manual vs automatic

Asked by Jul 13, 2010 at 02:02 PM about the Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Should I avoid older Jetta's that are automatic transmissions?

I am looking for a 1998 - 2001 (newer only if I can afford it).

What does it cost to fix the transmission if it goes?

i just sold my 98 jetta i would deff recommend the 5 speed over auto just for the fact of performance the auto really lags and to repair an auto your looking at big $$$

1,075

go for the stick. it'll make you a better, happier person. and i'f an auto goes you're dishing out lots of cash.
