Needs more HP
By KRUZNBY on
Vehicle1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan
ReviewI had previously owned a '85 Jetta. I
loved that car so I thought I would
get another Jetta. The interior
layout and style is great as well.
The major problem I had with this car
is the lack of power. Even with a 5
speed, it seemed to take forever to
get it moving. Don't even think of
shifting at 3K RPMs, wait it out until
4K and you will be a bit happier. The
other problems I had in the 2 years I
owned it: 2 window motor controllers
failed, factory volume knob does not
respond properly, and a desperately
needed tune up. When it would rain or
just plain humid, the car would miss a
lot. I had to replace the cap/rotor,
plugs and wires ($400).
Best FeaturesStyling, handling, strong AC, nice interior, trunk space, gas milage.
Worst FeaturesPoor factory radio knobs, under- powered, more comfortable seats, cup holders only fit cans in the front, parts can be expensive, poor customer service (Southern States of Raleigh is horrible!!!)
