1995 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


This is a fun car to drive, but expensive to repair. I bought it from a friend who bought it new; it sat through a New England winter without being driven & took a real beating from it! I now live on the West Coast, & feel that because of the expensive repairs (over 3K on new clutch, timing wheel & belt, ball bearings, rotors, brake pads, muffler, fuel line, air filter) this would be a better car to buy on the West Coast. Be sure to take ANY Volkswagen/Audi to a mechanic who specializes in German cars. Being familiar with only Japanese & American cars, some egotistical mechanics made matters worse for me by messing with the electrical wiring.

Best Features

speaker system has held up well, still good gas mileage (average 28 mpg), very solid & "safe feeling"

Worst Features

The interior design is awkward- especially the cup holder; this has since been improved in the Jetta.
