1995 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
When my wife and I bought this car it was on impulse. It was the first car we saw on the lot and the only car we really looked at. Like all cars we've had our moments with it, but all together...it's the best dang car I've ever had. I try to do all my own mechanics work on my vehicles and the only major thing I've done to this VW is change the timing belt (at 110,000 miles). I bought it with 80,000 miles on it. It's currently at 168,000 miles and running just like it had when I'd bought it (with general automotive maintenance and care). It even is getting the same and even sometimes better gas mileage (31.5 mpg in town).
The engine and it's power, reliability, stability, handling, stereo, ride, look, potential modifications/upgrades and more...
When the 2.0 engine ever goes out, I'll upgrade to the VR6 engine (YEAH!)...
