We have a 1996 VW Jetta for sale. Built for Lemons. Running, driving, shifting, stopping, all that. A pile of spares. Just finished NJMP with no serious issues (alternator failure, swapped it and right back on track). Runs strong, handles well, easy and cheap to maintain. No significant leaks. Trans doesn't grind. Drives straight. Suspension is tight. Wheel bearings are good.


Turn key car ready to go with no updating or big repairs needed.
