Review of VW Jetta
By Blendermix22 on
2000 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
Bought car upon college grad drove it four years. Scotchguard did not prevent staining of water spill on passenger seat or fading from sunlight. Timing belt problematic from beginning, don't expect good or adequate service from Kingston VW. Went in five times before they actually agreed to fix it. Brakes replaced twice in four years, check engine light was on most of the four years due to faulty O2 sensor that was never fixed properly. Space is deceiving- not much room in backseat, trunk is big but opening too small to fit items. Revs too high (when in 5th on the highway, sounds like it's in 3rd). Once ownership ended (returned vehicle) all communication from VW ended as well(no follow-up).
Blue lighted dash. Saved on gas mileage.
Better material needed for small buttons inside car. FIx RPMs (revs too high). Go back to the old Jettas, they were more reliable!
