With less than 75k miles on my VW Jetta my ABS dash light came on. After immediately taking it to the dealer I was notified that it would be a $2382 repair. I purchased my certified used vehicle from pacific VW dealership only four years ago. I have taken my vehicle into the dealership for every dash light and rutuine services. I purchased my vehicle for over 18k four years ago and currently the dealership offered me $1500 towards another VW... no thank you. I will NEVER again purchase a VW and I will let everyone I know the ordeal I've had to go through.
