I am the only owner of a 2012 Jetta SE (bought it new in 2012). Since Day 1 I have been complaining about the transmission. It shifts hard up, it shifts hard down, it will slam into gears going uphill, it just makes you nervous about driving the car. Every time I...

I am never buying a Volkswagen | Volkswagen Of America in Kansas City, Missouri

I have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta that I bought used at 30,000 miles. I have already replaced an ignition switch, a window switch and a car horn. I question the quality of these cars and am ready to pay it off and sell it. I will definitely never buy a Volkswagen car ever again and will probably buy a Honda. I have had Honda before and sadly miss my old Honda. I feel I am not the only person who questions the quality of Volkswagen and the cars they are producing. BUYER BEWARE.

Your car's warranty was up long ago. Nothing is warranted forever.

Your car is over 5 years old. I have 39,000 miles on my 2012 VW CC. I take it to an independent mechanic now...and pay for whatever is necessary.

I have been pleased with my purchase and intend to keep it for a lot longer. By the way, I'm 75.

Will never buy VW again | Volkswagen in Herndon, Virginia

Terrible customer service and unreliable product. Jetta with 100k miles suddenly stopped running; parked car would not start. I was told it needed a new engine. I asked why there was not any warning at all.. no check engine light, car was driving normally... asked why this would happen when car has been serviced at VW on-time (have history of all maintenance)... they basically said I'm out of luck. They want over $7000 for a new engine even though it should not have failed to begin with. In fact, it was in for a recall a few months ago and they said everything looked good. Thank goodness the engine didn't fail while driving! Talk about unsafe! If you're buying a VW, be prepared for a vehicle that is expected to last 100,000 miles. If you want a car that's going to last longer- or if you expect decent customer service- keep looking.

My clutch went at 52k miles. It was replaced by previous owner at 15k miles. VW mechanic said that he had never seen this issue before. I have 60% of the clutch pads left but gear connecting to trans is stripped. VW will not warranty this. Will never buy vw again.
