1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I have had two Jettas, a '97 and
this '99. These cars are built for
drivers. I have had no major problems
with my '99. I had one window fall
off the track, a mass air flow sensor
(replaced via recall), and had to have
the coolant tank resovoir replaced.
All were covered under my extended
warrenty. In total, I've spent about
$180 on repairs in the 5 years I've
owned it. It burns more oil than
other cars I've owned, about a half a
quart every 3000 miles, but I drive
hard and my old Jetta was the same.
One complaint is that the front bumper
is shaped like a hook and will latch
on to a curb and not let go.

Best Features

Handling, but the stock Michelins did the car no justice. This car is super reliable, good gas efficiency, and a great value.

Worst Features

Re-engineer the hook shaped black portion of the front spoiler, I've seen several Jettas with front bumpers that have hooked one too many curbs.
