My last VW
By BC1943 on
Vehicle
1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan
Review
Briefly and to the point. I have spent more in repairs over the years than the car cost me to buy($15000). If I had sold it at end of warranty period I would have been ok. Electrical gremlins were many and often returned within days of "fix".. I finally put black tape over the annoying light. Reliability is highest priority for me and VW has lost many good customers due to this issue. I still use the car for dump runs and local use but never for long distances.
Favorite Features
VR6 engine is excellent and burns no oil between changes(5000 miles synthetic) even after 150000 miles.
Suggested Improvements
Made in Germany is your best choice for reliability!!
