According to Pioneer
The DDX 319 for 2008 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan with in-dash CD changer is not compatible with your car
Where did you get info that it is ?

It is a KENWOOD DDX 319 (I didn't mentioned the brand in my original question)..Thanks.

I am not satisfied with this answer. The KENWOOD radio was traken of a 2007 Golf, which has the exact same electronics as the 2008 Jetta. The Crutchfield page says that the DDX319 "fits your car", and it does say teher is a "newer model", which means the latter is discontinued, as electronics get obsolete within months, but it does not mean that they no longer fit OLDER cars, like mine. I would keep researching. I would like my refund please.

I received confirmation from Crutchfield that the reciver IS compatible with my car, and have quoted the parts I need to install it. Please let me know how to claim my refund. Thanks.
