1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL from North America
Smooth ride with some initial headaches
Air conditioner was broken upon purchase. Very expensive to fix.
Leaking oil flange upon purchase. Covered by dealer's 3,000 mile/3 month warranty.
Factory radio unit was faulty upon purchase. Replaced with third party CD deck.
Throttle body cleaned at 78,000 miles.
Distributor cap replaced at 78,000 miles.
Cruise control only works when it wants to.
The Jetta is very quick and responsive, even on the low end GL model.
Love the large trunk space.
I don't like the seat adjustment mechanism.
Very nice looking car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
