1998 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0 gas from North America
I love this car and look forward to spending time in it every day
Starter failed and had to be replaced.
Ignition coil failed and was replaced.
Door locks sometimes fail.
This car gets great gas mileage. Between 29 - 35 with a gas engine!
Much more fun to drive than my Volvo. Shifting is a pleasure and not a chore; the car feels glued to the surface of the road.
The luggage room with the seat folded is phenomenal. The shape is square and usable, unlike a Mercury Grand Marquis that I rented to haul small furniture. We are currently making a move, and I stand in amazement as to what will fit in this car. Furthermore, it's highway road holding and handling are improved by the added burden.
This car has loads of personality and charisma. It's the first car that I've given a name (Herbie) - I tried naming my Volvo and it just didn't work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
