Disappointing VW
By Kerry on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan


I bought this car new 1999 and at first I loved it. However, I have since changed my mind. I'm not sure if it's because this car was built in Mexico and not Germany that the quality is not as good, but I have had the left rear window fixed TWICE at my expense. The electrical system is shotty at best. When I turn down the radio volume, it gets louder before it gets quieter. The interior of the car seems to falling apart. The gear shifter cover had to be replaced 3 times and the rear cup holder cover keeps popping off. As for the exterior, my biggest complaint is that the driver and passenger side door bumpers (the rubber part, so people don't ding your doors) have fallen off. My 1975 Westy is better.
