This '98 Jetta is my first ever car.
As I purchased this vehicle "late in
life", and did not drive at all until a
year ago, I don't have anything to
compare this car to. BUT, it is fun to
drive and definitely has a lot of pep.
Not the best on gas mileage, but then I
don't drive to work, and mine does have
6 cylinders (Vroom-vroom!). Parts can
be pricy, so it's good that VW's have a
good reliability rating. I bought this
car used and had I done more research,
would have preferred a new (w/warranty)
car. A good, solid (and well-sealed)
Size. It feels compact, and I also feel
safe in the car, like it's well built.
My sun/moon-roof and spoiler make it
a "cute" little car.
Built-in beverage holder is too small.
Water bottle barely fits in side door.
