What can I say, Another V-Dud in Volkswagen's infamous tradition of over-engineered, over-priced under-performing, and unreliable automobiles.


Share the love. So, they are not perfect. Nothing ever is in life. The new Jettas are a sweet ride!

I was one of the unfortunate purchasers, a single mother in Brooklyn NY who wanted a relaible safe vehicle for myself and my son... I lived this nightmare with three breakdowns while driving with my two years old in the car during the first three weeks post purchase! They replaced my vehicle and now i recieved a recall notice... for the replacement!
