Reliable, Accurate handling, Economical!

1997 Volkswagen Jetta GT 4dr Sedan
This car is a great performer! I will
never sell this car especially it's my
1st car. I have put a ton of things
(even a whole drumset in the trunk) and
I have taken care of it really special:
K&N filters, new imported brakes (not
dealer brake) and it's still running
perfectly fine at 115000 miles. It's
fast - I can beat anyone on highway and
it's slick looking. As long as you
maintain it just right, it's a very
special car. GT is really rare - get one
if you can!!
Strong alloy wheel (much better than
after market at reasonable price).
Engine is strong. Manual transmission,
and the clutch just last too long, just
like the brakes (replaced my brakes at
110k). The fog light is slick for a 97
car less than $20k.
If I had more money, I would put Xenon
headlights, lowered Eibach springs,
strut bar and tie bar, and perhaps even
a new performance chip.
Suggestions for VW: better dashboard
mount so it won't rattle at 2500-3000 rpm.
