1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I love this car even with its problems. For the money the Jetta is fun to drive, has good power and looks great. The car feels solid and well made for just $16K. Once I learned how to drive the car right, I had plenty of power. You just gotta know how to use those 115 horses. The issue I have with the Jetta: expensive to maintain, battery exploded at 24,000 miles, switch for air cond sometimes doesn't work, wheels covers and reflectors fall off, 3 front and rear wheel alignments, parts are expensive, VW service departments suck, options and add-ons are too expensive. Overall, I love this car.

Best Features

Boxy design, roomy interior and trunk, the european feel. I love the sound of the engine when up and down shifting.

Worst Features

Better cup holders and less road noise.
