The MK5 or A5 platform car consists of the Jetta, Rabbit, GTI, and Jetta SportWagen.The MKV came out as a 2005.5 and finished up with about model year 2010. They had their share of common VW issues too. Today we are talking about their biggest failures. It is also the first new car to come out after I became a VW tech. It was also great because the architecture of the car systems was like a light version of the Touareg.
