1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

This car was amazing while I owned it. I purchased it with about 60000 mi on it. In almost 4 years the car has given me little or no trouble whatsoever. I have had to dish out only about $1000 over and above regular maintenance costs. I was in an accident in 2001 and I almost totaled the Jetta. It needed over $5000 in repairs but when I got it back it was just as good as ever. A robust, stout, little beast... that's why I choose VWs. Overall, it's an amazing car...which is why I am buying a 2001 Jetta now! Great trunk space, excellent handling, and VW reliability have made this car a winner in my eyes. Keep up the build quality VW.

Best Features

Smooth manual tranny, excellent trunk space, great handling, VW reliability and toughness, practical yet semi-luxurious.

Worst Features

Back seat space must be improved...my 6 ft friends always complained about that! Better acceleration!! The 2.0 is very slow!! I can't wait for the VR6. Cause compared to this slug its a rocket!
