I'd never buy one again
By Elaina on


1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


This was my first vehicle. It was fun to drive, but, I'd never put a teenager behind this wheel. The biggest problem was that the car would just completely shut off while I was driving. I'd have to coast to the side of the road. Spent thousands trying to fix this problem, no shop could figure out what was wrong with it. Other not so major problems: check engine light- always on, a/c broke, radio system complete broke, the key would GET STUCK in the ignition-- no one in my family could get it out.. so I'd have to leave it unlocked sometimes, with the key in the ignition, and for a time, I had issues opening the trunk. Cute car, but so not worth it.
