solid car but the litlle things!
By Cee Dubya on


1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


Bought new in 1996. Replaced window
motors on all windows, now failing
again. Bad design. Door moulding
replaced 5x, come on adhesive tape?
Overall a great car, peppy, & cold AC
(esssential in the SW USA). I love the
road feel on twisties. Feels more solid
than same year Hondas. Quirks? Yes but
then again its a VW not a Honda.

Best Features

Styling, looks better than Hondas. Fun to drive even with 4 cylinder engine. Gas mileage 30+ on hwy. Great stock stereo.

Worst Features

Dealer, I use an independent mechanic because of poor car/customer care. Door trim, window motors-bad engineering from the germans.
