I bought my Jetta new in the summer of
1997. The engine, transmission, brakes
and handling have never let me down. I
am absolutely amazed at how well the
major components work and how poorly
the other components function.
Since, I've owned it, I've replaced the
side molding (twice), the rear tail
light, and an interior light. The A/C
recirc button malfunctioned, the
passenger side locks freeze every
winter. Once the passenger side lock
actually came out as I pulled the key
out of it! Several other little
problems as well. This can be a very
enjoyable car to drive, just be
prepared for all the little repairs
that neeed to get done every 6 months..
Handling, ride, smooth gear-shifting,
FIT and FINISH!!!! VW -- pay attention
to detail and you'll have a lot more
repeat buyers!!! Customer Service is
