1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan
I bought my used Jetta about 4 years ago and I still love it. I don't think I can go back to a 4cyl ever again! This car is fast and fun to drive. Problems: side moldings (one fell off, the other one about to). Paint looks awful (but I live in So Cal desert), exterior molding on front windshield disintegrated. Blew a coil last year and now the heater core is kaput. Very expensive to fix. Cupholder is a joke. And my heavy foot doesn't help the already low MPG. Mostly it's just normal problems after 11 years. Plus I drive it hard. But depite this, I am deeply attached to her - I had a Honda before and nothing compares to the driving experience of the Jetta.
Favorite Features
Huge trunk, comfy seats, fast, handles well, looks cute, dependable, fun, 6-disk CD changer, 134k miles and still running smooth.
Suggested Improvements
Crappy exterior door moldings. Cupholder good for holding change. Instead, I put cup b/w e-brake and passenger seat. Bad MPG (maybe it's just me)!
