Buying this Jetta was a big mistake!!
By mark_louis on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)


It seamed like a nice car at first.. I
bought it used with 34kmi here's what
it cost me in the last 5kmi. Broken
glove box hinge $300. MAP sensor
problem $350. Ignition coil $690. I
still have transmission shift problems,
a water leak on the drivers door and a
trunk light that doesn't work.

Best Features

I called VW to complain, they told me that as a policy they do not assist with "second owners".

Worst Features

When I said that I would like to write a letter to VW management the customer care representative told me that any complaint letter would "never make it to the addressee". How's that for customer care!I cut my losses and traded this lemon (at a loss).
