Now in its seventh generation, Volkswagen’s perennially popular Jetta is a well-engineered, practical, and thoroughly sensible compact sedan with a surprisingly generous amount of interior and trunk space. The sporty-minded Jetta GLI, which returned in 2019 after a short absence, retains all the practical aspects of its tamer Jetta siblings but does away with the strictly sensible, replacing it with a healthy dose of performance, handling chops and luxury.

If this happens, fuel could leak from the charcoal canister. Note: This problem could cause a fuel odor, the fuel nozzle to stop early and/or fuel to spill when refueling. Safety Risk: A fuel leak can create the risk of a fire. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail and advise you to take your vehicle to a dealership to replace the suction jet pump.
