1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

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 mechanic!

Best Features

Looks nice, good stereo system, comfortable to ride in.

Worst Features

Fix transmission problems and everyone I know with that Jetts has had problems with the O2 sensors.
