Caught on fire!
By bad jetta on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Do yourself a favor and do not even
consider purchasing a Jetta. I have
painstakingly taken care of my Jetta
for the past 4.5 years. One day, after
not driving it for hours, my car just
caught on fire and was destroyed. This
happened because of faulty electrical
components. VW told me that this is
not uncommon and that they have had
many complaints about this problem.
However, they are not offering anything
to me to compensate for my lost car
because it was out of warranty. By the
way, my Jetta only had 40,000 miles on
it. Hope this helps...
