Not a reliable car

2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


3rd time trying to post this - maybe
Edmunds is screening??? The car is fun
to drive, is good-looking and powerful,
but a pain in the butt. Problems with
brakes, windows falling out, oxygen
sensors (plural!), stereo, A/C, you
name it. There is a reason the labor
is cheaper in Mexico. Maybe the car is
DESIGNED in Germany, but it isn't MADE
in Germany. Unfortunately a test drive
will not reveal the problems; living
with the car will though.

Best Features

Power, handling, exterior appearance.

Worst Features

Reliability, across the board. Have the car assembled by people who know what they're doing, or at least paid enough to care.
