My experience, and opinion, not fact; since VW is one of the largest, and may soon be the largest auto manufacture, but I would sell it. But I am very very jaded towards VW in general, same way I am jaded against Ford and Saturn.

I miss my Jetta(s). Sold one, traded one, totaled one. My favorite was a '93 with a 16v DOHC and tricked out 5 spd. Thats the one I sold. The one I wrecked did 3 full rolls, one end over end and one cartwheel (all in the same wreck) roof was like this / / but worse. Put 2 spare tires on it, rolled it back onto its wheels and drove it home. The handled great in the snow, not so great going 80 and doing an extreme turn to keep from hitting someone (pedestian walking in the street). No pics unfortunately.

I would like to have a 16V, right now I am running front studs and unstudded rear so I drift pretty good, but wow hope I don't do that!

UPDATE!

Totaled as of 3/21/12

On the way to the college library I got rear ended by a 95 Ford Explorer... Ouch, I would guess he was going 20-25 mph (VW tech who owns an Explorer agreed FWIW)








And the Explorer...




Drivers rear door got squeezed so I am certain it is totalled... Kinda sad

Unibody Jetta-0 Ford Explorer-1

The door works now, just slam it and sledge hammering will commence if I keep it but after I get a check from insurance.

cool, definitely check over the "frame" for major damage that might affect handling. Also check suspension but if it's all cosmetic I wouldn't worry about it.

Is there any crash comparisons between a Tacoma and a Jetta? You since dad knows best, Jettas are apparently safer.
