1995 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0 from North America
Once the engine warmed up the check engine light would come on and the car would start to bog down severly under acceleration. Tried to have the codes pulled and replaced what they said to, but problem persisted. It ended up being the distributor.
Clutch cable snapped.
Exhaust system burned itself up.
Leaks oil from everywhere.
Seats badly worn.
Brakes start to squeak badly every 3000 miles.
Engine pings very loudly unless I use the best premium gas around.
This car seems like it is going to tip over going around corners and still has a very bumpy ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree oil from everywhere. I keep blowing ignition coils, door locks keep on seizing, window up down problems, car bogs intermittently like it's going to stall, rusting all over yet well taken care of, cannot get dash lights to work even with many new bulbs, the engine is rattling loudly with acceleration, I think the engine is on it's way out. Plus the car was expensive last year at $5500.00. Never another VW.
