Piece of Crap
By CB on


2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


My wife & i bought this car with 45k, from day one, the car has been a piece of crap. the car died 7 days after we bought it. after that the mechanical problems, engine light on. for some reason the passenger door won't open unless its from the outside, the trunk release dont work. the engine lights stays on. catalytic converter replaced light still on, new engine mount. engine light still on. engine rumbles the car shakes more than a rattle snake. car in the shop now, needs new wheel bearing, complete tune up $1200. 4 time this year car been fixed. car needs oil change every 1500 miles. right side speakers blew up. Never again will buy a VW. They are worthless.

wow! that's a lot of things wrong with the car! I have been looking at Jettas but kind scared now. However, one thing I have to point out is that the back door not opening sounds like you have the child safety lock on...
