Model Reviewed: Jetta GLI
Strength:

Looks, I had people I never talked to come up to me and compliment me on my car. Handling. If you're lookin for a fast cheap car, that's reliable, buy this car. although i've heard complaints about jettas, maybe the gli's are immune from this? Mine was. But anyway, I'm talking about that short period before they changed the design completely but added a body kit and those beautiful wheels and red brake calipers

Weakness:

the stereo had really weak bass, I guess you could fix that with a sub, but still. low ground clearance, coming out of parking lots with steep inclines is a challenge, but maybe that's just me...
and oh ya the place where most U.S. sold jettas are manufactured is also a downer... I wish they all just came from Germany.

Great car. loved it. wish I never got rid of it. Only wish I had the manual because those are like .6 seconds faster in 0-60
p.s.
don't buy this car if you're older, you'll look ridiculous
