1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0 Gasoline
A nice looking hunk of junk!
The back passenger side power window broke, two weeks after I bought the car. It cost me a little over $400 to replace it.
Next on the list, a month or so after I bought the car it need a complete tune up.
Once that was taken care of the transmission started shift very hard, which I still have not gotten taken care of.
Then to top it all of the front drivers side power window broke.
I love this car, but yet at the same time I hate it. I love the way it looks, drives, and handles while it is working. But let something break and you will be paying out of your nose for the repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yes, A VW Jetta is a great looking car.
As long as you park it and NEVER drive it, you'll love it.
If you drive it, then you are in for many problems and an empty wallet.
I drove a Jetta GLX VR6 for a little over a year... Nothing but trouble, cost me nearly as much in repair cost as the purchase price of the car!!
I now drive a 1996 Volvo 850 that is GREAT! Very fast and fun to drive, leather interior, and best of all it doesn't break down!!
