I got in to my first car accident 16 days after I bought my first Jetta in Sept
2000. It was totaled and I am convinced saved my life. On the other hand,
my new VW jetta (Oct.2000) drives like a dream but I have been hassled w/
the driver's seat cable breaking, the arm rest lock breaking, the engine light
randomly coming on and dealing w/ a service team that thinks you have all
day & every day to spend with them by turning what should be one visit into
two. Due to these dumb things happening I am about to drop $1350 for the
extended warranty (2001 models get the 24000mi or 2yr jippy warranty).
Drives like my dad's Audi (OK almost--that German car feel). Interior. Great
I hear the warranty has improved w/ the 2002 models. My local
service--Stohlmans, Fairfax, VA.
