1998 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0 Gasoline from North America
I love my Jetta, but wish there weren't so many problems
Well, the passenger side window will not go up or down unless the defrost light is blinking.
The coolant continuously leaks and I am looking at a two hundred fifty dollar repair for that.
The ignition has issues: it locked my key in the ignition and would not come out. That was a two hundred dollar bill for simply removing the key. I haven't even had the problem really fixed yet.
The paint on the door handles is worn off.
The miles per gallon ratio is not that great, it ends up being about 18 mpg.
The RPM's jump all over the place when driving. When accelerating, the car will go from 3000 rpm's to 5000 rpm's and fluctuate around that area.
The air conditioning still works great.
The heat works great and I love the sun roof.
The window problems won't bother me until one falls through or something.
It's a very comfortable car with nice interior features.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
