1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

My problems duplicate the others, including the yellow door goo, bad oxygen sensors, frequent check engine light (can't believe it hasnt burned out yet), cup holder, peeling door handle, bad ignition coil, bad catalytic converter, and so on. I initially thought I had a lemon, but let's face it folks, they are all like this. After the last episode involving the catalytic converter, I will be rid of it shortly. I'm at the point where I don't have enough faith to take it out of town. And current owners who gave good reviews....if you haven't seen these problems yet, you're just pressing your luck.

Favorite Features

Dashboard lights are sharp, it handles well, body looks nice (after I clean the goo off the doors).

Suggested Improvements

Too many to list. Bottom line: VW, find some suppliers who make decent parts. Your "German engineering" is useless if the parts are junk. The cup holder is downright pathetic.
