Those who give it praise now will
indeed curse this car in the future.
I have seen people judge their cars by
whether or not they were
stranded while driving. This car has
stranded me 6 times since purchased
in May 1999. That may not seem like
much to other Jetta drivers (who
probably have not been this fortunate),
but I can assure you that it has been
quite a disappointing journey for me.
I will not go into detail about what
has happened to this car during the
last three years, due to limited
space! Lets just say that I
have put nearly $5000 into this car
since after the 24000 mile mark!
I love the sound system and the
Better maintenance and part prices.
Plastic clips that hold the windows
need a major redesign. Seats could be
more comfortable. Cup holder needs a
better design. I have had major engine
problems, which required VW parts that
only the dealer could service. The
parts were overpriced.
