Worst Car I Ever Owned
By Haz on


1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


This car was the never-ending money pit! Engine had to be replaced along with two clutches. Window motors were constantly breaking. Electric side mirrors stopped working. Glove compartment hinges broke. Windshield washer system stopped working. Molding was falling off. Seat recliners never worked. Emergency break broke several times which resulted in the car rolling into the street and finally - a LAKE! The repairs were incredibly expensive compared with US or Japanese made cars.

Best Features

Great looking car. When the engine worked, it was a sweet ride.

Worst Features

If you own one - get rid of it!
