My current cars are an 01 wagon (5speed)and an 04 Aero, both of which I plan to keep forever so you can see I've been out of the loop regarding newer cars. Forgive me if I'm stating the obvious
but it seems more and more that manufacturers are trying to eliminate as many formerly do it yourself jobs as much as they can.
My son just bought a 2016 VW Jetta and none of the fuses and relays are labeled either at the box nor even in the owners manual! So this means doing a simple thing like checking a fuse requires a trip to the dealer and a service charge, unless you want to go through every fuse and relay looking for the culprit. Is this the situation with all newer cars these days or is it just VW? How discouraging.
