So far with my car my AC has completely stopped working, it overheated yesterday, my door leaks wax (wtf), my transmission makes a thud and crack noise sometimes shifting out of first, the engine over revs which really bothers me. It goes past redline if I don't immediately mash the clutch 500 rpm's before redline because of the over rev. Also the dash lights don't come on unless I turn the headlights on and off about 4 times.

Not to hate on WV. I like my car. It's nice and I feel very good while driving it. I love the 6 speed and digital air. There are just too many problems so far and I don't even think it's been a month since I got it. I'm going to try and go to the dealership tomorrow and see what all is wrong with it.

You might have gotten one of the electrical gremlins that came from mexico... Sad to say but they had a similar problems with the mkiv jetta's, check for any recalls and if you happen to be lucky with a warranty (which I doubt unless it's an 05) you'll be fine, if not... Sorry to hear about the problems
