"I bought this car when it was 3 years old. Now, some 6 years later the only real problems I've had with it are the cruise control & window motors breaking. (I replaced 1/year for the first 4 years I owned the car.) Other than that everything has been great: excellent mileage, good intelligent design & handling, huge trunk. I guess that me maintaining the car well has paid off..."
"I bought this car when it was 3 yrs old. In the 8 yrs and 110k miles i have owned this car other then regular matinence the only problem i ever had was the starte went out. That was like 150 dollars. Other then that i took good car of him and he has taken good care of me. I will probably look for a new jetta when he passes on to the get big VW junk yard in the sky."
"My car now has 160k miles on it. I loved this car and it ran great between the break downs. I am finally at the point that i cant wait to get rid of it. It has been one problem after the next. It runs for a few ,months and then something ELSE goes wrong. I have had it since 2003 and it ran fine for the first 2 years but the last 2 years have been constant spending. Your lucky if yu can find a part for the car under $200 and then good luck finding a shop that works on European cars for a resonalble price."
