This Car Saved My Life

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I totaled my Jetta in a head on collision with a guard rail after a tire blew, and walked away with minor bruises. I then turned around and bought the same exact car. People can say what they will about cup holders breaking and plastic peeling, but I say quit complaining. You either are a VW person or your not, and I am 100%. I had to replace my battery, timing belt @ 120,000k (which was a choice to avoid problems), brakes, and my battery, but these are all things that should be fixed on any vehicle with over 100,000 miles. I am a VW believer all the way.

Best Features

The bodies sharp appearance, and the excellent get up and go.

Worst Features

The plastic parts in the interior definitely needs some work.
