1998 Volkswagen Jetta GT 4dr Sedan


I have had nothing but problems with my Jetta. It seems like everyday something goes wrong. Electrical, brake system, clutch, motor mounts, axles, ignition, key switch, heater and a/c controls have all failed within 50,000 miles. The wheels oxidize to the hubs and can not be removed without pounding on the wheels with a sledge hammer. This is not good when you have a flat tire. The car is a total nightmare. Very unreliable. Parts are extremely expensive. I can not recommend this car to anyone.

Best Features

good sound system, handles well, body style

Worst Features

Where do I begin. The whole car and associated systems need to be totally evaluated and revised to make the vehicle more reliable.
