1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

My dashboard was put in crooked at the factory, something I did not notice for several months. I had all the usual problems with the oxygen and mass airflow sensors, replaced 3 or 4 times (I forget which), cupholders, green ooze in the doors, poor key, 2 second delay when getting into gear on the automatic transmission. etc. Also an "endearing" noise in the front dash that occurs each year at through the cold weather season. Probably some metal parts contracting and vibrating in the cold. I contacted the president of VW in Germany, got a letter back from Germany saying that some one in the US would come out and look at my car. No one ever showed.

Favorite Features

Design and ride.

Suggested Improvements

Needs quality control. That 2 second delay in the transmission when going into drive or reverse is absolutely dangerous. The dealership had the nerve to try and convince me it was a safety feature.
