I bought my 1998 Jetta as my first
brand new car. There are lights in my
dash that NEVER worked, the key didn't
work at first, I have a lot of rollback
even though I drive an automative, I
have had successive tire blowouts due
to a now recalled part, the car was
stuck in park for a week until it was
finally fixed, the alarm tends to short
out, I have had TWO electrical FIRES
from "closing the door too many times"
and have had other parts of my car fall
apart from the day the warranty ended.
Yes Jettas drive great and have lots of
great features, but you will pay in the
end for the lack of reliablity.
Fun to drive, lots of trunk room, great
for mountain driving, good fuel
economy, good stereo system,
