Is this a real issue? There should be no play of movement when you try to jiggle it around. And I've noticed one other review on here about the same problem. Of course I will go to the dealer to have it reviewed. The engine operation seemed unaffected and it wasn't dark enough to tell if the exterior lights were affected. Passenger door and b-pillar creaked and rattled during driving. And the biggest for me is there is a grinding sound right when you're releasing the brake from stop. I owned a 2006 Jetta for 7 years and put just under 200,000 km on it with no clutch issues for the duration of my ownership so naturally, I was excited for my new Jetta.
Original review: June 17, 2018 Love Volkswagen; there is no better car out there in my opinion. They did that for my brother and he got some of the rattles fixed and a 100 dollar check in the mail a month or so later I got the headliner clip recall done, and now the middle of the headliner rattles. I'm tempted to take the panel off again and see if I can reach over there through the panel that comes off to allow you to get to the window area. The two torx bolts bolting the dash in behind the clocks were also given a bit of a tweak up. Solution - dark lithium grease or silicone spray + a plastic wedge of some sort. Seems the dash is a little loose. Two steering racks replaced due to creaking steering at low speeds, the second one was the modified part and the problem has gone for good.
Does it not get cold in Germany? Was told this was somewhat common in 06 Jettas especially with extreme heat. I could not have been more wrong. Dealer agreed that car was damaged during transport, where the side view mirror was broken off and glued back on. As anyone knows the car uses the heat from the engine to warm the coolant that then passed through the heater core. Once you remove it nyou can just unclip the radio harness and antennas so that it will come out. Even tougher to help over the internet. Described as moisture underneath the clear coat on drivers side door.
So first things you should do is checking transmission fluid level, torque converter, motor mount, heat shields and pulleys respectively until you could find the reason. In 2016, I figured that the tire problem had to be in the past. People inside the car just laugh at the fact that this is supposedly a new car. There is a cheap plastic latch that broke off that would cause the compartment lid to fall away from the arm rest. After taking the vents out and then re-installing them.
Branding of the car is trustworthy and the safety approval rating from the international highway safety is good. Previously we had set it back in place not fully secured , but it flew off while driving and was run over by another car. I took my car into the dealership the first chance I got. Now it has been exactly 27 days that I am waiting for my car. The second day I felt cold I noticed my engine temperature gauge was dropping.
If this happens, you should take the vehicle to a repair shop as soon as possible. The only thing I could compare it to would be tapping on the side of a closed, but empty cardboard box. I've got a series of creaks and pop sounds coming from my dash near where the dash meets the windshield. Best to all who ventured out maybe too soon? Repaired with 40 small screws and washers. I'm thinking the radio cage did not completely support the head unit and there was contact between the two. It seems to come from slightly left and above the screen. Anyone who was able to get this problem resolved can you tell me what I should tell the dealership for a quick resolution? The trim around the head unit and heater controls is just held in with clips, start at the bottom and give it a pull.
It should stop while you have your leg pressed against it. I've read all the posts on here and it seems I'm not the only one concerned about the build quality on these new Jettas. Dealers should be familiar with this O. This is a primary reason I don't like buying new cars. I waited 2 more hours for service mgr to come tell me it's normal??? I had it removed and an aftermarket subwoofer installed.
One of the 3 major incidents occurred with another driver was behind the wheel I was a passenger who also owns a manual transmission and has been driving manual transmission cars for over 8 years. It has taken me on numerous road trips with no problem at all. It's getting worse and it doesn't sound safe. I used strips of sticky velco tape the soft side on all of the touching surfaces and it did the trick. There are metal clips that hold it in place, they are durable but can break if you yank too hard. First there's water on the inside of my windshield and I'm not talking a few drops.
Even the Twingo I drove the other day is better built. We took it for a test drive and technician said he does hear and feel it. The tabs are aligned properly on the sides but they are not snug at all. The nearest service center is 250 miles away. Driving me barmy but think that resorting to 4 lb lump hammer which is what it drives you to may invalidate warranty. No more rattling at that corner.
I took my car back to the dealer to have it looked at This can not be normal. Crack suddenly appeared on a very cold morning. My Volkswagen Jetta rides and drives beautiful. I now only get some creeks from the vents when the air con is switched on and the plastic adjusts to the temperature. After a bit of trial and error I packed a small piece of rubber approx 1mm thick between the brushed metal trim and the plastic dashboard just behind the steering wheel. So far I think Honda is the best.
