Vehicle

1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

71,000 miles... 4 exhausts, starter (@26k miles, dealer said was not surprised.. and wouldn't cover a new one), altenator (@45k miles, not covered), power steering pump, radiator, 3rd set of tires (alignment does not hold), body molding falls off, trunk leaks, randomly stalls in the rain (plugs, wires, dist. cap, solenoid, etc.. replaced 3 times), AC unit died, interior lights behind dash died (~$500 to rip out dash to replace $3 bulb). This thing is less reliable then the old land rover I have, and maintance costs are about the same.

Best Features

better gas milage then an old rover with 150k miles. Radio will get loud enough to drown out exhaust noise next time it falls off.

Worst Features

Take auto-mechanic class before attempting to build a car.
