problems

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.

Power Window May Fail Due to Window Regulator

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

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.
