1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car new and it's always been fun to drive. However quality leaves a lot to be desired. I've had several annoying problems before and after the warranty expired. I've replaced: Coil Packs (several times), wheel bearings, Door Locks, Outside Moldings, & the Cooling Fan (twice). Driver side seat is broken off one of it's hinges and the Secondary air pump is loud as it can be. Of course all of these things are not cheap to fix. Most of my driving is Highway & I don't drive it hard. Is it too much to ask for a VW to last more than a couple of years?

Favorite Features

VR6 Engine. Fun to drive.

Suggested Improvements

Improve QUALITY!!!! Don't think I'll be buying another VW anytime soon.
