97 GLX Reliability issues

Vehicle1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan
ReviewDoor alarm problem - car arms itself whenever the rear door is opened or that electric window is operated. Need 2 keys to get it started. Engine Sputters - Car sometimes hesitates and runs poorly for a few days then is fine for weeks at a time. Side door molding strips keep falling off. Buy some doublesided tape ahead of time. No big deal to fix. No place to put stuff. Ex: Cup hldr under ashtray so unusable for anything taller than soda. though. FIX ELECTRICAL PROBS! VW's notorious for this. You'd think theyd have solved by now.
Best FeaturesWhen it runs, it has great pickup and handles well. All around, a fun car to drive. Has lots of features heated seats, mirrors you wouldn't expect at that price.
Worst FeaturesVR6 gearing same as 4cyl. OD w/b nice so no winding engine on Hway when you'd rather have better mpg. If sunroof could use more hdrm. At 6'1" head nearly touches. At night dash light reflects on windshield, annoying.
