    All, After a two year layup, I dusted off my Jetta and started bringing it back to life. Between deployments and underway schedules it wasn’t smart to keep my Jetta running in the roads here in the PNW. Now I have discovered I have a problem. I dropped a new battery in, and found that the car...

    So I have the electrical issues that a lot of MKIV owners have, and it's been getting progressively worse. Started with not being able to control anything from the driver's side (windows, locks, mirrors). Then later on my key FOB stopped working out of nowhere (and that was a car alarm...

    Alright guys, So today I bought a pair of 8 inch subwoofers for my Jetta. They're some random brand so I can't tell you much about them other than they say "Nitro Bass" on them, are 8 inches each, and both take 1800 watts, 3600 watts in total. And I got them for $50, so quite the deal if you...

    Hello everyone, I just bought a 2001 vr6 manual 5 speed. For about the first month it's run perfectly, but just last week, any time I shift into 3rd, the entire car shuts off for a split second and then comes back on.

    I read through the threads through page 6 and wasn't able to find anything that helps and search was unhelpful as well.

    So on my '01 jetta everything works fine except that the speedo is kind of bad. For one thing it always reads 7mph fast even when the car is off, and it gets jumpy if you go above 35. Does anyone know if there is an easy fix or how much it would cost to fix a problem like this?
