Stick Shifts & Safety Belts - sadly, both are included with your rental. Don't catch the reference? Check out this Cake song:
--Blue Jetta TDI, diesel engine (great fuel mileage: ~40mpg)
--Manual transmission (stick shift): you must be competent with a stick shift to rent this car! Please don't ruin my clutch. :)
--Black pleather interior
--I've got a cable that will allow you to plug in your iPhone (or iPod or iPad) as long as it has the big plug-in slot, not the new tiny plug-in slot, and hear it over the car stereo.
--If you need to transport your bicycle, I have a 2-bike rack that can attach to the trunk.
--This car has LATCH for your child carseats, and you can use the key to enable child safety locks.
--There's an emergency kit in the trunk, with a couple tools, a fix-a-flat can, emergency flares, etc.
--The airbag light is always on.
--No CD player. (Actually, there IS one but it's disabled for the audio input.)
--You have to slam the passenger door quite hard, or else the car alarm might go off later!
--The antenna is broken. The radio still seems to work fine though.
--This is not a car with all the new-fangled bells & whistles. You have to manually roll down your window. You have to twist a knob to lean back your seat. But you aren't too spoiled for that, are you?
Note: when you refill the fuel, make sure you do so with DIESEL fuel. That's important! I can point you to a station near me that has diesel.
2001 Volkswagen JettaStick Shifts And Safety Belts154.53
Nikki's Jetta was a perfect rental car for our family's vacation. She was very helpful, a great communicator and a gave us a great first impression for our relay ride future. =) Nikki's car drives smoothly, gets great gas mileage and met all our needs and expectations. If only all of our travel needs were in KS. Thank you Nikki!
This higher-mileage Jetta drives quite well and has been reasonably well maintained, however the main benefit to renting this car is how helpful and nice the owners were. They were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. They picked us up from the airport and would have driven us back except our plans changed, which they were happy to accommodate. I would rent this car again
