Never Again
By Fitzy on


1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


For starters they have the worst
customer service on the planet.
Secondly, I have had more problems with
it than I could even fit into this
review. Engine light constantly comes
on and VW charges $97 just to tell you
why, side molding has fallen off both
side doors multiple times until I
finally used epoxy, my door lock on
both front doors broke and the lock
would spin in place instead of unlock
my doors, my passenger side window fell
off the track and into the door and
broke into pieces, my driver side
window no longer works, cruise control
broke, A/C no longer works, brakes went
faster than I would have imagined, and
even the mufflers are garbage!

Best Features

Sunroof and big trunk

Worst Features

Scrap it and start over. This thing is so unreliable I don't think there is much to build on besides the VW name.
