1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

Too much wrong offsets everything that is good about this car. I am on my ***14th*** window regulator! I live in Phoenix and the OOZE on the door sills is present 6+ months out of the year. The front end undercarriage is damaged (low clearance, a common Jetta problem). I finally bought a DieHard battery after the first two supplied by VW died in the first year. Performance, once excellent, now sucks wind - 0-60 in about 14 seconds. Fuel economy has dropped below 35mpg city 40mpg hwy. VW customer service is a joke - they are rude and do not care. I am glad I do not own this vehicle!! Built in Mexico - and it shows!

Suggested Improvements

Fix the window regulators!!! Tell me how to get that ooze sucked out - there is a seemingly infinite supply of it! I am just very unhappy and the VW corporate flunkies simply do not care. How sad!
