I'm 17 and looking for a first car

Asked by Dec 13, 2015 at 07:56 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking at cars around 5k. I been looking at a
manual 03 VW jetta with 120k miles on it, but
some people say they are amazing but yet others
say their crap and just fall apart.. I just want
something that looks sharp, sporty,  fun to drive
and good on gas. And later in the future mods on
it to make it good faster

Personally i would not suggest buying a jetta for a first car especially because they are high maintenance and they are very expensive to fix if they need to be fixed. I got one for a first car and ive had nothing but problems. :(

A Honda or Toyota that has been owned and maintained by an adult might be a good choice. Don't buy a car from any of your friends!
