I just traded in my 1999 new Jetta TDI
for a 2003 model. Generic faults with
the earliar models.
1-Glove compartment hinges break.
2-Front and rear cup holders break
3-Rear ashtray breaks easily.
4-Mass airflow sensor fails.
5-Black Cloth material losses its
6- Interior material hard to clean.
7-Water pumps fail prematurly.
8-Diesel model intake plugs up with tar
Due to EGR design.
9- Relay 109 fails every 20,000 miles
on Diesel models.
10-Electric windows fall out of guides.
11-Floor mats do not stay in place.
Economy, Smoothness, looks,ESP and the
class that this small car has.
Rear seat legroom, climate control,
heftier air conditioner, more
horsepower on diesel model and a crome
antenna. The current antenna is an
insult to the overall Jetta Quality!
