The 1995 Volkswagen Jetta A3 (Typ 1H) is a minor car in The Fast and the Furious series, driven by Jesse in the first film. This car is driven by Jesse (Chad Lindberg) although it is mention that his imprisoned father owns the car. It is first seen when Jesse drives up to Dominic’s store along with Leon, Letty and Vince.
The Jesse’s 1995 Volkswagen Jetta A3 does not participate in street races although it did participate at Race Wars when Jesse uses the pink slip to the vehicle to race Johnny Tran’s Honda S2000. Brian warns Jesse not to race Tran saying that the car has a $100,000 worth of upgrades. Jesse ignores him anyway and races Tran.
Jesse appears to be winning when he uses nitrous but Tran overpowers him by using his own nitrous and easily beats Jesse. Jesse panics and leaves Race Wars refusing to give up the vehicle to Tran. The car is seen again when Jesse arrives at Dominic’s house to plead for his help. Suddenly Tran and his cousin Lance perform a drive-by shooting on the house during which the car is shot up with Jesse being killed in the process.
The car was possibly impounded because it is never seen again in the sequels. This 1995 Volkswagen Jetta A3 has a Wings West bodykit and rear spoiler and KONIG rims.
