haha! Yeah, I bet.
Update: The recall was the culprit to the horn not working correctly. It all relates to the wiring harness. The recall was fixed! It took them several hours to get it done. If you have this recall then I would go in and have them update your car so that this doesn't affect you.
I am all good to go.
I have been very happy with my car! Now my horn works! lol

I am having the same issues with my 2011 Jetta SE. My car is pulling to the right and I noticed it within the first five days of purchasing the call. It's now been seen by the dealer twice: The first time they did an alighment, which did not fix the problem. The second time, they put on different tires and it did not work. The service guys do not see the problem. They say it meets all their specs. My sales guy drove the car and he agrees with me that there is a major pull to the right, which should not be there. The GM at my dealership stopped returning my cars. Called VW of America and start a claim number to have a District guy look at the car. The dealer's head service guy is now involved and they are going to have the District guy and a enginer from VW look at the car. I think there is a problem with the stearing that VW is not telling the public. I want my car fixed or replaced. What is going on with your car. - Daniel

My 2011 VW Jetta SE did the same exact thing, but my car was pulling to the left. I really noticed the car pulling when I went over 50 to 60mph and the steering wheel vibrated, as well. . I, also thought it was the alignment. However, it was the rear axle beam that needed replacing. I have had my car for less than a month. I suggest you having the dealer look the axle. I hope this helps.

Update: My horn does not work again. I am not sure what happened.
Taking it back in soon!
lol...wow! Oh well. Like my dealer said its all under warranty, but I have little time to leave my car there. At least it is the horn. Hopefully, it stays that way.

I drove a 2011 Jetta TDI twice in January and liked it a lot--just decided something else would work better so I bought something else. That being said, we're starting to think about buying a car in the Spring for my daughter who turns 16 next year. I think the Jetta SE is high on our list. We like the way it looks, it has good safety scores and the 3 years of free maintenance is one less thing to worry about. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread to see how they seem to be working out for you all.

I love my 2011 Jetta SE. I got the convenience and roof package. It truly feels much more expensive than it is. The maintenance is nice too! My 08 Jetta SE can cost nearly $100 sometimes to get it all done.
Definitely a great car with great bang for the buck. Great engine, safety and the rear room is nice. I got the white gold with cornsilk. A great color combo!

I have 2003 jetta wagon 86,200 miles other day would not start. Can push start it and runs fine. Does not seem like the battery, but there is no starter noise when you try to key start. Any thoughts suggestions help

Sounds like you answered your own question, check out the starter.

If it is an automatic, check the brake-pedal switch and neutral switch. The starter will not enguage if any of the safety-switches are not made.
If it is a manual xmission, check the clutch interlock swith.
