Goodbye VW
By Dukes on

Vehicle

1996 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought this car back in 2000 with 56K kms based on "good reviews" from CR and thinking this car would retain value.... Paid 16K (can), now worth 6K. Mostly mechanical problems such as bearings (x2), water pump (x2), crappy exhaust & suspension, AC repairs (x3). (~5K of repairs) Not at all the reliable vehicle it was made out to be. I will never again buy VW.

Favorite Features

Solid feel to the car, handling and huge trunk space.

Suggested Improvements

Exterior trim is brutal. Duct tape holds better than the crappy double sided tape put on the first place! Cup holder can barely hold a mouthwash cup....
