1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)

Review

We'd hoped to have the Jetta for many years -- it was fun to drive, got good mileage, and was well-designed. But three months after getting it, the electric system failed. Scrape the front bumper on the curb and it would come off. That happened four times. Sensors went out. Parts failed. All this despite regular service and care. Finally, something got loose around the catalytic converter. We said that's it. Just got a new Subaru Forester. I hope it lasts as long as we'd HOPED the VW would. VW, you should be ashamed.

Favorite Features

Fun to drive, good-looking dials on the dash, nice exterior design, zippy.

Suggested Improvements

Learn how to make a reliable, trustworthy car. Besides everything we had to have fixed, I think it was recalled twice. We're never even CONSIDERING VW for any future cars.
