1999 Volkswagen GTI GLS 2dr Hatchback (midyear)

Review

It's fun to drive and is thoughtfully designed. You can feel the quality build compared to other cars in it's class. However, my GTI has had numerous problems over the past three years. odometer replaced. A/C leaked into passenger side. replaced air intake/oxygen sensor(very expensive), which is related to it's problem with emission standard. windshield washers frequently clogged.

Favorite Features

attractive design, peppy, good handling, comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Fix emissions system problems. Better overall quality control.
