King of the corners
By Feeman on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 4dr Sedan


The 2.0 liter 8v is sluggish. This,
however, is the only complaint I
can make about this beautiful European
car. Although it doesn't feel that
stable, it can take corners faster than
is legal in most jurisdictions.
Interior design is typical flawless VAG
quality. Everything is laid out
logically and is well placed. The
sound system delivers crisp highs and
mids, and decent lows. The 5-speed
shifts smoothly, and the clutch
provides no fight. The best thing is,
this car has 145,000 miles on it, and
it is still running perfectly, with a
smooth idle. It still pulls strong
right up to the redline. VW
reliability proves itself once again.
Excellent car.

Best Features

Smooth shifting 5-speed. Rock steady reliability. Drop-dead gorgeous interior. Amazing road manners.

Worst Features

Bring back the 2.0 16v, stick it in this Jetta, and I'm in heaven.
