1995 Volkswagen Jetta 40th Celebration Ed. 2.0L gasoline 4 cyl. from North America
GREAT car for the money
I bought this car from an AutoNation dealer and it had a few problems to begin with.
First, when you put the car into park, you had to pull the hand-brake in order to keep the car from rolling backwards due to a transmission problem.
Cruise-control was inoperative.
Brake light (in top of rear window) would stay on, all the time, regardless of whether or not the brake pedal was depressed.
Dash light was not functional.
Seat-belt would not pull out of door (so I couldn't put it on).
Ignition switch would stick so key could not be removed when necessary.
I love this car. It is beautiful and it drives very smoothly. Too many 'little' problems for the miles. A little frustrating.
I love the features like power door locks, CD changer, 4 spd automatic, fold-down rear seat, power sunroof, etc... for the money.
Don't take the car to a VW dealer for service if you don't have to. I had the worst experience with a dealership in the Dallas area. Don't let this blow the VW rep. for quality. I just had a bad experience. I know many people who have had VERY good experiences with their 'people-cars' and I'm not giving up on that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
