1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

Overall the car is mechanically sound and fun to drive. The VR6 engine is peppy and smooth. The car handles well and is good in the snow. When you shift from a stopped position to Drive or Reverse, the automatic transmission takes a couple of seconds to engage. I had a couple of electrical problems with the motors that operate the sunroof and the windows, they were covered under warranty. There are many features the Jetta comes with that I don't see on some expensive European imports and the car has a solid feel. I purchased one of the very first Jettas with the "new" design and attribute the minor problems with it being a sort of prototype.

Favorite Features

Solid feel, fun to drive, strong engine,high quality extras(heated seats,leather detaling,remote door locks,etc.)

Suggested Improvements

Automatic transmission lag from stopped position to Drive or Reverse. Cupholder mechanism is a complicated design that begs for failure with repeated use. Sunroof could have a better seal, somewhat noisy at highway speeds.
