My Jetta fails me.

Where does one take a sick and ailing 98 Jetta in Chicago?

My Jetta is on its way out the door, I think. However, it needs some serious attention until we can afford a new car of some sort. I seem to have some electrical problems (ie: the check engine light is on, the horn doesn't work, the wipers don't work, sometimes the vents and air don't work, etc.)

The recommendation for brake repair I got was really good, so I'm hoping that you'll have some equally excellent ideas for electrical system repair.

Essential details:
1. I live in Lincoln Park
2. I work in the South Loop
3. It's a 98 Jetta Wolfsburg automatic

I've seen a repair shop on Ashland, somewhere between Division and North full of mostly VW's. I think there's also a shop at Diversey and Ashland that specializes in imports.

It's a bit north of you, but Ashland Tire & Auto always did right by my VW Golfs before I went car-free. Super honest and reasonably priced.

I have used Cartalk's Mechanics Files to find a good mechanic before.
