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