1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)


We bought our Jetta used with 62k on it. The car is beautiful inside and out, but it does have a few flaws. Like the other reviews on this site, the front window did get stuck in the down position. The problem is not electrical, but the cheap plastic clips that attach the glass to the regulator broke, it cost $150 for a new regulator. The sunroof shade has broken off of the track and is stuck in the headliner preventing the sunroof from sliding open. The trunk light also has a mind of its own. I have never dealt with the dealer since I fix everything myself. On that note, the build quality is excellent. Wish the car was stick, the VR6 is a nice engine.

Best Features

Styling, engine, ride quality

Worst Features

Needs more rear leg room, don't buy the car if you have kids. Quit building the car in Mexico and maybe some Gremlins would disappear.
