"We bought my wife a brand new 1997 Jetta and love it so much, that I bought myself a new 2001 Jetta. My wife's car now has 135,000 miles on it and it is still running strong. My 2001 has 81,000 and has not had one problem. We love our Jetta's and will only replace with another Jetta when these ware out."
"I've had an 88, 90, and 99, haven't had time to even upgrade because it runs great. Just change the oil and put gas in it and it will run forever. Have over 350,000 miles on my 88, and my 99 which my daughter drives now to college has over 200,000 on it and still feels new. I recommend the Jetta to all!!!!!"
"An excellent automobile in nearly every respect. The diesel engine is very snappy and gets nearly 45 mpg. Has lots of space. Only possible negative is not really confortable for 6'2" driver. Has very short turning radius."
