We have noticed that there are many inferior quality Tail lights on the market. We have researched other tail light manufacturers and are only selling what we believe to be the highest quality, best fitting, aftermarket tail lights available. So don't be fooled by cheaper made imitation Tail lights. Go with superior quality!

This Volkswagen Jetta Tail light makes a great replacement and has good cost savings over a dealer unit.

Replacement tail light for a 2001 VW Jetta
The tail light was an exact match and fit perfectly. The delivery of the part was fast and was well packaged. I highly recommend 1A Auto, they want to make sure that you have received the correct part, that it was in perfect condition when it arrives, and that it installs correctly. In fact their installation videos will save you a lot of time.
