Did VW print one??? Does such a brochure exist??? The 08 Jetta brochure lists the S, SE, and the SEL models. No Wolfsburg edition.

    I bought my car and as soon as I got it noticed that clock ran like REALLY FAST, contacted dealer which did not know what to do, later they and I contacted VW of America, it has been 3 months and nothing has been done to fix it. I need this to be fixed I did not buy a new car to have it not WORK!!!! Anyone else with the problem???
  • This is a very common problem unfortunately. I have an 06 Jetta and it does the same thing. AFAIK, there is currently no fix for it. There was a TSB for this problem on the Touareg, but my dealer refused to run the procedure on the Jetta. (Stupid, I know). I just live with it. It does make you arrive early to your destinations though. :P

    I'm new to posting here on edmunds and had a question or 2. I'm looking at buying the 2007 Wolfsburg Jetta. I have been told nothing but horrible things about the Jetta, save a couple of friends who love their VW's. What is some of your opinions on the car?

    Is the Jetta a :lemon: ?
  • ruking1ruking1 Posts: 18,442
    Per se, NO! You can definitely get a lemon LESS VW! But given some of the issues that you have probably heard about, the odds are slightly better that you MIGHT get a lemon, vs say a competing model Honda or Toyota. Some of those folks who rate these things say surveyed customers rate domestics higher than Euro cars. My own take is the quality on VW is almost FAR better than either Honda or Toyota. Honda and Toyota do reliability WELL as well have less % lemons with lower quality than does VW does with much higher quality.
  • I recently purchased a 2007 Jetta Wolfsburg edition. Twice, I have had an issue with it while parked on a downward slope. When I go to start the car and put it in reverse, the car will only move forward and will not reverse. Then, the brake and gas gets really tight and I cannot push them at all. I have to turn off the car and restart it several times before the issue is resolved. Any thoughts? I will be taking it into the dealer this weekend.
  • I'm looking to purchase this vehicle around the beginning of august time frame. When does the '08 come out? I'm trying to wait to use this as leverage as i think i can get it for 18K or 18.5 at this time in addition to financing at the dealer. Whats the going rate in July and does the 08 come out in august, anyone the purchased this model recently what did you pay?

    We just purchased on in may 2007, and we love it. The size, ride quality and all the options at a good price.
    Currently the only complaint I have is the gas mileage around town. But I assume that will get better with time.
  • Hello! i just leased a 07 jetta wolfsburg..i was just wondering if there was a difference in driving in regular or sport..does sport take more gas? i personally love the way it drives in sport but i never do because i fear it will eat all my bad thing is that i filled up my tank yesterday and its like two lines above definitely goes fast..any tips as to saving gas?? :P
  • bvdj84bvdj84 Posts: 1,724
    remember your is not broken in yet, wait a few k miles and your mileage will get better
  • I've heard it takes 500, 1000, and 2000 miles to break it in..which one is it? i also noticed that the gas has gotten better. i filled up my tank about three days ago and i have half a tank now..way better then before!!(once every 3 days)..anyways..again does anyone know if there is a difference in driving in sport or regular? :shades: thanks!!

    VW offers 0% APR for 36 months, cannot get better than that.
    The inventory is running out, and will run out in some regions by the end of August, and the '08's are not even out yet, so you might get stuck without a car if you get too much of a "leverage".
  • VW may offer 0% APR, but you need to have a 730 credit rating to get that rate, please remeber next time to mention that. As for leverage i purchased the car OTD for 20,500
  • I have purchased 2007 Wolfsburg edition (Manual Trans.)from Dallas TX area dealer with 0% for 36 months, my OTD was $19907.

    I am very happy with this vehicle. No problem or issues yet. MPG is gradually improving. Last week I got 20 mpg. I have 1200 miles on the odometer.
  • tredferntredfern Posts: 20
    3 questions....(1)Can someone tell me what OTD price means? AND, (2)Is there a Jetta Wolfsburg edition for 2008 & how is it different from 2007? Also, (3)when do they come out? We bought the 2007 in July at a Dallas area dealer also...thanks.
  • 1. Out the Door, meaning , total price you pay driving off the lot, Wolfsberg comes out every other year, but the 08 Jetta has 20 more HP.
    3.they are already out
  • tredferntredfern Posts: 20
    Thank you for the answers..."Out the Door, total price you pay driving off the lot"...I guess that would mean including tax, title all fees??? But not including interest?
    Thanks for answering, sorry to sound so dumb...
    We like the '07 Wolfsburg (AUTO TRANS.), had it 8 weeks, already put 2500 miles on it...I guess if you want the Wolfsburg, we did the right thing then by going ahead & buying & not just waiting on 2008, did not know Wolfsburg only comes out every other year...20 more HP not important to us, anything else better on '08 Jetta than the '07 Wolfsburg? Did you get manual trans.?

    This discussion might help you with some of your questions: Out The Door (OTD) Pricing questions.
  • Yes OTD is including tax. Havent driven the 08 so couldnt tell you first hand, use the comparison feature on the site for that info. I got the 07 Wolfsburg Automatic
  • jeffyscottjeffyscott Posts: 3,855
    I guess that would mean including tax, title all fees??? But not including interest?

    Correct...TTL (tax, title, license) and dealer fees are included in OTD. Interest, if applicable, is not.

    Thank you all...
    scottwvu, looks like I paid about $900 more than you did, I also got AUTO, thought I got the car for $600 below invoice?? When did you buy, should a few weeks make that much difference? I bought this one the First week of July, they said the ones that came in after Feb or March or sometime spring were $95 more, also $200 or so more tax or some fee in Dallas area...I thought I did pretty well, maybe not? I made them all mad, talking to several on phone & email, trying to get lower price, each tried to beat the other...asked for below invoice price, my first time to buy a car alone...not fun, a woman dealing with a bunch of not very nice salesman, 1 was pretty nice, but on average I don't really believe a word they say, I know some are good people & honest, I was married to a former car salesman, ... I know it's too late now on this one, buy I would like to know if I got a good deal & if it was $600 below invoice....How did you go about getting the price you wanted, ask for below invoice?? I am about to buy another vehicle in the next few weeks....this Wolfsburg was for my daughter & she loves it..... thanks.
  • tredfern,

    I highly recommend the 2007 Jetta (base or wolfsburg). My mpg has gone up to 25 already at 1500 miles. It is running smoother. It stalled a few times as I am getting used to driving a stick shift after 15 years.

    What you have paid is fair in my opinion. Did you get 0% for 36 months? You may buy the Rabbit for your daughter which has the same engine and transmission as Jetta. 2 door Rabbit model may be cheaper than 4 door Jetta.

    I researched the price people paid in Edmunds, and went to shop at the dealer on the last day of July. It appears that sales people are eager to make a deal. Within 1 minute the asking price went down by $1500. I bought it from Boardwalk VW in Richardson, TX. Ask for Marcus, he would give you a good deal. He was very nice. Hurry as the 2007 models are selling quickly. Also, try for 0% financing.

    Good luck
  • May I ask where in Dallas you bought this? I've been dealing with Lewisville and they're telling me 20000-21000 for a wolfsburg. I would need an automatic.
  • Any current dealer cash incentives or rebates on the 2007 VW Jetta Wolfsburg?
  • What was the price paid excluding tax, license and fees?

    Any operational and/or MPG updates??

    My daughter just purchased a 07 wolfburg edition. What exactly is different on the wolfburg edition?

    Also, has anybody add the ipod docking station when it didn't come on the car?? cost???
  • the difference is sunroof, heating seats, 16 inch alloys, leatherette and badging

    Ipod docking station costs an extra 100 and is messy with wires. Go to best buy or circuit city and get the wireless one for 40 bucks, its better, I've used both
  • How much did your daughter pay? and why didn't she get the 2008 SE instead?
  • My 2007 wolfsburg is short one wheel. I bought a set of (RSL Burnout) wheels brand new last year. Now I have a damaged one and can't find a replacement. I don't want to buy a whole new set. Please help?
  • Have you consulted your dealership?
