Volkswagen Jetta 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Jetta here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Dealer trust

    I'm not surprised the dealer won't budge; he doesn't want to be held responsible for giving poor advice if something happens as a result of missing or extending the service intervals. I would take the same approach and say that you should do the service as they suggest.

    Press your case with the company, they should come to the party with a replacement, after all, the car has only done 33,000 km.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra VW tyres scalloped

    The mileage you’ve had from the tyres is about average for a front-wheel drive car of that type, so I would doubt you’ve got any claim against VW. Tyres are not covered by the warranty, by VW, or any other carmaker.

  • Peeling paint on VW Jetta

    From what you say it does appear that it's a problem with the painting and not the result of a stone chip. Have it checked by the VW rep and make a claim against the warranty. If the rep rejects it you could go direct to VW and present your case directly. If you have no joy there you could consult a paint specialist for an independent appraisal, but as that would likely cost more than the repair you would be better off it have the dealer repair it.
