1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


I purchased this this 1997 white VW
Jetta GLS a month ago and I am pretty
pleased with the car. I had to fix
some minor problems such as the brakes
and the wheel alignment but those are
typical repair costs. This car
doesn't have good acceleration as an
automatic and is frustrating if you
want to cut lanes on a freeway.
However, once you hit the gas pedal,
the pickup speed more than offsets its
poor acceleration, as I don't have any
problems hitting 90-95 with this car.

Best Features

Pickup speed Boxy exterior Seat position Reliability Roomy trunk Excellent stock sound system Moonroof

Worst Features

Poor acceleration Green Dashboard light unattractive Steering is a bit tough Position of horn
