Finally got caught up on maintenance for the wife’s Jetta. New wheel bearings in the front and replacement trunk latch in the rear. $922! Yikes, I forgot how expensive VWs are to keep. Thankfully, we’re still under extended 3rd party warranty. So the total damage out of pocket was a far more palatable $100.
Normally, I equate extended warranties to buying air. But, in this case the expensive warranty we opted for on the Jetta is actually earning its keep. I think we passed the total cost of the warranty a few repair sessions ago.
