Great Car, Poor Reliability
By Staninct on
Vehicle1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)
ReviewThe car is great, esp. since I am 6'4" and fit rather well in it. Performance a bit sluggish with 2.0l engine, great controls, quality textiles for fabric and dash panels. Terrible trouble with "disappearing" engine oil, 3 dealers cannot find out where 3 quarts are going between oil changes (must be burnt), constant check engine lights, window regulator troubles, tail light bulb troubles, and it sounds like a popcorn machine in the morning!
Best FeaturesVery comfortable for tall people, great controls, ergonomics, overall sturdy build quality. Very good in the snow for a FWD car.
Worst FeaturesElectronics are TERRIBLE and engine is dated...highly suggest and extended warranty FROM VW if you are considering this vehicle. And it has no back seat room.
