2006 Volkswagen Jetta
By all accounts, the new Jetta is a leap forward in refinement, handling, power, and value.

The ultimate Transmission Scam by Arkansas Bishop on 08/23/2011. Trim: 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: A pleasure to drive; excellent mileage...40-50; I have gotten as high as 54 MPG on the automatic TDI
Cons: Speedometer is fast; transmission just came apart at 157,000; no one will repair; VW quotes me $7000 to replace it! All the area mechanics tell me this is a disposable transmission! Shame on VW!
Overall review: As much as I love the car, I would not buy another VW because of the shoddy Transmission flaw; I only wish I had known before I purchased the car...I am in too deep now to quit...I will store the car until I can locate a low mileage used tranny and will toss the dice again! Can anyone tell me where to find a low mileage tranny with warranty?
