1997 Volkswagen Jetta Trek 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought our Jetta Trek new in 1997. We've had three of the power windows go out (at 26,000, 30,000, and 34,000 miles), replaced the clutch twice, replaced the brakes three times, replaced the battery four times, replaced both our power front door locks, and now our alarm arms itself at random while we are driving the car. VW customer service also leaves much to be desired. I thought I would love this car, and to be fair it is fun to drive, but I will never buy another VW because of all the problems we've had with the car and customer service.

Favorite Features

At this point, very little about this car impresses me.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the window problem, electrical system, and VW customer service.
