1997 Volkswagen Jetta Trek 4dr Sedan
So, my wife has never owned anything
but a VW. When her '88 Fox GL wagon
finally went over the hill, we bought
this car, and we love it.
The Trek edition is beautiful with the
flat 5-spoke 14" rims and the rear deck
lid spoiler. Keep wax on it and the
Fiesta Red will shine forever.
The 2.0L SOHC 8V engine is fantastic.
Don't let the uninspiring 115hp fool
you. It's the 122lb/ft of torque that
makes this car fly. You want a 5-speed.
Throw on some Koni adjustable
shocks/struts and you've got a European
Optional Clarion 6-disk CD changer.
Unless you lock the doors with the key
from the outside with a passenger door
open, throw your keys in the passenger
door, and then close the door, you
cannot lock yourself out.
Buy yourself an OBDII code reader for
$67-140 and you'll save yourself
hundreds in dealer diagnostics. The
check engine light comes on for
scheduled services you don't need. The
code reader can turn the light off or
tell you if you have a real problem.
