Red VW Jetta

1996 Volkswagen Jetta


Property of elightbo Added Aug 2008 Location: Milwaukee, WI

We bought this thing before I was really interested in fuel economy (that happened before the big gas price hikes). So, it typically only gets 24 MPG. We will probably replace it with a Honda Fit sooner than later even though it's pretty fun to drive. Not a bad car for a 96!

Update...just sold it. Good memories.

Our family only owns one car and I'll be biking to work shortly.
