Jetta Hybrid Highline 1.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,642 miles

Bought this vehicle with 81256kms. Picked it up Wednesday. On Sunday a yellow hybrid(!) light came on, did a u-turn, and parked. Then it went off. Took it to work, Monday & Tuesday. Leaving work Tuesday, the hybrid wouldn't work. if I stopped with it in drive, the engine would run about 3 seconds, then turn off for about 3 seconds, repetitively, until start driving, then would be strictly engine. If in park, engine would be constant. Press e-mode, it would say it was unavailable. I took directly to dealer Tuesday afternoon. They diagnosed it Wednesday, it was the TRANSMISSION $6000!!! They let me trade/exchange it straight across the board, for something of equal value of what I had purchased the hybrid for. So I chose a diesel. Never again in my life will I buy a hybrid!!! 6 days was enough!
