Problems with Jetta
By S. Adams on

Vehicle

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

I purchased this car thinking I wouldn't have a lot of repairs. Numerous problems have occurred: oxygen sensor replaced 3 times, driver visor replaced, cup holder replaced(2) passenger seat spring replaced, catalytic converter replaced, air conditioner compressor replaced, 1 keyless remote doesn't work, rust in trunk, engine light on 4 times, batteries (2), mass air flow meter replaced, wires replaced, throttle body replaced, timing belt, V-belt, 2 tensioners replaced, car jerks when changing gears (dealer can't explain), ticking noise under hood (dealer cant explain); not to mention regular maintenance. I will never purchase another VW vehicle.

Favorite Features

Initially, I was very pleased with the car-style, ride, fuel economy, features, and size. However, that has changed.

Suggested Improvements

Volkswagen Corporation needs to honor warranties and fix the problems with this car that so many owners are having and stop giving customers the run around. I will never recommend this car to anyone.
