1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan

Review

I 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 Features

Styling, handling, strong AC, nice interior, trunk space, gas milage.

Worst Features

Poor 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!!!)
