1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


I have owned my Jetta GLX for thirteen years. It is fun to drive, goes like a soldier through snow, and has minimal rust for its age. I had a head gasket problem which necessitated an engine replacement (or so my mechanic said), but that is the ONLY repair I have had other than scheduled maintenance. Interior is top quality, still looking fine today, the trunk space is great, and I have had no problems with exterior body trim. I am still running the original muffler, though the fore intake pipe on the first unit is broken and the car is a bit noisy. Thank goodness for cage straps which make it able to delay the replacement a bit longer. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Best Features

Sunroof, leather seats, the BOSE radio.

Worst Features

None. I am not a lazy person who has to have motorized seats. It's a car for DRIVING, for crying out loud.
