Yep, made in mexico = the crap. I'm not sure what the deal is with that country but quality is not job #1. I've said this before, my friend had an '00 jetta, I had an '00 A4. Very similar cars designed by the same parent company sharing many parts. Mine was assembled in germany, his is mexico. Biggest problem I had was a glovebox rattle. He had a sagging door, window fell out of track and broke, mechanical and electrical problems with the power seats and a faulty MAF sensor. He sold that bastard as fast as he could. Bought a used A4 off ebay.

you said right white MAF sensors going bad all the time are the most common problems. O2 sensors arent all that great either and just a myriad of electrical issues. Funny too that the Passat's which are mostly made in germany are not nearly the trouble cars the Jetta's are. The A4's aren't nearly as lousy as the Jetta but I have seen quite a few with replaced turbo's around 125k and below...however when you start getting into replacing steering and suspension components be ready to liquidate your savings.

they are not manufactured in Germany anymore.

the TDI models are good however, but expect to pay ridiculous money for one
