Fun German car

1997 Volkswagen Jetta Trek 4dr Sedan


I just bought this car a few months
ago and all I've really driven with it
since then is long trips on the
freeway. This car gets very very
respectable gas milage for the freeway
trips and its gearing is such that it
has plenty of passing punch even in
top gear at 70 MPH. Also this car is
fun, it may be somewhat underpowered
but it is certainly a car which wants
to be hustled and loves the twisties.
A+ German engineering in a resonable

Best Features

I love the stick shift transmition, much better than those in its major competitors. Also the trek package roof rack is a major plus for active lifestyle people.

Worst Features

The only thing i'd really like more on this car is power. But then can Americans ever get enough power?
