1996 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought new in 1996. Replaced window motors on all windows, now failing again. Bad design. Door moulding replaced 5x, come on adhesive tape? Overall a great car, peppy, & cold AC (esssential in the SW USA). I love the road feel on twisties. Feels more solid than same year Hondas. Quirks? Yes but then again its a VW not a Honda.

Best Features

Styling, looks better than Hondas. Fun to drive even with 4 cylinder engine. Gas mileage 30+ on hwy. Great stock stereo.

Worst Features

Dealer, I use an independent mechanic because of poor car/customer care. Door trim, window motors-bad engineering from the germans.
