I bought this Jetta at an auction with
unknown problems. After purchase and
repairs, it still was a steal! Stereo
is average, creature comforts are
average, but RELIABLE!!!! This is my
second VW, first was a Fox that I
drove for 14 years before giving it
away (it's still running), and I have
since bought a Passat. Love them
all! Repairs can be pricy, but you
can't beat the dependablility of VW.
Trunk space, fuel economy, gusto, and
overall German engineering.
Terrible front cup holders (also bad
in the new Passat), exterior body trim
This car is very very reliable. I have
82,000 miles on it and hope to get
82,000 more since I like it so much and
don't know what I could replace it
with. I love driving it. I love the
way it grips the road. After 8 years
the interior still looks great too.
Cup holder is in bad spot. Lock
cylinder has fallen out twice.
I love my car. It's the best car I
could ask for. It's precision handling
and compact size make my life so much
easier. I have so few worries when I'm
on the road. It's quite comfortable
inside and it makes me feel almost
pampered with all the interior
conveniences. The only things I could
ask for would be a bigger center
console and more options for
positioning the wheel. Other than
that...this car is a dream.
I love the convenient fold down rear
seat, rear drink holders, electric
adjustable moon roof, and locking
center console. As well as the central
Perhaps a bigger center console, more
wheel positions, and raisable drivers
seat. And a glove compartment.
Overall not to shaby a ride. My two
biggest problems are that the seat is
horrible. My lower back hurts after
just a short ride. Any longer my right
leg might go numb. Bad lumbar support
system!!! My other complaint is that I
live on a hill and a steep one at that.
I find that the car strugles to climb
my hill. I have to floor the car and
slug it uo the hill. Fast on the
highway but a pain on any incline!
From what I hear an extended warranty
might be a god idea!
The sun roof is great! Like that I
can't lock my keys in the car. Great
factory speaker system!!!
Needs more low end. Gotta fix the seat
Not a good thing! How about a coast on
the cruse controll. Glove box,what a
