1998 Volkswagen Jetta K2 4dr Sedan


I have owned my jetta for about a year got it with 137k replaced the struts pads cleaned the rotors replaced the belts and got a new exhaust. Given how old the car was with the miles all that should be expected I now have 160k plus and I'm replacing the clutch and motor mounts but the car Neva has left me stranded always starts is sweet in the snow and will eat a stock civic. With mods will keep up wit fast cars. Relatively cheap to fix if you can dyi. Its got a good amount of torque for carrying hills but not so much top end for speeding tickets if your looking for a decent looking out side a very Nice inside and and decent lil 4 banger this is what your want v-tec virtually tourqeless economy car

Best Features

low rpm torque good for hills and saving gas the interior looks much newer than the outside heated seats great corners

Worst Features

more simplicity to design too many special tools than domestic or hondas don't need. depending on the problem could be costly a 6 speed tranny for highway cruising
