1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought 04/2003 @ 86000mi for $4200. Now i'm at 101000mi and have repair bills over $3500. So far i've changed: exhaust, timing chain, tires, brakes & roders (i'm up for new brakes AGAIN). Transmission has about a month left. Stalls for no reason, especially in the rain. On cold days the key won't go in the door no matter how much WD40 i have. Check Engine light is on EVERY TIME I DRIVE THE CAR. Now my oil light is blinking and making that beep noise that i swear is werse than chinese water torture. Thank goodness my radio goes loud enough to cover it. Every machanic is baffled.

Favorite Features

heat gets scorching hot (but i'm sure it's broken somehow)

Suggested Improvements
