1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

Those who give it praise now will indeed curse this car in the future. I have seen people judge their cars by whether or not they were stranded while driving. This car has stranded me 6 times since purchased in May 1999. That may not seem like much to other Jetta drivers (who probably have not been this fortunate), but I can assure you that it has been quite a disappointing journey for me. I will not go into detail about what has happened to this car during the last three years, due to limited space! Lets just say that I have put nearly $5000 into this car since after the 24000 mile mark!

Favorite Features

I love the sound system and the mileage!

Suggested Improvements

Better maintenance and part prices. Plastic clips that hold the windows need a major redesign. Seats could be more comfortable. Cup holder needs a better design. I have had major engine problems, which required VW parts that only the dealer could service. The parts were overpriced.
