1998 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


I got this car used with 64,000 miles on it last summer. It has decent acceleration and handles like a sports car. The 2.0 liter engine gets OK mileage but it could be better. I have had a few problems with this car but nothing major (eg: new window motor, cruise control doesn't work right). It gets around well in the snow and is perfect for tight parking spots. The interior is very comfortable considering its small size and the buttons and controls are very user-friendly. The automatic tranny shifts great, the engine is good, and the ride is smooth.

Best Features

Superb handling, large trunk, Euro-sport sedan styling, great transmission, 1-touch power windows, comfortable seats, and overall performance. Also, the metallic green color looks really nice and so does the interior.

Worst Features

Cupholders in a less stupid spot, body-side moldings that actually stay on the car, better sound system, more rear leg room, and more in-cabin storage.
