They had to jump start the car when I got there. There was damage to the hood’s paint. An engine light came on as soon as she turned it on as well.

Overall:

The Jetta is a great car...I have owned 3 of them...all diesels ..but have driven many other non diesel Jettas. They are a fantastic car. 2012 Models..should run between $4500-$7000 depending on miles/condition/model . Be aware that if it is Standard...the clutch may go out after 60,000 miles..depending on use...so definitely check the clutch...the AC Unit could be better..so check that out also..it is pricey to fix..another thing...People love to hit you car...door dings and etc...I parked so far away from everyone...all the time...Still managed to get door dings and bumper bumps. Sound of the radio is great with windows up...window down all the way is ok....but with it open an inch to 3 inches...not good....If you are a neat nick...get the floor mats, and mud flaps...car kicks up a great deal of dirt in the back. I averaged 45+ mpg in my 2002 (80000 miles, clutch issues at 60K), 43 mpgs in my 2006(130000 miles, AC issues at 100K), and 42 mpgs in my 2015 (85,000 miles, AC issues (small ones) after 6 months...everytime I had it checked...it was fine... Overall.. very comfortable for front seat, and rear seat small people...I now have a PASSAT...very nice also.

Excessive oil consumption. No oil showing on the stick before 10,000. Miles, again I liked 1700 more miles before oil change & no oil showing on stick. So VW changed oil & filter & said they added mor... Read More
