1999 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Review

When I bought this car (still under warranty), I had few problems like oxygen sensor not workng, My indicator light sensors not working and the major was catalytic convertor failure. But, volkswagen paid for the catlytic convertor cost. Apart from it, I really never had any major breakdowns. So far so good. I wan't to kepp it till its wheels falls off. Lets see how it goes.


Best Features

Door locks automatically when you go 0.4 miles approx. Body looks sturdy. Interior front design is good. Trunk is spacious.


Worst Features

Remote entry key doesn't work from distances. Back room is a problem.

Review

This is the worst car I've ever owned. Almost every interior feature has broken, I've replaced a major engine part annually, and the warranty is a joke. Yes, it handles well, and yes, the body's nice, but beyond that this car has nothing to offer. Unless you want a car that's expensive to maintain and constantly in the shop, buy a Honda.


Worst Features

Warranty. Interior flaws. Engine problems.

Review

I really like this car. It has a good mix of features, fuel mileage, and handling for a low price. You do have rattles from time to time but the engine runs very well. My check engine light comes on, but it is only an emmisions indication. Don't worry too much about it, it will go off in a few days after in recalibrates. The windows are not the greatest,, but the car is really fun to drive and I love the fuel economy


Best Features

Handling, cd changer, sunroof. Great daily driver. I always look at my buddies driving big suvs to work. I have never missed a day due to snow.......so why would I need an suv??? I would rather spend the $$$ on something else than gas.


Worst Features

Could work on the little things that can become annoying..rattles, windows, and check emissions light

Review

I live in a big city where small parking spots and tight turning radious are at a premium. The car never lacks for power and can do circles around all of the 8 cylinder taxis, as well as easily cruising at 80 MPH on the interstates. The short wheel base base makes the car very responsive, but it does cause you to rock forward and backward a little-but that is the same with any small car. One mechanical problem with the air sensor, but VW just the warranty and is paying even though I repared it two years ago. Negatives: serious wind noise and some interior parts (rear ashtry, rear cup holder, front-passenger door handle, wood grain) have jamed, cracked or just broke.


Best Features

tight turning; powerful engine; relatively large trunk; cool blue lights on dash; heated seats--nice.


Worst Features

move the cupholders, they block the radio when in use--I think VW has fixed this in newer models. Reduce the wind noise with better design or more insulation.
