2002 Jetta Sportwagon encountered gas in oil supply at 86K miles Feb 2012. 100 miles after oil change, level was one quart high on dipstick. Reduced but repeated 4 days later. Suspect fuel injector, but prior Scirocco's lasted 183K miles without this potentially harmful event

Do you drive a 2002 VW JETTA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
