So far (I've had the car since Sep 99),
I've had the following go wrong:
O2 Sensor out - took 2 days to replace
Center arm rest latch broke
Driver's side window fell into door
Two weeks later (after the factory
recall repair was supposedly done), the
right side window fell into the door
Mass airflow sensor had to be replaced
(this seems to be a common one)
It's not that this is such a bad car.
I have the VR 6, and it drives really
well, has great power, and is quiet.
It's just that with a VW, I expected to
feel like I had a reliable car, and I

- Get rid of the roller recliners on
the front seats
I own a New Jetta GLS, I drive a lot of
miles per month and the car hasn't given
me any troubles at all.I love my Jetta
and I plan to keep until it doesn't want
to run any more...(years and years from

I'm not the slowest thing on the road.
Handles the road just like my Porsche
944. The parts aren't cheap, but you
don't have to buy them often. Watch
the oil changes. Dirty oil clogs the
Everything inside breaks...glove
compartment, rear ash tray, cupholder,
and the design of the mirror knob is
poor. If there are multiple drivers
who are different hights and have to
change the mirror, too much handling
will break it.
it has great handling and a tight
THE ANTENNA GETS STOLEN OR BROKEN OFF,
IT SHOULD BE SMALLER AND SHORTER LIKE
THE AUDI OR BMW ONES, OR IT SHOULD BE

Over the course of 4 years I've had
many sleepless nights with this car,
from the cup holder to the glove
compartment to the electrical system.
NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. Same year my wife
bought a Civic, the Civic has seved us
extremely well. This year we kept the
Civic but sold the Jetta and got a new
2004 Civic. Will never buy another
