Enjoyed My Jetta

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)
I enjoyed my car right from the beginning. I had some minor electrical issues when it was under warranty. Also, there was minor issue with the indicator lights that was repaired under warranty. My battery broke after 75,000 miles and that's when I replaced it. Under warranty, I had an oxygen sensor issue that has been corrected by the dealer. The catalytic converter failed at 60,000 miles, but luckily there was recall on that and my payment was reimbursed by VW. At 97,000 miles the transmission broke. Guess what, it has a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty and the dealer replaced it with a new transmission. At about 75,000 miles, I had an air conditioning issue that I had to pay for.
The interior lights, color of the dashboard and color of the bucket seats. I love the interior design and exterior look. It has lots of cargo space. It's great that ABS is standard in all cars.
Give it more rear seat leg room and better electrical functionality.
