1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
Loved the jetta at first. Bought at a
steal with 43,000 mi. At about 80,000
had TONS of problems. Brakes always
squeak (replaced twice), electrical
problems with AC, Engine lights on,
brake system lights always on,and O2
sensors replced. Actually failed
emissions this year (Car had to reach
600 degrees before sensors turned on).
Transmission problems shifting from 1st
to 2nd gear. And finally, the car
wouldn't shift into 5th gear reliabily
at all. Oh yeah, the driver side lock
just fell right out!!This is odd
because have very good service
records. Thank god I had a great
Looks nice, good stereo system,
comfortable to ride in.
Fix transmission problems and everyone
I know with that Jetts has had problems
with the O2 sensors.
