I financed this Jetta used for around $11k and ended up spending over $13k in repair receipts over the short lifetime of this car. Every possible part on this car had to be replaced at least once, and it was constantly towed to the shop. We just got rid of this for a reliable Honda.
turbo was fun
quit using tons of electronics; they work well when the car is new, but prevent the car from making it past the 150k mile mark
