2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 from North America
Good for the money
I really haven't had much of anything go wrong (2001 Jetta GLX VR6). I have read some horror stories and have been glad my car is being nice to me. Yesterday the EPC light came on, but it continued to run just fine. After some research I figured out that I have no brake lights. And I saw that there is a recall on the brake light switch. I am hoping nothing goes wrong with it beyond that (I saw some postings about it not able to get out of park). The only other strange thing was the passenger window fell down and there was a recall on the window latch too. Oh and it smells like crayon... another gift from VW, I guess it could be worse... I just pre-warn people before they get in.
I have seen some nasty stories. I bought this car without any research. It runs great and overall is a good car. Handles well and the only upkeep on it is the regularly scheduled maintenance's. I think I lucked out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
