Beware of the Jetta
By kerryk_21 on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)


You may look good driving a Jetta but
you wont look so cute shelling out
money every month for repairs. In
less than two years I have replaced
the cerpentine belt,the passenger
window fell through the door,shocks
and brakes, mass air flow filter, many
small repairs, $40 oil changes and
last but not least the catalytic
converter. This single part costs
around $1,000 and usually lasts the
lifetime of most cars but not the
jetta. The cup holder needs to be
thrown out the window and I dont know
what to do with the gunk that drips
from the doors! You've been warned!

Best Features

The blue dash lights are great! Love my key fab!Steering and handling is wonderful! It is a fun car to drive.

Worst Features

New cup holders, overall improvements on engine life, more quality in exterior lights life time.
