2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan


Do yourself a favor and don't buy a jetta. My VR6 has been in my family since it was purchased in 2001 (it's a 2000). I paid my brother 5,000 for the car in 2005 which was a steal (or so I thought). As of now, in 2009, i've spent almost 5,000 fixing it. I'm a regular at the shop. I've replaced, like many other Jetta owners, sensors, breaks (way too often), water pump, clutch, struts, some more sensors... The glove box and cup holder broke within the first two years of use (Can't Germans even engineer a cup holder?). All in all, from sensors to cup holders, it's not much more than faulty junk.

Best Features

It's a fast car, when it's not in the shop.
