2000 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
I HAVE JETTA GL 2.0 IT HAS 221000 MILES ON IT. ITS A GOOD CAR BUT VERY DELICATE CAR. IT HAS TO HAVE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE ON IT ON A REGULAR BASES, AND BE ON THE TOP OF CAR SERVICE ALL THE TIME. IF YOU LIKE TO FLIRT AROUND WITH A CAR THAN IS GOOD BUT IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE JUST PUTS IN GAS AND CAHNGE THE OIL ONCE A WHILE THAN THIS IS NOT YOUR CAR and stick with Japanes cars.
changed the timing belts, cranck sensor, changed lot of plastic connections in the engines. radiator replaced and the AC changed compressor changed with a new BEHR unit.
used Mobil 1 oil. changed the transmission fluid
every other year. German cars have to have preventive service done on them.
Fun car to drive great handling, Ok gas mileage for a 14 years old car.
changed all the fluids every other year by meyslef.
Do not buy this cars if you dont know anything about maintenance.
