Big Disappointment
By fielder3rd on
1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
I bought mine used w/ 23,000 miles. Looked good,ran fine, fun to drive. Then, as soon as i got over 80,000 miles the thing started falling apart....literally. The third brakelight in the rear window fell off. The side moldings on both front doors came off. The passenger side front door lock assembly came out with the key one day. Then the crankshaft broke. I had it rebuilt to the tune of $2200. I foolishly thought that if i had it repaired the car would be good to go for a long time without another major repair. Wrong. The ECM went bad @ 100,000 miles. I traded the thing in on a 2000 Maxima. Good riddance.
Favorite Features
looks good,fun & sporty
Suggested Improvements
Pay attention to quality in the details. Side moldings and lock assembleys are simple. Get it right. VW's could be so great if they didn't try to save pennies by cutting corners on quality.
