Fun with flaws
By matmik on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


sunroof clips broke & they fixed this
twice. Was fine for 25000 miles until
the front passenger window dropped off
the PLASTIC! clips that held it up
(this happened twice). The yellow-green
grease in the door frame came, and
continues to emerge in warm weather.
Had the O2/Mass Air issues as well. VW
repaired the o2, but not before the
mass airflow went, which I had to pay
to fix. Interior molding coming off is
what's erking me now, but rubber cement
fixed that.
