1996 Volkswagen Jetta Diesel TDi 4dr Sedan


Review

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 VW.


Best Features

Solid feel to the car, handling and huge trunk space.


Worst Features

Exterior trim is brutal. Duct tape holds better than the crappy double sided tape put on the first place! Cup holder can barely hold a mouthwash cup....
