Not a good bet
By Mackey on


1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


I love my Jetta BUT...It is always
broken. I have had it for 30000 miles
and I have replaced almost the entire
ignition, not at the same time,
expensive seat bolts, the thermostat,
the CO2 converters, headlights, various
engine parts and fans, and the trunk
light will NOT work. On the good side I
have a chip in it and an intake. The
result is a throaty powerful car that
is very responsive and a blast to
drive. Its a blast to drive if you have
the car though, mine was in the shop so
much it felt like it was there way more
than it wasn't.
