I got this Jetta when I was sixteen. I'm almost nineteen now, so I've had it for almost three years. This is my first car, I bought it used from a sealership with around 93,xxx miles on it. I wasn't into cars at all when I bought it, I just wanted something comfortable, safe, and fuel efficient. Once I started driving this car, I realized how much I loved it. It was so interesting and beautiful to me. I started just going on drives to blow off steam. One day, I went on a drive and ended up driving next to a middle aged man in the exact same car. Same color and trim. I watched him driving (badly) and thought, "is that really what I look like in this car?" I started thinking about how these cars are just cookie cutters, and how I could make it my own. Sooner or later, I started modifying my car and learning how to fix things and take care of it. Now I'm obsessed with cars and can't get enough of them, all thanks to my Jetta!
