problem #2

  • 22,000 miles


The airbag light has come on 4 times in my 2005 new Jetta 2.5 the seat belt sensors in front have been replaced once at dealership, this started when the car had only 22000 miles and kept coming on around every 10000 miles, they had to also replace the airbag(s) not sure which ones were replaced, the seatbealts don't wind back up properly sometimes as well. At around 25000 miles the brakes had to be replaced, we heard a clicking one day in the rear wheel well, we took it to the dealership they had replaced the brakes, rotors etc. I have documentation of these repairs.

Jetta 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,000 miles
I was making a left hand turn and for no reason whatsoever the driver and passenger airbags deployed. Following the deployment of the airbags, my hands were thrown off the steering wheel, causing me to lose control of the vehicle. The vehicle then proceded to go straight up onto a curb causing the entire passenger side of the vehicle to be damaged. The car was not drivable
