Automatic Transmission sucks!!
By hatemyjetta2 on
Vehicle
1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
Review
Definitely had trouble with automatic transmission at around 99,000 miles. Even though still under warranty, the dealer screwed us and VW did not stand by their warranty. Also had problems with it quitting while driving in rain. VW was never able to figure out the problem after several shop visits, but my husband did--it was the ignition coil $240.00 parts. Also had to replace ignition and the drivers door lock-only now we have 2 separate keys to start and open the car door. No doubt its a good little engine--but auto trans and electrical sys clearly has problems. A stick shift is probably your best bet.
Favorite Features
handles well, good steering, rides well, huge trunk,lots of leg room, good motor, good air conditioner.
Suggested Improvements
FIX electrical and automatic transmission problems. Put in glove box and trunk light. Get rid of general lee door alarm. Fire all customer service representatives!! Get dealers that dont lie!!
