99 Jetta GLX after 3.5 years
By brianSD on

Vehicle

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

My favorite car after owning five previous cars. Problems encountered: 1. False engine light @10000 miles. 2. Faulty brake lamp @14,000 miles, prevented shift from park to drive, fixed under warranty. 3. Sunroof liner popped out of track @15,000 miles, fixed under warranty. 3. Cracked oilpan on road dip, replaced my cost @35,000 miles. 4. A/C compressor failure @50,000 miles, replaced under extended warranty plan (bought at time of purchase). 5. Passenger front window failure @55,000, repaired and upgraded window kits installed by dealer, no cost.

Favorite Features

VR6 performance/quietness. Leather interior, solid build and GLX options.

Suggested Improvements

Stiffer front suspension to prevent bottoming out; better quality control to prevent window regulator failure (should have been recall); better cupholder location.
