What problems have you had with your Jetta? I had so many problems and wanted to know if you had the same problems.
Bought my '00 Jetta in '02: Replaced transmission, window regulator, airbag sensor in passenger seat, tensioner pulley, engine and tranny mounts, and A/C hoses. All were dealer faults, and I'll drive my Jetta "til the doors fall off".
both rear wheel bearings replaced
wiper bearing seized
water pump replaced
MAF sensor replaced
CD changer died
antennae corroded at roof, replaced base
All happened between 40,000 and 90,000 km (ie out of warranty)
Still waiting for MAF refund
From 90,000 to 160,000 only needed routine maintenance, tires, brakes, battery, etc
Average for reliability, but the best car I've ever owned for driving fun!
My radio screen doesn't work... [Dealer ordered new radio]
My ESP won't turn on... [Dealer ordered new part]
Two CV boots...
Winshield wipers are very loud/annoying...Blade fell off two days ago after being replaced once already...
Emergency brake handle comes right off revealing a metal stick... [Told dealer, they gave me a new handle but it still comes right off? lol]
Crappy jack tore a 1" hole in my sideskirt after the car fell off it...Good thing I still have my arms.
But, to tell ya the truth, I love my Vdub
. Oh yeah, also I only have 9,200 miles on my car.

1. Cracked PCV hose. Replaced under warranty at the 40,000mi service.
I also had the coils & window regulator clips replaced but got those done at my 35,000mi oil change before they failed so they weren't really "problems" per se.
And that's the end of that chapter!

ive only had my car like 3 weeks and ive had my check engine light go on ( yes i checked the gas cap) and had the stereo go into "safe" mode when i have the heater all the way on. just put in a new pioneer deck and the check engine light has gone off, so most of it is just annoying stuff
