Ugh. This car. Nightmare.
By Jaemoney on
1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
So, on the whole this car should be put
in one. Cheap quality: I've noticed
many of you Jetta drivers are also
missing your side moldings. in the last
year: Towed 3 times, the coil blew,
alternator went, timing chain broke,
distributer broke, wires replaced
twice, muffler fell off, trunk-lock
mechinism broke off, breather tube
cracked, O2 sensor replaced twice, oil
sender unit cracked, paint is coming
off, plastic knobs in the interior are
coming off, strange burning smell
coming from the rear wheels (mechanic
can't figure it out). Not a great car.
Poorly assembeled, cheap materials. The
electrical system is jumpy. Bulbs often
blow and get me pulled over.
... I'm hard pressed. The seats are
Overall quality. I don't think I
overpaid for the car initially, however
the repairs cost me a lot.
