1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0 Liter
A great value for an imported German designed car from Mexico
Driver side door lock fell out at 70000 miles.
Coolant hose coupling on back of cylinder head leak at 85000 miles.
A/C compressor failed at 87000 miles, got one at junk yard for $50.00 and good as new.
Got this car from a repossession sale and was the first VW I've ever owned.
For the cost of this car, its been a great deal. It handles great for a four door sedan and gets great gas mileage.
For those mechanically inclined and can keep up with all the little things that go wrong, this car can last for a long time. Proper maintenance is a must for these cars, but not as bad as the "domestic" specials out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
