1999 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan


Review

This is a fun car and very dependable.
The only complaints I have are the
windshield wipers are lousy, and the
windows fog up in the winter when the
heat is on.


Best Features

Overall it is a terrific car, best I have ever had.


Worst Features

Windshield wipers need better delay features, fix the windows fogging up in winter, replace the roller that reclines the seats with a lever.

Review

When I bought this car (still under
warranty), I had few problems like
oxygen sensor not workng, My indicator
light sensors not working and the
major was catalytic convertor failure.
But, volkswagen paid for the catlytic
convertor cost. Apart from it, I
really never had any major breakdowns.
So far so good. I wan't to kepp it
till its wheels falls off. Lets see
how it goes.


Best Features

Door locks automatically when you go 0.4 miles approx. Body looks sturdy. Interior front design is good. Trunk is spacious.


Worst Features

Remote entry key doesn't work from distances. Back room is a problem.

Review

This is the worst car I've ever owned.
Almost every interior feature has
broken, I've replaced a major engine
part annually, and the warranty is a
joke. Yes, it handles well, and yes,
the body's nice, but beyond that this
car has nothing to offer. Unless you
want a car that's expensive to
maintain and constantly in the shop,
buy a Honda.


Worst Features

Warranty. Interior flaws. Engine problems.

Review

I really like this car. It has a good
mix of features, fuel mileage, and
handling for a low price. You do have
rattles from time to time but the
engine runs very well.

My check engine light comes on, but it
is only an emmisions indication. Don't
worry too much about it, it will go off
in a few days after in recalibrates.
The windows are not the greatest,, but
the car is really fun to drive and I
love the fuel economy


Best Features

Handling, cd changer, sunroof. Great daily driver. I always look at my buddies driving big suvs to work. I have never missed a day due to snow.......so why would I need an suv??? I would rather spend the $$$ on something else than gas.


Worst Features

Could work on the little things that can become annoying..rattles, windows, and check emissions light
