1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0 from North America
Car was possessed
Oh man, I thought that the car was possessed. It had many electrical issues. Many times the car would just start blowing its alarm and horn. The lights would flick on and off.
It had problems holding a charge.
Brakes felt weak.
The passenger window just got stuck.
Check engine light stayed on and never came off.
Car did have good pace and shifted well.
Car came with a turbocharger, but the engine started having problems and needed to be rebuilt. I lost the turbo in the process. The mechanic said that the car had many electrical and computer parts, which meant it would always be in the shop longer and cost more money.
The car looked great and it had good pace to it, but it had too many issues. I know it had high mileage and a check engine light when I got it, but I have read other reviews on it and they had the same issues I did.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
