by Dukes on Aug 6, 2004 Vehicle: 1996 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan
Bought this car back in 2000 with 56K
kms based on "good reviews" from CR and
thinking this car would retain value....
Paid 16K (can), now worth 6K.
Mostly mechanical problems such as
bearings (x2), water pump (x2), crappy
exhaust & suspension, AC repairs (x3).
(~5K of repairs)
Not at all the reliable vehicle it was
made out to be. I will never again buy
