VW Jetta looks and rides nice.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL Sedan

My car is 16 years old and has been wonderful. Best car I ever owned. I credit VW with making a great car. Rides nice and have been happy with how well it has served me. Would recommend VW to anyone that wanted to learn more about such a brand. Will probably buy another VW down the road.

My Jetta experience has been great overall

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL Sedan

This is a really great car. It is fun to drive and gets excellent gas mileage. The Jetta's performance and reliability has been good overall. One of the main problems I recently started having would include trouble getting the car to start when it is cold outside.
