Jetta will run forever never had
anything really wrong with it A few
typical things i.e. alternator but
nothing like engine/transmission
problems of any kind. Got
factory stats w/ blown head gasket
Not easy to find a good mechanic when
rarely needed had it for 3yrs 1st time
its had to go to the shop Im the 2nd
owner & this is the 1st time other than
oil changes its had to be in the shop
w/180k Not sure if thats a record
Interior/ body are good quality build.
Cant beat never less than 30mpg &
factory stats @ 12yrs quite an
achievement, built in Mex but 99% of
parts are from Germany Never, left
stranded, ever; not expected to happen
Hard to say, love the car. VW in my
genetic code man, really fun to drive
Should have put the antenna on the roof
like the GLI, Ive not seen a Jetta
(older Jetta) with one left on hood.
Possible VR6 option with a 6spd would
make it a real bad ass.
