2000 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.8 turbo from North America
This car is fun to drive, but expensive to maintain
The temperature gauge went out at about 30,000 miles. The battery died after only 14 months. The driver's heated seat works only intermittently.
There is an air leak around the rear passenger side door that doesn't seem to be fixable.
This is a fun car to drive. A lot of performance for a 1.8 liter engine, and it always runs great. But service and parts are EXPENSIVE. I was going to add the CD deck to the Monsoon sound system. For just the deck, it was $400.00! I made the mistake of telling them to put in 4 new spark plugs at 40,000 miles -- this cost me $115.00, and the dealership in Ann Arbor could give me no explanation why it cost so much --- gouging taken to a new degree!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
