The Volkswagen Jetta appeals to the buyer who wants plenty of space, solid feel and a European driving experience. The broad line spans a frugal hybrid and diesel versions and tops out with a sporty, upscale GLI. While the current-generation Jetta started out as a coarse and decontented car, continual updates have significantly improved how the Jetta drives and how it scores in our testing.

    Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

    Nicole H., WI (2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2.0-L 4 Cyl diesel)

    "The system yells me the DEF reservoir is low and it is possible the engine will not start. The DEF was full and the dealership could not get the message to stop. The engine has always started"

    "Too much hard plastic in the interior, seems to be causing a phantom buzzing in my door/dash near the side mirror that I have not ever been able to track down to fix. Super irritating, and is typically at highway speeds under about 30% throttle, so it happens all the time."

    Anonymous, OK (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SEL 2.0-L 4 Cyl diesel)

    "There is a rattle noise in either the right passenger door and/or the right side of the dash at certain speeds and gears."

    What Owners Say

    A/C compressor

    "not cooliong"

    Anonymous, FL (2015 Volkswagen Jetta S 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)

    "I have not fixed it because of cost, but my compressor is not working as efficiently as it should. It can take as long as 15 minutes before the A/C starts cooling. The cost of repair from the dealer is over $1100 which is too expensive. Although the dealer ran a test and said the system is not cooling as well as it should be, since the A/C still works, and works fine as far as I'm concerned, I've not tried to fix it. Since I'm currently unemployed, I fear that it will fail before I get a real job."

    Lynne A., GA (2015 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)

    "A temperature sensor had to be changed"

    Michael D., ON (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)
    Blower (fan) motor

    "On the highest setting, the fan is super noisy. Next setting down is considerably less noisy. Driving an Acura I had a more comfortable AC experience."

    Anonymous, (2015 Volkswagen Jetta Unsure Unsure)
    Evaporator

    "A/C evaporator would freeze and blow warmer air after 80-120 miles of driving. Had to turn off A/C in order to defrost evaporator, about 10 minutes of driving. Problem never resolved by VW over 37000 miles"

    Paul K., MI (2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2.0-L 4 Cyl diesel)

    "Evaporator ices up when AC runs for a long period of time. No issue on short drives. May be due to refrigerant leak - unsolved."

    Anonymous, MD (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl diesel)

    "The front left running lamp is burned out. To replace the bulb the front of the car must be disassembled. This requires about three hours of labour to re & re. at a cost of $120 per hour plus the cost of the bulb. Sounds like a make work project by Volkswagen."

    Robert D., BC (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
    Headlights

    "There was a recall on this item"

    Anonymous, TN (2015 Volkswagen Jetta S 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)

    Anonymous, WI (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)
    Interior lights

    "light in passenger vanity mirror was loose - rattling when car delivered"

    Anonymous, CT (2015 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid 1.4-L 4 Cyl hybrid)
    Keyless entry

    "The drivers side door lock would not unlock in freezing temperatures. The door latch assembly had to be replaced. Fortunately I have the skills and tools to do this work myself, otherwise it would have been a very expensive repair."

    David B., CA (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
    CD player

    "CD player stopped working and we can not get the CD s out, took it to Volkswagen . they said id would be about 800 to 900 dollars to fix it . car just got out of warranty by 2000 miles."

    Anonymous, CA (2015 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0-L 4 Cyl)

    David B., CA (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
    Radio

    "Cannot get consistent signal for several channels. I can with the Passat, which is the same year. Dealer Service center claims to not be able to identify issue. An annoyance."

    Anonymous, IL (2015 Volkswagen Jetta SEL 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)

    Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

    What Owners Say

    Hydraulics (clutch master or slave cylinder)

    "Yes the problem was resolved. I honk someone put DOT 5 fluid in the reservoir without completely evacuating all of the DOT 4 fluid first. The clutch pedal went all the way to the floor. I thought it was a bleeding problem somehow(before I theorized about the incompatibility issue), so I bled the master cylinder and it worked again very briefly. Then I talked to the dealership and was amazed that the car was still under warranty. They replaced the master and 3 of the 4 wheel cylinders. Problem solved."

    Engine rebuild or replacement

    "A cylinder valve spring failed at 71,000 miles. The failure resulted in damaging the engine to the point of needing a replacement.
