1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0L from North America
A sometimes mobile piece of JUNK!
It should read was has not happened to the car! In a nutshell the windows don't work temperature sending unit wiring, coolant problems wiper motors, yes. Motor oil leaks broken seats lots of small ongoing problems.
The only thing I can say about these cars is I like the look of them.
I will never have any involement with these make of vehicles again even if it was given to me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I own a 1997 Jetta GLS, 2.0 Automatic, loaded with options, and I regret buying it more than any other decision I've ever made. You are absolutely correct, Piece of Junk. I feel your pain.

I pretty much bought my 96' Jetta to take off to college with me! BIG MISTAKE!!! I cannot count how many times the windows would fall down and sometimes go back up- but when they didn't, I couldn't afford to fix them. I spend a lot of time in college with cardboard and duct tape on my windows so I could save up to get them fixed. That car cost me more than you would believe and I didn't get a dime back because the Class Action Suit was only on window regulators after 99. I would not buy one agaian not only because of the poor mechanics, but because of the lack of integrity of the company.
