1997 Volkswagen Jetta GL from North America
Best car I've owned
Nothing, I swear.
This car was (it was totaled in an accident) incredible.
I changed a headlight bulb and that's it. It never had a tune-up and it still ran like a new car. The brakes finally needed replacing at 100,000. Timing belt was changed, as recommended, at 60,000.
My mechanic used to joke that I had the only good one ever made. Well, I know a few other folks who had 'good ones" too.
34-36 miles highway and ran fine on the cheap stuff.
Fun to drive, very comfortable, great handling and super reliable.
Plenty quick for a basic four banger too.
Got out of 45mph. head on/T-bone collision without a scratch. Interior of car was untouched.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
