Re: Going to look at a 98 Jetta GLS tomorrow, what should I look for(problems)? (sirdUbsalot)

you're planning to sell your car on july 14th at 9 am? thats planning for ya

just usual stuff that you would look for in a used car. check to make sure the windows work. (window regulators have been a known problem). 2.0 is a good, pretty much bulletproof engine as long as it is taken care of. i cant think of anything else that may be an issue, my brain sucks right now. long weekend

I'm not good with numbers so sue me
I knew about the window regulators I think that is pretty much a requirement of VW's and Audi's. The windows in my mom's GT Coupe take about 10 years to go up and down now, and I used to have to pull the panel off to switch the wires back and forth from the one button that worked.
Anyway back on topic, anymore suggestions?

Sunroof regulators often go bad too. I can't really think of anything else, I don't really know the 8v engine that well.

Found it, but I still think that A3 owners would be better at giving me a heads-up as to what I should look for.
