1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

2 problems, 2 words. Windows! Cooling! I leased the car new and within 1 year replaced a window regulator. I have had it for four years and average 1 a year with an exception for not replacing the passenger side after I turned the car into a commuter. Cooling system has been the final straw and will cause me to never own another VW. Of all the cars I've owned in my life, I've never had one have the air conditioning system go out until now. Add to that the fact that the driver side window regulator went out the next day and you have a VERY pissed off owner.

Favorite Features

The motor and manual transmission are among the best I've driven in compact sedans.

Suggested Improvements

Window regulators are of a very poor design and cheap materials, solid metal is much better than cheap plastic when holding something made of glass and probably a bit safer too!!!!
