#252 of 1253 05 Jetta TDI Sedan A/C problem
Oct 30, 2007 (7:40 pm)
I absolutley love my jetta...Would not trade it for anything in the world..I have 83,000 miles on it, I travel alot back and forth to work and it is a 2005. My problem is since I got the car ( bought it brand new) I have had alot of little things go wrong..Mostly electrical..Sometimes the sunroof don't want to close...Headlights or tailights constantly going out..Now my a/c is messing up. I brought it to the shop (not VW, the charge way to much) and they said it was the Evaporator core that went out. It is going to cost be close to a thousand dollars. Has anyone had this problem? The mechanic that always works on my car specializes in foreign cars and works on VW's, Volvo's, BMW, etc..He said he has never had to replace a Evaporator core in this new of a vehicle, mostly on 90 models. My other thing, the car is great especially on mileage, but when you have to have someone work on it, it costs you a arm and a leg because no one wants to touch a diesel, as soon as I tell them it is a diesel, they say they don't work on them and when you find someone that will they charge a arm and a leg...Anyway, has anyone else had this problem?

Hello. I was hoping to get some help with getting a good price on a used 2006 Passat 2.0T Luxury Package. This car has 12K miles on it. It was a corporate car that has been turned it. Looks good. The price they want is 23,500. What is the best that I can do?
#255 of 1253 Considering a Diesel Rabbit...I mean Golf...
Jan 31, 2008 (9:28 am)
We had a diesel Rabbit back when... Anyway, I am thinking of "trading in" my 2006 Chevy Uplander minivan for a diesel Golf, maybe a 2003? As soon as I can scrounge up a used Chevy Astro van (mine died and I couldn't get another right away) I would like to ditch the new minivan and get a diesel VW. It's been a long time since I've driven a VW, and hubby is leery of anything not GM. But as long as I have the Astro for hauling kids and stuff I figure I can get something that gets good gas mileage, has some power to it, and all of that. Advice and suggestions welcome. I am in New York State. (If Chevy would just make a diesel Astro on the S10 platform I'd have been all set... but they don't.)

From your post I am led to believe you still have a need and probably want for a mini van type platform. Being as how you have a very to relatively NEW minivan, I would wait for a TDI (diesel) minivan (Honda Odyssey or even a VW minivan) should/when they start to sell one in the US markets. It will be very hard (from a cost justification point of view) to downsize, still have the need for a minivan platform and have to add another vehicle payment.

A5 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2005.5, 2006 clutch failure.
On Nov 1 2007, VWoA issued Tech Bulletin 2016615. This extends the warranty on Sachs clutch components to 4 yrs/50,000 miles.
Copy of Tech Bulletin here:
Recently had my 06 TDI clutch go at 16,585 miles.
Dealer couldn't find this Tech Bulletin until I handed them a printed copy.
Under warranty, VW paid for new clutch, and rental car.
#258 of 1253 Paid MSRP Tdi 2009 jetta sedan

I live in las vegas but I had to go to AZ to get a dealer to pay sticker. We'll see if they honor that price. I don't have a specific number to show my car, but they seem sincere. We'll see. Chapman phoenix.

Drew VW in La Mesa told me they were selling their Jetta TDIs at MSRP also. Problem is you have to pay CA tax even on out of state sales. Unless they will deliver via the LV dealership.
#260 of 1253 Dealer will sell 09 TDI Wagon 6M at MSRP
Aug 07, 2008 (5:53 am)
Ordered the car last month, arriving by end of Sept., production in progress, awaiting VIN. Dealer in NE PA is Wyoming Valley Motors in Wilkes Barre. They get two diesels every month and have sold out their allocation until Feb 09 even before the first model came.
I live in Metro NY but the dealers here (Toyota, Honda, Nissan, VW) all want 5K over MSRP for hybrids and diesels, if they are even available. Cash upfront even before they will order the vehicle, and as what happened to me with a 2009 Camry Hybrid from Lee's Toyota in Jamaica, Queens, they ordered one for me and when the car arrived, they gave it to someone who gave them more money.

I do hope your experience with the VW dealer is better than the Toyota dealer. I think this is going to be a great success for VW. I do hope a few of the greedy dealers do not give VW a bad name.
