1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

I have had several breakdowns with this car. This was bought as a new car. First, I had an electrical problem, where the security system broke and kept the engine from running. Then, at 30000 miles, the glow plugs and glow plug relay went out, and had to be replaced at my expense because they were not part of the "powertrain" even though the car would not run without them. VW wouldn't replace my warped rotors at 10000 miles saying that they were "within tolerances". Then I had to pay to get them replaced when the warranty ran out. It stopped running yesterday at a busy intersection. I am extremely dissastisfied.

Test the car before you send it out of the factory. Mine came in bad mechanical condition, and that's the way it's going back: for a trade-in on a subaru.
