1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan


I always wanted a Jetta,and I still
think they are the slickest looking
vehicles. Unfortunately,I have had
countless problems with it. Most ofthe
problems are electrical in nature.The
cruise control went two years ago,and
no one seems to be able to fix it. The
volume goes up when I try to turn it
down. The power windows are always in
need of fixing. The inside door handles
don't work in lower temperatures.Many
are the days I have had to crawl to the
backseat to get out. Once,on my commute
home, the hazards came on and the horn
started beeping for no apparent reason.
Recently,my horn started beeping if I
took a left hand turn in temps above

Best Features

It looks fabulous

Worst Features

It needs help with the electrical. Also, a cup holder that holds a normal sized cup of coffee would be wonderful
