Vehicle1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan
ReviewIt is not a reliable car. Does not like going up hills, does't like snow, power windows stink-mine would start going up & down independently then caught on fire (no flames but lots of smoke in my car right behind my head), alloy wheels break when you hit a pothole - mine were discontinued so they don't match now, alternater and starter both replaced, antifreeze leaks ($18/gal), got stranded/towed 2 times in the past year, spark plugs and other wires not good, and now the transmission will not shift ... its not a safe car when you pull out of a toll booth on a highway and can't get above 40! I can't even think what else is wrong with the car, I would never buy another one.
Best FeaturesThe heat and rear defroster work great and they are about the only things that are reliable on the car.
Worst FeaturesCup holders that actually hold a drink (mine only hold a 12 ounce can nothing taller fits). A better tape player - mine will automatically turn on and say error, when playing cds or radio. A better battery - with more accessable nodes - jumper cables are very difficult to connect.
