1998 Volkswagen Jetta K2 4dr Sedan


This is a a fun car but when the shocks wear out, as mine have it drives like a waterbed when you push it hard, it is fast off the line but it is overall a slow car this one really needs a turbo....:) The protective door moldings do tend to come loose, and my car is have some issues with door pulls that turn white in the sun... other then that, super reliable, easy to work on, and a head turner even when in factory state, and most of all those heated sport seats in our cold canadian winter..:)

Best Features

heated seats, awesome 8 speaker sound, recaro manufactered heated sport seats, good looks, standard alloys

Worst Features

a faster engine, wish the 1.8 turbo was out already...and sportier suspension, and a standard CD player...
