1997 Volkswagen Jetta GT 4dr Sedan


I owned 2 VWs on the past, a 02 Jetta Wolfsburg, and 03 Gti , both 1.8t 5spds. I recently got rid of my newer truck to go back to No payments, and found a 1997 Jetta Gt black with black leather w/140k miles this past January. This car has been awesome, ive taken great care of her, since it was a 1 owner and interior is immaculate with no rips and paint looks new. mechanically car seems very sound, especially on the freeway, its very smooth. Ive had a few hiccups with car, such as gas gauge not always working or power door locks not working on driver side, but its expected with a older car. I plan to do a full overhaul and tune up to car in next 6 months, glad i finally own MK3 JETTA.

Best Features

interior, leather, theres no " blind spots" , 10 speakers which I upgraded to Infinity Kappas, great exterior styling, sunroof . just a comfortable car that screams "Road Trip"

Worst Features

Headlights are poor, and cost of maintenance and replacing oem parts.
