1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Bought it new, changed the oil
regularly, had trouble with windows and
AM antenna (both fixed by dealer under
warrantee), yellow goop cleaned at each
oil change by dealer for a few years,
just changed the battery and tires. I
could not expect more from a first year
of a new style.

Best Features

The max torque at 3000 rpm really helps get up those hills with out a problem. Fun to drive. Power outlet in trunk comes in handy. Love the auto-up on the front windows.

Worst Features

What is with the goop? Do I really need the dealer to change the headlights?
