problem #1

Oct 302006

Jetta 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

On 30 October 2006, I had to have my 2002 Volkswagen that was purchased brand new towed into the dealership. My car wouldn't start. Thought it was the battery, replaced the battery and it still wouldn't start. I had to have the power wire to the starter replaced. I'm being told by the dealership that it is very uncommon for this wire to be replaced. I just would like to know from Volkswagen have they received in other complaints. I think this is something of a manufacture defect.
