1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

Good car at first but always consumed lots of oil, keep an eye on dipstick ! Windows have always been an on/off problem but car has been reliable until 120,000 miles at which point electrical problems (misfiring) started to plague the car. Had it in several times for same problem. Still not resolved, dealership(s) can not find cause of problem so car now deemed unreliable (broke down 3 times in 1 month on major highways). VW Customer care is totally worthless. Will not reimburse me for out of pocket towing and car rental costs for VW parts gone bad.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, strong air conditioning, decent overall styling.

Worst Features

Use less cheap plastic parts. My ashtrays broke, cupholder broke, armrest broke and glovebox broke.
