1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


The car is in the shop as I am writing
this- Havent had the car 6 months
yet! This car is not reliable. Its
been in the shop 6 days now and I am up
to $4800 in repairs, including new
starter and major electric
malfunctioning and transmission. If you
do not have the extra cash for these
pricey repairs BEWARE!! And if you have
your heart set on it, then make sure to
purchase an extended warranty because
you can count on breaking down. Car
left me stranded with a horn that would
not shut off- had to be towed. Brakes
squeaks have a mind of their own.
Guzzles gas like crazy. I would never
purchase another VW again.

Best Features

Sunroof and sound system.

Worst Features

If VW produces such sub-standard vehicles they should offer their customers better manufacturer warranties.
