Vehicle

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

This is my third VW and when I drove it from the dealers lot, I was very pleased. Since then there has been the problem with wear and ride of my Good year Eagles (dealer replaced), the springs popping out of my from seats, the MAF sensor ($400 for the part), the constantly blown driver side break light, the dead alternator (36,000 mi, $850 to replace), and finally the front window lift failures (acknowledged as a defect by VW after many years). And need I say the long wait times for a maintenance appointment at the dealer.

Favorite Features

The pickup of my VR6.

Suggested Improvements

Quality, Quality, Quality. Assembling in Mexico seems to be OK, but the components that go into the car and repairs (beyond the realm of most home mechanics) are very expensive for the "peoples car".
