1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan

Review

I always wanted a Jetta,and I still think they are the slickest looking vehicles. Unfortunately,I have had countless problems with it. Most ofthe problems are electrical in nature.The cruise control went two years ago,and no one seems to be able to fix it. The volume goes up when I try to turn it down. The power windows are always in need of fixing. The inside door handles don't work in lower temperatures.Many are the days I have had to crawl to the backseat to get out. Once,on my commute home, the hazards came on and the horn started beeping for no apparent reason. Recently,my horn started beeping if I took a left hand turn in temps above 80.

Best Features

It looks fabulous

Worst Features

It needs help with the electrical. Also, a cup holder that holds a normal sized cup of coffee would be wonderful
