1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)


1. I heard a big noisy explosion under
the hood,the fumes were coming out
everywhere, it was the battery that
exploded covering all the engine with
acid, 2. a fuse block that started to
smoke, dealership said everything was
fine, came back and had to use the
extinguisher to fight the flames coming
out of the battery, battery case, fuse
blocks and everything around it. 3. had
to replace the mass flow sensor (twice)
4. Glove box replaced (twice), 5. O2
sensor, 6. Replace tail lights every
three months, 7. having to clean that
yellow ooze coming down from the
doors,8. Now it's overheating but
dealer said there is no problem...

Best Features

Looks, sytle, big trunk

Worst Features

More back seat space, and normal automotive quality, not as if you paid $1K for the car....
