1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)


We bought our Jetta used with 62k on
it. The car is beautiful inside and
out, but it does have a few flaws.
Like the other reviews on this site,
the front window did get stuck in the
down position. The problem is not
electrical, but the cheap plastic clips
that attach the glass to the regulator
broke, it cost $150 for a new
regulator. The sunroof shade has
broken off of the track and is stuck in
the headliner preventing the sunroof
from sliding open. The trunk light
also has a mind of its own. I have
never dealt with the dealer since I fix
everything myself. On that note, the
build quality is excellent. Wish the
car was stick, the VR6 is a nice engine.

Best Features

Styling, engine, ride quality

Worst Features

Needs more rear leg room, don't buy the car if you have kids. Quit building the car in Mexico and maybe some Gremlins would disappear.
