About a week ago, I was in a car accident (not at fault, of course! ). The other guys insurance company still has my old car, but I've been told that they will probably total it. With that in mind, I've been looking at other cars in my price range and since become obsessed with looking at '95-'97 Volkswagen Jettas. Does anyone own or have any opinions about them? I'm definitely looking for a 5-speed, hopefully with alloy wheels. Other things I'd like to find are V-6 and leather, but they're are a lot harder to come by. Here are a few that I have been looking at. I'm not sure of exactly how much I will have to spend, but It will probably around $5,000, give or take, as I may use be willing to spend a little more. This 1995 Volkswagen Jetta III GLS looks nice, with lower milage (compared to similar Jettas), but I'd like to get the price a little lower. 1995 Volkswagen Jetta III As with the model above, it is a "III" which, I believe, are made in Mexico, not Germany. I have no idea if this affects the quality of these models. This 1997 Volkswagen Jetta is very tepmting to me considering it's blue, it's a V-6, it has leather interior, and a low, low price. The negative? a Whopping 186,000 miles. *sigh* It's attractive but I worry how long this would even last. I still have a few days until I receive word on the amount of money I'll receive, but I'm just getting a little research out of the way.
