1995 Volkswagen Jetta Owner Comments

Jetta 4-cyl

Well, I' had some serious problems with the 1995 VW Jetta III. First, I had to put 2 new struts plus a whole new exhaust system. Next, the instrument cluster failed to work. It was taxing on the entire transmission, and it costs over $450 usd to repair. On my way home from a 2 1/2 hour tri the car stalled for no apparent reason. I had to push the car off the road, and when I checked the oil I was shocked to discover I barely had half a quart in it, after having an oil change less than 1200 miles ago. I got the car home, and they told me that I had a blown head gasket that cost me $900 usd. I got the car fixed, and it was running fine for a while, and then all of a sudden it started stalling at random moments. One time, I was on a nasty mountain road, with no place to stop, I almost hit a rock wall, I was barely able to control the vehicle. I had it towed to my mechanic, and they were unable to fined the cause of the problem. It took them 3 times to find out that it was a clogged fuel pump. I also have a dummy air bag light that no one can figure out, and no matter how many times I asked my mechanic could not figure out why the battery light kept coming on. Another problem was the windshield cowl that protected the car and engine from debris. It was completely dry rotted, causing water to leak into the driver's side foot wells. My most recent problem has been been the front passenger side window regulator. My back driver's side window has been broken since I got the car, but this wa sa new problem. Apparently, you could not buy just the window regulator, and you have to buy the motor as well. I'm tired of the car, and it was unfortunate because I love driving it. It was a nice looking car. All of these problems happene dthe last year, and it cost me over $3,500 usd to have them fixed.
