Don't waste your money or time

2002 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this vehicle new and within one month; there has been nothing but mechanical/electrical problems. At least every other month something else was and still is breaking and needs repair. The trade- in value is horrible; however after this mornings episode; I made up my mind to finally get rid of this piece of junk. The latest break was found when I went to get gas. The tank release button on the door broke and the gas door can't be opened. After looking throughout the car and trunk for an 'emergency release button'; none could be found. I drove the car to a local station; warranty expired; so this cost will be added to the long list of headaches that came along with this car.
The appearance of the car is nice.
Leave the key in the ignition and hope that a desperate carjacker will hop in and take it.
