Good build quality. Safe. Amazing mileage. Slightly better than average driving experience. Great for useable space. Holds value well.No Diesel stink, but definite diesel rattle, still less then old cars. Harsh out of idle into first. Check tire sensors ALWAYS on.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta (8/22/2019)

Campaign Number: 19V615000
Component Name: STEERING:COLUMN LOCKING:ANTI-THEFT DEVICE
Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
Description: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

A build-up of silicate on the shift lever micro switch contacts may enable the key to be removed from the ignition when the transmission shift lever is not in "Park."
Defect: Removing the key while the shift lever is in a position other than "Park" increases the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta (8/4/2015)

Campaign Number: 15V483000
Component Name: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL
Manufacturer: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
Description: Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
Defect: A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Corrective Action: Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective cover over the steering wheel clock spring if the air bag light is off. If the airbag light is on and the steering wheel clock spring requires replacement, dealers will install a new steering wheel clock spring. These repairs will be performed free of charge.
