1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
I bought mine as a cert. preowned over
two years ago. I just recently
replaced the muffler and a wheel
bearing.. my first repair since i got
it (the dealer replaced a few sensors
when I bought it to make it CPO).
overall extremely reliable, great city
car and feel solid on the highway.
This is my second Jetta, and prolly
won't be my last. So long as I stay
in shape and don't require a typical
big butt comfy interior, I should be
happy with the sparse VW.
Also, my first experiance with a CPO
has been great. I thought it would be
a rip off, but I think they really did
make some key repairs AFTER I bought
the car to make it more reliable.
Kudos to the Cooley VW staff in East
great heat and a/c. easy to work on
(assuming you have an honest mechanic
with access to parts). great interior
design. Nice solid clutch, decent
acceleration, great steering and
turning radius (like all VW's)
like all lower line VW, much of the
little things are made of platic, and
break (a/c vent for instance). It
good because you can very easily
replace almost all these items
yourself. It's bad since you'd hope
they could make them more reliable.
