1997 Volkswagen Jetta GT 4dr Sedan
Review
I've had so many problems with this car I cannot even remember them all. The tailpipe fell right off the car while I was driving once. The electrical system went out. The ignition switch had to be replaced, the door strips came off three times, the handles have broken off the glove compartment, the lights have gone out in the console. I have taken excellent care of this car from day one and it has caused me nothing but grief. NOP NOT BUY ONE OF THESE. My girlfriends 12 year old Honda Accord with 115k miles on it is twice as reliable as this Jetta was, even when it was new. I will NEVER buy a Volkswagen again.
Favorite Features
Looks cool, nice alloy wheels, good speakers.
Suggested Improvements
Workmanship is extremely shoddy and reliability is awful. Maintenance is extremely expensive. I spend thousands of dollars a year just keeping this lemon running. I'm thinking of selling mine and buying an old Honda.
