Sorry VW....never again
By disappointed on
Vehicle
1999 Volkswagen GTI GLS 2dr Hatchback (midyear)
Review
The car was great for the first 60,000 miles. At 80,000 the entire engine had to be replaced due to a valve malfunctioning. It was probally just a freak accident, nonetheless it shouldn't have happened to an 80,000 mile car. VW has numerous electrical and reliablity issues. And after reading the other reviews from past years, it seems we all had the same problems (window, cup holders, plastics in interior falling apart, and emmission problems). It's been to the shop more times then I can remember. I guess this was a bad year for GTI's.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive, exterior styling, and good gas milege.
Suggested Improvements
Improve the quality of the interior, electrical components, and most importantly overall reliability.
