A Huge Disappointment!!
By TrickyKid75 on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Within 2 months, my O2 sensor
needed replacing. Then I had a brake
light that refused to flicker but
stayed on. Thank god I was still under
warranty! Less than a year later, my
speedometer dropped and after two
diagnostic tests, it was revealed I
need a new instrument cluster. Soon
after another O2 sensor was required.
Then, following the O2 sensor recall, I
was back in the shop for a Mass Air
Flow sensor replacement. Also, the
metal under my backseat window moldings
began rusting within 2 years. Overall,
you're better putting your money into
KMart than a 99 GL Jetta.

Best Features

The fact that I only have 6 months left on my lease.

Worst Features

There aren't enough hours in the day...
