1995 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


Problems from day 1 with auto
transmission (computer chip), which
eventually needed a total replacing at
52K, window crank broke after 3 month's
ownership, timing belt went prematurely
(53K), suspension is as stiff as a
board, lots of torque steer, brakes and
struts needed replacing at every 30K,
was beginning to have electrical
problems at 60K. Was in the shop every
4 to 6 weeks beginning at 52K. NOT ALL
problems mentioned above were covered
by the 10/100 warranty. Got rid of it
at 60K and bought Japanese. See many
of these cars in used car lots (new car
and mom and pop) - RED FLAG.

Best Features

Comfortable front seats; however, back seat comfortable, but could use more leg room. The sunroof's tilt and slide feature and the large trunk.

Worst Features

VW needs to hire some savvy engineers, which looks like they did after Jetta III series.
