1998 Volkswagen Jetta K2 2.0 from North America
One of the best cars I've ever bought
The sunroof stopped sliding back. It will still pop open, just not slide.
It really needed a tune up. Once I did that, it drove like a brand new car.
Sometimes the A/C will make the engine die, and sometimes it won't and it runs fine.
Randomly the check engine light comes on, and after a couple of days it turns off; weird.
First off, I love this car.
For the little 2.0 I4, it is fast and handles great.
I have the K2 seats that are not real comfortable on long trips, but the heated aspect makes up for it.
I have not had to do any real big work to it yet. We all know that VW has their quirks. So be ready to spend some cash fixing it.
The badge on the car that designates it as a K2 was missing. Found another one online, but I had to search and search.
I bought this car on ebay for 2000 dollars. Which is a steal. Picked it up in Philly and drove about 1500 hundred miles home. A little risky since I had not even test driven it. This car is a champ and a rockstar!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
