Hello All,

Just picked up a 2005 VW Jetta Wagon from a one owner. It is a little neglected but buy just one person ::) Looking forward to freeing the TDI power and economy!
The $3900 Jetta’s Problems:
  • Oil cooler leaks
  • Occasionally takes a few seconds to start
  • Water leak fixed, but mold is starting to grow
  • Unidentified carcass smell in engine bay
  • I hate the stock DSG transmission
  • Scratches everywhere
The $3900’s Jetta’s Positives:
  • It was cheap
  • Relatively fuel efficient
  • Fun turbo diesel noises
  • Handles great for street use
Emarc wrote on jayski's profile.
