My 2014 Jetta S the ups and downs

In most respects I love my Jetta. My biggest complaint is it has the smaller engine so there is not much get up and go. Going up large hills my car decelerates. As far as space is it great for myself and soon to be 2 kids. Gas mileage is great as well. It is only the S model and I really wanted an SE but unfortunately things did not work that well. I've had the car for 9 months and it has consistently been extremely reliable! I'm overall very happy with it.

- Erin M

Great car for anyone who loves convenience and comfort.

I love my car. It is my second Jetta that I have bought. The only problems I have had have been either things that the dealership has fixed under my cpo or a dead battery. The seats are really comfortable and I love that they are headed and that the side mirrors are heated as well. The touchscreen radio is amazing and the buttons on the steering wheel are super convenient and make for safer driving. Overall, this is a great car for anyone driving daily.

- Gabrielle A

2014 Jetta: reliable and modern.

My 2014 Volkswagen Jetta was an absolute perfect choice for my first car. Safety, reliability, and high quality features helped me drive safe and drive smart. Visually appealing, interior is sleek, clean and comfortable. Great size overall, roomy trunk which has gotten me through many music festivals and road trips. Definitely a reliable car. Sport mode is super fast and luxurious but I do not utilize it because it uses my gas quicker.

Power Train Nov 13, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 13, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V568000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Jetta Hybrid vehicles manufactured October 2012 through October 2013 and equipped with a DQ-200 direct-shift gearbox. Due to gearbox fluid additives, the control module within the gearbox may corrode. The deposits from this corrosion may cause an electrical short and result in a stall-like condition.
Consequence:
This sudden loss of power while driving increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the gearbox oil with a non-corrosive version, free of charge. The recall began on December 6, 2013. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's recall number is 34F6/4V.
Power Train > Automatic Transmission > Cooling Unit And Lines Apr 14, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 14, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V182000
Summary:
Volkswagen of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2014 Jetta, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, and Passat vehicles equipped with a 1.8T engine and torque converter automatic transmission. In the affected vehicles, the O-ring seals between the oil cooler and the transmission may leak fluid.
Consequence:
The leaking transmission fluid could contact a hot surface and result in a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the O-ring seals in the transmission oil cooler, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 16, 2014. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 38B9/9V.
Fuel System, Gasoline > Fuel Injection System > Fuel Rail Jan 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V028000
Summary:
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jetta vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to November 24, 2014, 2014-2015 Passat vehicles manufactured April 7, 2014, to November 18, 2014, 2015 Golf and GTI vehicles manufactured July 1, 2014, to November 20, 2014, and 2014-2015 Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles manufactured March 31, 2014, to November 27, 2014. A sealing cap at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment.
Consequence:
A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, can result in a vehicle fire.
Remedy:
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel rails with new parts, free of charge. The recall began February 6, 2015. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 24BL. Note: This recall expands and supersedes recall 14V-809 (Volkswagen recall number 24Bi) and only affects vehicles not previously repaired under that campaign.
Air Bags > Frontal Aug 3, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 3, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V483000
Summary:
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.
Consequence:
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.
Remedy:
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. The recall began on January 15, 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
