Volkswagon Complaint - 2007 Jetta has terrible and mushy brakes
PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA -- I recently purchased a 2007 VW Jetta for my 16 year old daughter. While my 16 year old was driving it I would keep yelling at her to break and she would say she was trying. So I drove the car and had others around me drive it, the brakes are terrible and feel mushy. You can't do emergency stops in this car! I was driving in heavy traffic and a car cut me off so I had to slam on the brakes. The car would not STOP! I literally had to swerve into the carpool lane to avoid an accident. I took the car to VW and they said it drives normally and that's the new breaking system in all 2006 and up Jettas. I don't see how a car like this could ever pass a road safety inspection. VW needs to recall the Jetta and install proper breaks on it. As of right now VW is not going to help in this matter and I am stuck with a brand new car that I would not feel safe having anyone drive.
Please, if any of you have had this problem put it on here so I know there are others with the same concerns about this car.
