1997 Volkswagen Jetta GT 4dr Sedan


I bought this car and literally a couple months later everything started going bad. I've replaced the exhaust system, shocks, cam shaft sensiry, spark plugs, fuel injectors, the whole coolant system, and the list goes on. The style of this car is awesome, and the interior is really cool too, but it's been non stop trouble for me. If you want to own any Jetta around this year, you might as well buy a Mercedes Benz b/c you'll spend the same amount. Honda and Toyota will never leave you hangin. (The spark plug wires alone were $100.00, which should be $20 bucks)

Best Features

Really good stereo system. Great sunroof. Really big trunk and the back seat folds down. The style of the interior is really great.. Short shifter, green dash lights, all black inside. The rims are alloy rims are really nice.

Worst Features

Like I said, the interior and exterior style are really slick for that year. But that doesn't do you much good when your on the side of the road. And the strips fall off the doors all the time.
