Great car. Not cheap to Keep
By Roger! on


2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car used with 80,000 miles. I love the handling, comfort, styling, power, and feel of the car. But it’s not cheap to fix. I don’t mind putting in a new clutch and alternator after 140,000, it’s expected. But does EVERYTHING have to cost $800 - $1900+ in labor to fix? You can’t get to anything to fix it. I think I’ve had most problems listed by Jetta owners. Here are mine: • Front end almost rips off at curbs (even low ones) • Glove box falling off • Center console broke • Window falls into door • Coil pack cracked in cold weather • Emission warning (and engine light) never go off • Cooling system leak • Shorted speaker • Gooey plastic interior parts

Best Features

Love the handling, comfort, styling, power, and feel of the car

Worst Features

Cheap interior parts. Poor support from VW. Costs too much to keep. Will not own another one.
