1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


This car was supposed to be my answer
to commuting. I cannot keep it on the
road. Check engine light has come on
at 50,000 miles and at 90,000 miles it
is still on. Volkswagen mechanics
throw up their hands. What do I do? I
have spent $2400 for the mechanics to
silence this light. What is the
100,000 mile warrenty for? They still
say glow plug relay. I began to
bottle and sell the ooze that leaks
from the doors. If Volkswagen could
fix this problem, I would have a decent
car. Power windows are a big joke.
Fix them in a timely manner for God's
sake. You could not run fast enough to
give me another one of these cars.

Best Features

I love the dash lights. (If the check engine light wasn't always on). Doors still close with that Mercedes clunk. Even with all the ooze packed in them. Love that diesel engine...nice to hold up all the truckers at truck stops as I fill up my 15 gallon tank with diesel.

Worst Features

Fix my check engine light. Please make a luxury diesel. I want leather, heated seats, climate control system, and dual power seats in my Jetta Diesel. Is this to difficult to build. Hint: Take a GLX VR6 and take the engine out and put in a diesel. very simple.
