Hard to find fault with it, but not roomy enough, front and back
Switch on brake pedal to enable start went dead.
Air dam below grille broken loose at time of purchase--difficult to keep in repair.
Slight problems with remote---codes to open door locks, except driver's, went out with dead battery,stayed out even when batt restored, dealer charged for restoring codes.
Best car I ever owned. beautiful handling/ride/comfort. quiet. adequate power, quite economical (fuel) previous car we liked & performed well ('88 LeBaron) but no air bags---100K miles on it. this Jetta built in Wolfsburg, perhaps better workmanship. until now couldn't ask for better dealer support but now has changed hands & not looking too good.
If I could find another one from Wolfsburg, I would probably buy it. (bought a Vega with 30K miles & drove it mostly trouble-free for about 100K) apparently lots of people out there (including dealers) who are trouble-magnets.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
