Best to check OLX and your friendly tyre dealers in case they have stock after an owner has upgraded.

There are also some mechanics who can straighten bent rims - provided the bend is within margin of safety of course.

If you're buying more than one, given the Jetta is 112 PCD, you can even look for options from Octavia, Mercedes, Audi base trims which come with 16" alloys.

Re: Volkswagen Jetta : Test Drive & Review

Dear BHPians,

I am facing a weird issue in my Volkswagen Jetta MK6 2011 MT.

As soon as the car is turned on, the AC compressor is spinning all the time.

When AC is switched on, the cooling takes place but after some time, normal air is blown. This process repeats. FNG AC guy checked gas and topped it to the required level. Cooling has improved post that.

Car was serviced last week.

BHPian vishy76 suggested to replace PCV Valve which may be faulty.

Recorded the issue and shared it via WhatsApp to another service manager from other VW ASC and he is saying that AC compressor is fine but there is electrical issue with the car hence the car isn't cooling that well continuously. He has asked me to get the car to workshop, but to solve the problem, i don't want another problem to crop up.

First it was Waterpump failure, next ABS sensor, now AC.

I didn't wanted to spend @67k for the new OEM assembly and was not much sure about performance of after market ones. Hence decided to try my luck at Shivajinagar market. Only 2 people in the whole market looked reliable and experienced in Jetta headlights. Others simply said they either don't have the projector headlamps or looked fishy. I got one from a person named Firdoz (contact available with me if required). He has good knowledge of his trade and also came along with me to my home with the headlight so as to make sure everything was fine. I was more than happy with his commitment and would recommend him for any headlight replacement for any car. The replaced headlight is working fine, couldn't have been happier
Hi @roadsurfer,could you also share the contact details of the person where you got your headlights replaced?
Thanks and cheers!

Re: Volkswagen Jetta : Test Drive & Review

Hi guys,

Posting after a long time on this forum .

I had purchased yokohama bluearth gt tyres for my jetta.

My previous tyres were michelin primacy 3 which were excellent tyres. Unfortunately I had been unable to source them and hence went with the yokohama's.

In new condition these tyres were good though the fuel economy dropped slightly vs the earlier michelins.

But now, after 15 months and nearly 20000 kms on them , the tyre noise has increase substantially and more importantly the grip has dropped quite a bit especially if cruising at 100 kmph or more. This being in dry conditions. I fear what will happen in the upcoming monsoon period.

The tyre noise issue started once the tyres crossed the 8 month mark.

These are no where in the league of the michelins and I have had a couple of close shaves where the tyres just give up early in the braking stage and the car rolls further than one's judgement .

I feel that the factory fitted Goodyear eagles were more grippy than these tyres. Albeit the noise levels were similar.

If I had earlier known of this behaviour , I would not have given a second thought to buying them and would have looked for other brands.

Hence sharing my experience for others to make more informed decisions . Thanks.

Re: Volkswagen Jetta : Test Drive & Review

I had the same Blueearth GT fitted at 40 k kms. They were made Oct 2020 and I got those in Dec 2020. Old tyres were Goodyear Eagle. For me, the grip, noise, comfort, vibration all are at least 2 notches better. It has been 3 years and have done 15k kms. No significant problem has been detected yet. Definitely satisfied by the upgrade.

Re: Volkswagen Jetta : Test Drive & Review

I have had this faint flywheel noise for like 10k kms now. Does it affect the car's performance in any way?
