1999 Volkswagen GTI GLS 2dr Hatchback (midyear)


HATRED doesn't scratch the surface. I
loved this car so much in the
beginning, the handling-amazing, seats
comfortable, car was stylish. I would
leave it running in the hopes someone
would steal the god forsaken thing.
My window fell down into the door 3
times (once on the driver's side,
twice on the passenger's), heavy
transmission work done, passenger seat
wouldn't latch down and I after I got
it fixed, the driver's seat wouldn't
latch down. Things inside the car
just started falling off. Luckily
someone T-boned it while it was parked
and the car is a total loss.This car
was nothing but a LEMON.

Best Features

Heated seats, handling, loved to drive it before everything started to fall apart.

Worst Features

Does anyone inspect these cars? All I can think is "shoddy craftsmanship" How many separate times in a month can a check engine light come on?
