Must have lots of $$$ to drive by Dave on 02/20/2007. Trim: 1996 Volkswagen Jetta Trek, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Excellent turning radius, decent gas mileage, no rust, zippy.
Cons: 120,000 miles. Lots of expensive repairs, all at least $300. ran good until about 100k miles, everything just started breaking every couple months, replaced: clutch, exhaust system twice, radiator, oil leak, heat shield, etc. now the head gasket is cracked, whats next? Very hard to work on unless your a pro volkswagon mechanic. I've had 2 volkswagons and both have had the moon roof break and the side molding peeling off.
Overall review: If you have at least $15,000 to blow on maintenance then this is your car. It drives great if it 100% maintained. Maybe I jsut got the abd one out of the batch, i hate this car because of many many repairs, so many that i can't remember them all.
