1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car in July 2003 with 52000mi. I drive all over the state, at least 500 mi a week. I was told by the dealer that the kick in the engine between 2md and 3rd gear is normal. Well, at 60,000 mi the kick has become fierce and my check engine light is on. The glove compartment lock is busted, too. Also had problems with the bearings on the wheels, and serious issues with the poor presentation of my car at the dealership. And don't even think about having more than 2 people in the backseat!

Best Features

Interior cabin, cruise control, handling. Under the hood is for dummies, so checking fluids is not a guessing game.

Worst Features

Cup holders are TERRIBLE, cheap overall quality on parts. Highway driving is OK except for what sounds like a gust of wind through my backseat.
