1999 Volkswagen GTI GLX VR6 2dr Hatchback (midyear)

Review

I've only had two problems with this car since buying it new. First on a routine maintenance visit to the dealer, they found that the shift linkage was loose and needed to be repaired before it failed. Second, like many others, the power window regulator failed on the passenger side (which is what causes the windows to drop into the doors). Owners and potential owners should know that VW has now acknowledged the problem with these and extended the warranty coverage on that item to seven years -- and have redesigned the regulator to correct the issue.

Best Features

Comfortable, fun to drive, and plenty fast.

Worst Features

Tighten the suspension a little, better stock tires.
