1982 Volkswagen Jetta LX from North America
Great little car
The water pump leaks, the cd player doesn't work, heating doesn't work signals burnt out, headlights burntout all electrical problems, but keep in mind that it is an old car.
Good cheap car with many problems, but the problems could be easily fixed with a little bit of knowledge and money. is very cheap on gas, gets great mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The electric problems are from a bad windshield seal, probably in the bottom drivers side corner, right over the fuse box. Nothing a little silicone caulk wouldn't fix.

I had one of these as my first car in 1998. By the time I was done with her, she had over 400,000 miles on the engine, replaced all CV shafts at least twice, O2 sensor went out about every year like clock work.
Otherwise, for a gas saving little car, this thing was a beast!... There wasn't anyplace I couldn't go, I was making snowy drives over passes that only trucks and 4x4's were attempting and this little car did it better. KUDOS!!! to automotive engineering on this car.
I'd like to see another in the same class do 400,000 miles.
