Buy Something Else!
By Joe on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I bought this Jetta as a replacement for my aging Saab 900SE in 12/04. This car looked really nice with its low stocky stance and red and blue lights inside. It sure was a looker, but that's where the love affair ended. Fourth gear on the car would rattle and there was a buzzing / rattling in the headliner that would get on my everlasting nerves! It got HORRIBLE gas mileage for a 4yl. car and it had NO power at all. I thought all European cars were made the same, well I guess VW is the redheaded stepchild of the bunch. It also burned oil and the front bumper would occasionally fall off for no apparent reason! I sold it last year and don't miss it at all.

Best Features

The interior, European-look...ummmmmmmmmmmm it at least didn't catch on fire. I really can't think of anything else.

Worst Features

Improve the build quality.
