It's always been a great car. Everything on still works the way it did when it was brand new. I read these comments and sorry folks all these problems are created by trying to take the cheap way out in Preventative and scheduled maintenance. Tip for all you with trans woes, trans fluid breaks down just like oil, change it every 40K. Service it at the dealer they know best.
The quality of the interior. using hi grade materials has kept mine in like new condition even today people are amazed when I tell them it's a teenager
I bought my 94 GLX VR6 in September of
2003 with 103,000 miles on it. The
car was purchased in good condition, I
had to do regular 10 year expected
maintenence on it but nothing out of
the ordinary (repacked wheel berrings,
tune up, accessory belt, fixed a tiny
coolent leak, valve cover gasket, and
motor mount) the car runs great and
performs excellently. (My model was
made in Germany, not Mexico)
The impressive engine and quality
a glovebox, ive got dual airbags...i
guess VW didnt feel like squeezing one
Bought the 94' Jetta GLX in 2000 and
it only had 28,000 miles. Lots of
little irrating things have broken.
both window regulators for the rear.
Rusted around trunk, left rear blinker
is blown. Air bag not working....
Driver seat loose. Just plain
Sun roof, CD changer. Sporty look
Windows that work, large front seating
area. Parts that are affordable.
Airbags that WILL work. Next car WILL
NOT be a Jetta. Sorry VW you had your
chance... many times... and failed!
