Expected better quality! by Ed on 04/08/2011. Trim: 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Edition, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The fuel efficiency is great, as well as the handling and acceleration, with snow tires it accelerates better than most four-wheel drive vehicles.
Cons: The vehicle has been a service shop queen since we purchased it six months ago. Twice for an issue with the fuel injectors, the seal between the injector and head was installed upside down on one cylinder which tripped out the egr valve light. The vehicle was in about five or six times because the computer was malfunctioning, I had to bring in videos proving this because each time they would simply say that it was programmed wrong, which it was not. Then the armrest built into the back seat would not fold down, I wind up being told by the service department that it was my kids car seat that bent two brackets, $700 just for the parts and no guarantee that the car seat will not bend it again!
Overall review: Good on gas mileage but I can’t stand how often it is in the shop, will be trading it in soon. Those are merely my experiences and I am not saying that all VW’s have those issues but it is still the last VW I will own!
