Why is my car making a ticking sound when accelerating?

Asked by Dec 05, 2015 at 12:20 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I'm driving my car it makes a
ticking sound that gets faster as I

Thank you for the help!

Have the front end inspected, checked out for wheel bearings, breaks, CV joints, etc.

CV joints would be my guess.
