Worst Car I Have Ever Owned
By Ron Franks on


2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


We bought this car for my wife and intitially we were thrilled - it was very cool and a lot fun to drive. After about two years and 20,000 miles the fun began - rear brakes, oxygen sensor faults, airbag switch faults, windows falling in the doors, cracked ignition coil harness (?), bad fuses, frozen doors in the winter, etc., etc., etc. I have owned many cars in my life and have never, ever experienced this sort of ongoing maintenance nightmare. I take care of my cars and never have a problem with investing $$$ to keep them running properly, but give me a break! Half of the things that went wrong with this car I had never heard of (and one of my other cars is a Saab)! Toyota's from now on!

Best Features

The rear tail lights will look really cool as they sink into the lake that I'm going to drive it into.

Worst Features

Stop producing such pieces of junk and apologize to everyone who has experienced this sort of agony. From reading the posts on this BB and others there seems to be many of us!
