solid car but the litlle things!
By Cee Dubya on
1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan
Bought new in 1996. Replaced window
motors on all windows, now failing
again. Bad design. Door moulding
replaced 5x, come on adhesive tape?
Overall a great car, peppy, & cold AC
(esssential in the SW USA). I love the
road feel on twisties. Feels more solid
than same year Hondas. Quirks? Yes but
then again its a VW not a Honda.
Styling, looks better than Hondas. Fun
to drive even with 4 cylinder engine.
Gas mileage 30+ on hwy. Great stock
Dealer, I use an independent mechanic
because of poor car/customer care. Door
trim, window motors-bad engineering
from the germans.
