Should've bought a Honda
By Guni on


1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


After having an 89 Accord for 10 years
it was time to try something new since
the body design on the Hondas began to
look like suppositories. I really
liked the style of the VW. This is
not enough reason to buy a VW. Within
3 months the transmission acted up and
the dealer tried to tell me it wasn't
covered under the bumper2bumper
warranty. A year later the ignition
coil cracked and had to have that
replaced which the dealer did do but
the cleaning ($200) wasn't covered.
Now there's either a bearing, the
tension pulley for the timing belt or
the AC compressor has gone. Never had
these problems with my Accord. Not
worth the headache.

Best Features

Body style except the loose moulding on the doors. Straight seat position feels good on the back.

Worst Features

Stop having them built in Mexico.
