I will NEVER buy a VW again
By TK1 on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan


From day one, this car has been nothing
but trouble. I fell in love with the
looks (exterior/interior), but failed
to research warranty and reliability.
Things that happened: Exterior paint
has come off in some places, had to
have emergency brake cable replaced,
had to have spark plug re-wiring done,
had to get starter replaced (engine
died), and had to have muffler replaced
all under 50,000 miles. Tires didn't
last long, and neither did the brake
pads. Repairs have cost me $2,500 plus
and dealers were not helpful. Buyer
Beware...I think I'll go back to
Toyotas which never gave me trouble.
The new Camry we have is GREAT!
