1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

After having an 89 Accord for 10 years it was time to try something new since the body design on the Hondas began to look like suppositories. I really liked the style of the VW. This is not enough reason to buy a VW. Within 3 months the transmission acted up and the dealer tried to tell me it wasn't covered under the bumper2bumper warranty. A year later the ignition coil cracked and had to have that replaced which the dealer did do but the cleaning ($200) wasn't covered. Now there's either a bearing, the tension pulley for the timing belt or the AC compressor has gone. Never had these problems with my Accord. Not worth the headache.

Best Features

Body style except the loose moulding on the doors. Straight seat position feels good on the back.

Worst Features

Stop having them built in Mexico.
