1997 Volkswagen Jetta Jazz 4dr Sedan


Review

My 17 year old daughters (twins) have been driving this car for 1 1/2 years. Friday night my daughter lost control of the vehicle, flipped twice, hit a tree, hit a rock wall and landed on the roof of the car. The exterior of the car is completely totaled. The interior of the car is completely intact. The frame work around the top and sides of the car held it from crumbling around her. My daughter walked away from the accident and has only 9 stitches in her knees (and I believe that is from crawling out of the car.) VW is built tough and will be the car of choice for my children to drive.


Favorite Features

Sturdy frame.

Review

I absolutely loved this car when I got it new. I drove it with 115,000 miles with no problems. Then the 1st transmission died (manual). At 146,000 miles the second one died and I am ready to retire it. I still love the car but its not so much fun without the 2, 3 and 5th gears!


Favorite Features

This car is fun to drive. It looks great and has a comfortable interior. It has good pick up and got me where I needed to go for almost 10 years.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission, transmission, transmission. Oh, and bigger cup holders!
