: Jetta-Go or No Go?

02-05-2008, 12:14 PM
I am thinking about making my next car a Jetta. Ideally, I would look for a 2000-ish 2.0L, with a STD tranny. Are there any faulty/weak parts on this car? To get a better idea, I now have a 2000 2.0L auto Mazda 626, and while I love the reliability of the engine, the tranny on those cars-the cd4e-has brittle transmission-plates, causing premature tranny failure. Is there anything to watch out for on 97+ Jettas? Also, in terms of long-term reliability, how reliable are they compared to, oh say a Camry? Thanks in advance.

interior styling and heated seats are great, offers good gas mileage
but itís not good in snow and the outward appearance is not appealing

Heated seats, are those standard on all 2.0 models, or are they an option?
