Smile Looking to buy a vw jetta

Good morning,

I was wanting to buy a 2004-2009 vw jetta diesel but after reading reviews on edmunds consumer website I've been kind of iffy on it. My boss used to have one from 1999 with 400,000 and some odd miles and never had a problem with his just the general maitnance on it i.e oil changes tires headlights and timing belt that's all he had to do. But from what I'm reading now everyone seems to have a problem with them. Is vw as unreliable as what people say they are or do people just not take care of their cars? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Scott

Remember, people will complain more the give it good ratings. VW jettas are very good cars, and if taken care of - will run for ever. My grandpa has a 85 Jetta diesel with 328 on it. He said,"Nothing wrong with it, why would I need a new car?" He has a VW mechanic maintain his though. Take it to the dealer if your not a good mechanic or don't have one.
