1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan

Review

I had my Jetta from May 1996 to February 2004. After the first 3 years, side moldings started to fall off ($$$ to replace at the dealership). So did the replacement ones, and the ones that replaced those. Catalytic converter oxygene sensor failed twice. Very cheap leather inside, wears off quickly. Dailight running lights go through bulbs every 2 years.

Favorite Features

Cheap ($21k I believe) for a German V6 car in 1996. Worked as long as it worked.

Suggested Improvements

Good for the first 3-4 years, then issues start. No German quality engineering here!
