OK, I am now officially in desperate need of some Valium or Xanax. Are you kidding me, the car I drove had no ABS? As in none, not even on a single wheel? I can't believe how obtuse you guys can be, what if I had crashed it? I have to admit, the fact that the tires emitted quite a distinctive shriek whenever I was too optimistic about a green light seemed to be a little peculiar, but I didn't give it too much attention at the time.
As a matter of fact, I was too busy to find anything to like about the Jetta's interior to notice I almost had no brakes. Yes, I know brakes still work even without that anti-lock system, but it's better to be safe than sorry, right? Speaking of sorry, to my knowledge there isn't a single blind driver in the world. Because, apparently those Volkswagen interior people designed the center console to be used primarily by blind persons.
Those grey and black touches everywhere inside could never appeal to someone with at least a shade of good taste. Not to say that blind people have no taste, but hey, they can't see, right? So why would they use so much ugly plastic everywhere on the dashboard?
The exterior isn't particularly pretty either, and the added chrome bits on the grille don't exactly transform it into a Cadillac. I might have overlooked odd exterior lines if it weren't for that dreadful mental hospital interior. The only thing I actually like about the Jetta is probably the name. It sounds like something fast and Italian, which is a pretty nice combination, isn't it?
Tell you guys what, next time we're testing something that might kills us at every traffic light you might want to leave me go to my regular Pilates class or something. I'm too young to die, especially driving a "People's Car". It would be bad for my image, you know? I think maybe that Xanax pill you gave me is kicking in...
