Fun to drive, but not fun to own
By Robin M on


1997 Volkswagen Jetta Trek 4dr Sedan


We bought our Jetta Trek new in 1997.
We've had three of the power windows go
out (at 26,000, 30,000, and 34,000 miles),
replaced the clutch twice, replaced the
brakes three times, replaced the battery four
times, replaced both our power front door
locks, and now our alarm arms itself at
random while we are driving the car. VW
customer service also leaves much to be
desired. I thought I would love this car, and
to be fair it is fun to drive, but I will never buy
another VW because of all the problems
we've had with the car and customer

Best Features

At this point, very little about this car impresses me.

Worst Features

Fix the window problem, electrical system, and VW customer service.
