2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


This car was lots of fun to drive and I had an extended warranty, or else I would have ditched it. It always had body parts breaking. The electrical system was always having shorts (one time it went crazy and my trunk kept popping open while driving, blinkers worked only sometimes, doors locked on their own, etc). Endless mechanical parts were replaced. I hated the feeling I got when a new warning lit up on the dash. Just before the warranty expired I had to be towed. All of this happened before it even reached 91,000 miles. If I hadn't owned a Fiat 27 years ago, which showed me how truly bad a car can be, I would have been tempted to give my Jetta an even lower reliability score than I did

Best Features

Fun to drive. It's looks. Good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Interior and exterior body parts kept breaking or dropping off. The electrical system had poltergeists in it. I had to have lots of mechanical things replaced, starting right after I bought it used with 39,000 miles on it.
