The Jetta that couldn't be killed

1998 Volkswagen Jetta K2 4dr Sedan
Review
I purchased this car new and have put almost 200,000 trouble free miles on it. The fit and finish of this car is on par with anything made currently and with minor suspension upgrades has been a blast to drive. It may not out accelerate most cars in a straight line but it corners great. The only major repair was the transmission which nuked at 159,000 miles, but I didn't expect to have it last that long. I would reccomend this car to anyone looking for a inexpensive, fun, reliable, economical, great looking car. It would be a safe first car for a young driver. Someone buying a used one should check service history and make sure window regulators are in working order.
Favorite Features
The great ggas mileage (almost 30 mpg), looks, reliability, interior fit and finish, and buttons galore. This car feels very sturdy when compared to other comparable cars.
Suggested Improvements
This car is a little over-engineered for the price which means some repairs are costly (clutch). But this makes for a sturdy safe feeling car. I highly recommend upgrading the suspension and getting the best tires you can afford. Those two upgrades make the car feel tons better.
