1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car new in 1997. Since then I have had a few quirky problems (like the driver and passenger side door locks needed repair twice. The locks also freeze in the winter. The cruise control and the trunk lock also needed repair) otherwise I have had no major mechanical problems. I think the biggest thing to watch for is the front end alignment. The car needs to be aligned quite often, which could be due to the fact that I live in Maine and the roads are terrible in the winter, but...I have been through 4 pairs of tires in 6 yrs. Overall its a great car.

Best Features

I love the overall look of the car. Great ride. Very reliable.

Worst Features

VW needs to do something about the lock mechanisms, not only in the doors but the trunk as well. The cup holders are not well designed.
