My vehicle is old with a lot of miles, but the fun of the car is worth it.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL Sedan

A few engine problems. Struggled with coolant issue for a while (leaks and such). Other than that I like it, it is turboed with a ko4 and down piped. It is quick to accelerate. However I do not drive over 70 due to loud noises from the wheel at certain times. It is pretty comfy with leather seating. The heat no longer works, so driving in the winter is very hard to accomplish.

I really like the blue dashboard lights.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL Sedan

It's expensive to repair and the parts can be hard to find. Also it has a lot of electrical problems. I do appreciate the gas mileage it gets and is very comfortable to ride. If you're thinking of buying one make sure to do your research on the vehicle.
