Bought from my Lease- BIG MISTAKE
By Melissa Economou on


1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


I leased my 96 VW Jetta and then
purchased from the lease BIG MISTAKE.
I've lost much money between payments
and repairs. I've had to replace my O2
sensor, timing belt, full brake job,
alternator, battery, coolant system
leak you name it all before 75000, then
my molding fell off while driving and I
almost got into accident with that. My
tire rims have chipped paint. Now my
check engine light comes on all the
time, I just replaced my engine belt
and still more problems to date. I like
the VW wagons, but I will NEVER EVER
buy VW again, the car is not made well
at all and very overated.

Best Features

Sunroof, rear spoiler, seats go down.

Worst Features

Glove compartment, trunk light, cup holder from the back seat in the front.
