by NotaJettaFan on Oct 22, 2002 Vehicle: 1996 Volkswagen Jetta City 4dr Sedan
I brought my 1996 Jetta GL used wtih
only 27,875 miles on it with 2 yr
warranty. I had always heard good
things about Jetta's but this car has
been trouble since about the time I
brought it. Within 6 weeks, all 4 side
moldings had to be replaced, and they
all came off within different times
requiring me to take it back to shop.
Then the ignition had to be replaced as
well as starter. Then the driver's
side door lock, fuel injection, etc. It
was in the shop every 3 to 4 months.
What a pain. I will never purchase
