1996 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


I bought my 96 Jetta GL in the
beginning of January, used at 56k
miles, in 2003 as my first car. I've
had some trouble with it since I bought
it 8 months ago, probably due to the
previous owner's neglect, but I love it
regardless. So far I've replaced all
four tires, repaired an oil leak, re-
glued side moldings, and replaced its
brakes. The transmission isn't exactly
top-of-the-line, but what more can you
expect from a 4-cyl? Still, I love the
car. The sunroof is great, and the
trunk is roomy. Overall, I'm glad I
picked it as my first car.

Best Features

sunroof, exterior design, heat & A/C, roomy and comfortable, fun to drive, huge trunk.

Worst Features

glove compartment, bigger console and cup-holders, and an illuminated dashboard (my air controls don't light up)
