Pros: Keeps your mechanic gainfully employed
Cons: Keeps your mechanic gainfully employed
I traded in an '88 Jetta for a '96 back in 200. What a bad mistakes. This car, in my opinion isn't even remotely the same as my '88. I could list what has gone wrong, but I think that listing what hasn't gone wrong would be a much shorter list.
What has not gone wrong;
The car has not exploded.
I was once a huge vw fan, said that is all I would drive. Now, I no longer drive anything since my jetta, which has fallen so far in value that selling it is useless, is never on the road. This car is like being in a bad relationship that is impossible to get out of. I keep thinking that after this next repair, I will be all set for some time, everything will be good. Wrong. It is never ending, the car will be a never ending drain on your bank account & patients. Get a Subaru instead, vw has plummeted in quality. I have contemplated having a bumper sticker made that says "I have a Jetta; can I bother you for a ride?"
