Great car! Best I've ever owned, I am 40
By RO on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Awesome! Great car. The TDI motor is
peppy (when linked to the 5-spd.
manual) and gets 45-50 mpg. The
driveability is excellent. Sporty.
Mine has 70,000 and only minor things
have had to be replaced, namely, cup
holder assembly, glove box door, and
power sunroof track guides. The only
other bad thing I've encountered is
that in severely cold weather (-10 to 0
degrees), I had the fuel "gel up" on me
and had to be towed. Other than that
FANTASTIC!. Best car ever owned, this
includes: Ford Taurus, Ford Mustang
GT, Plymouth Voyager SE, Subaru Wagon,
Cutlass Supreme, AMC Spirit, Audi 5000T
and more! I'd buy another one tomorrow.

Best Features

Dash lights, Very, very good sound system (Monsoon). Ride, engine, 5- speed, mpg (45ish). sportiness, "Audiness". Suspension, driveability, road hugging. Lack of problems.

Worst Features

Cupholder assembly (front and rear), glove box door. What is that "goop" coming down from the door hinges onto to the frame?
