1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Had car since 1998, so I I've given it a fair chance. The main problem with is the electrical. Only one window will go down, 2 don't work at all and 1 will go down 3-4 inches. Radio stopped working, sunroof quit, inside dash lights don't work and new fuses don't help. Often get this fried smell from some electrical part but goes away. Replaced: brakes (twice), starter, cooling system and fan burned out twice, outside molding won't stay on, alarm will go off for no reason. It's basically a green timebomb - I never know if I'll make it someplace.

Favorite Features

1) the seats are comfortable. 2) Plenty of leg room 3) I can leave it unlocked and no one will steal it (unfortunately).

Suggested Improvements

Repairs cost A LOT.
