1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


I got this as my first car, and so far most of the repairs are just routine maintenance. New tires, brake pads, and exhaust pipe welding. It leaks oil, but not very much. I think all the problems with my Jetta were neglect from the previous owner. It's a fun and peppy car that in my opinion, is cool looking. I have grown up around VW cars my whole life, so getting one was nice for me. Overall, I like my Jetta.

Best Features

The boxxy body, The nice transmission, and the interior is pretty nice too.

Worst Features

This year of jetta cars was assembled in Mexico with German parts. I think they should have left the assembly to the Germans...
