2002 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car two years ago, and
sold it last Saturday. I wish I had
saved myself the $9000 (!!!) it
depreciated. This is a bad car, very
cheaply made. Within the first two
weeks, four plastic items simply fell
from it. Add to this cheap quality the
tiny back seat area, the lack of grip
on pronounced curves, where you always
have to end up correcting in too sudden
a manner, and the completely dumb
electronics (the boot closes itself
automatically all the time, even with
the car open; the e-key is horrible and
unintuitive...),and a horrible
operating manual, and you have a recipe
to go mad.

The designers should just sit on an old Honda Civic or a Subaru Forester and take notes on how to design and build a car. A shame and a waste of money.
