Within 2 months, my O2 sensor
needed replacing. Then I had a brake
light that refused to flicker but
stayed on. Thank god I was still under
warranty! Less than a year later, my
speedometer dropped and after two
diagnostic tests, it was revealed I
need a new instrument cluster. Soon
after another O2 sensor was required.
Then, following the O2 sensor recall, I
was back in the shop for a Mass Air
Flow sensor replacement. Also, the
metal under my backseat window moldings
began rusting within 2 years. Overall,
you're better putting your money into
KMart than a 99 GL Jetta.
The fact that I only have 6 months left
on my lease.
