Review

I bought my 2002 Jetta used with only 32000 miles on it. A week after my purchase the brake lights didn't work...which was a recall so I took it to the dealer. Two months after owning the car my temperature sensor went out. A month after that my triptonic steering needed to be replaced which was about a 900 dollar fix. A few months after that I had to have the carbon cleaned out of my car another 800 dollars. This car is so fun to drive it is a shame it is so unreliable. The turbo was a lot of fun for a young driver like myself. I loved the car but it didn't love me back. I now am happy with my Toyota xB.

Favorite Features

Turbo! and the comfortable interior

Suggested Improvements

Needs to be more reliable!!! This would be the perfect car if it didn't require an expensive repair every couple of months. My car had only 51000 miles on it and I spent 5000+ fixing it.
