1996 Volkswagen Jetta Trek Limited Edition 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought my 96 Jetta TREK new in May of 96 - 13 years later, still driving it. It is a GREAT car. Has never let my wife or me down - very reliable. As far as performance, it isn't a race car..but is quite peppy. The torque is amazing and the power curve suited well to the car. It isn't hard to go quick in this car with its wonderful handling. Car now has 211000 miles and no odd noises, vibrations, nothing. I have changed the oil every 3500 and wit each change run a can of SeaFoam thru the fuel also. Only repairs - replaced timing belt (for preventative), clutch, O2sensor. Not bad for 13 yrs and over 200k miles. This car is my best bud!
Favorite Features
Sporty looks, handling, sunroof, came free with the purchase of a TREK mountain bike =>
Suggested Improvements
Front cup holders too small and placed in shifter way - maybe good while sitting..but not while driving.
