Get this book to save you some headaches on how things come apart.
Find a VW forum to find fixes to common issues. Your door lock could be as simple as resoldering some points on the circuit board.
Go to the VW parts site and check the clearance section.This message has been edited. Last edited by: petr,

I have a 2013 Jetta SE 2.5 and absolutely love it! Hoping for a Passat fairly soon...
To each their own; sometimes they suck the big one, and other times like mine they are awesome... your mileage may vary (pun intended).
It does ride nice. I don't know about BMW nice but it's nice and the interior quality is pretty good. Seats don't show any wear for a 13 year old car which is impressive. Headliner is jacked up - another common VW problem apparently. Once that's fixed the interior will look brand new.
I don't want to tell you guys how much the exhaust shop quoted me for the flex pipe. Apparently it sits right over the front subframe and a total pain to get to, so the guy was like "if I am doing it, it's going to cost you." Great. Looks like I have a busy weekend in store for me.This message has been edited. Last edited by: AirmanJeff,
That’s not a glowing review when we’re talking about a product that costs thousands of dollars.
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, manage.

You’re taking my comment out of context. I love my Jetta and wouldn’t hesitate to buy another! Even better would be a Passat... but I’m good with my Jetta for now!
I've owned three VWs. Two older air-cooled ones when I was a yute, and more recently a 2004 New Beetle. At least when I was young, they were cheap and simple enough to do my own maintenance. The New Beetle we called our "marvel of German engineering". Like the above-described whack-a-mole, there was always something. And it was never easy. Even swapping out a burned-out headlight was a major project.
And every Nissan I've owned has been great.
Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.

The old air cooled & simple ones were great in their time. Easy to work on and cheap to fix.
The newer ones were cool, zippy little cars when they were new but after the warranty ran out, trouble began.
Most cars nowadays can be kept running and reliable well over 100k but not VW's.
A $400 car is a piece of shit???? I’m shocked!
Use thumb-size bullets to create fist-size holes.
Wasn't the point of the story at all.
Every single thing is funky on them. Daughter has a 2017 that I got for a pretty good deal. I go to change out her windshield wipers. Mind you I am a Toyota, Subaru, used to have Ford kind of guy. They all use the basic hook type assembly. Not VW. Nope. I had to find one with all those goofy alternate attachments and build a wiper. What a pain in the ass for something so simple.
