If you have a VERY big walet
By Sambolton on


1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


I got this car used last year with 90,000 miles on it. Of course it had its share of use before my ownership, but this is just stupid. The cup holders are a joke. they could barley hold a can of soda when i was merging on the highway. and the seats (not power) are very difficult to use. Engine has NO power. 0-60? yeah it could be a while. and panels falling off the outside of my door. that was horrible. Very unreliable but good in snow and if you plan on hitting any cars going about 40 mph you can plan to walk away alive. VERY sturdy front end. saved my life absolutely. Even with that said, I have put way too much money into this car, so plan on having finances ready for the unexpected!

Best Features

Big trunk.

Worst Features

Cup holders. CD changer. Engine! Auto trans can decide what gear to be in... it's begging for a stick shift!
