Never again!!
By Gallinator on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Too much wrong offsets everything that
is good about this car. I am on my
***14th*** window regulator! I live in
Phoenix and the OOZE on the door sills
is present 6+ months out of the year.
The front end undercarriage is damaged
(low clearance, a common Jetta
problem). I finally bought a DieHard
battery after the first two supplied by
VW died in the first year.
Performance, once excellent, now sucks
wind - 0-60 in about 14 seconds. Fuel
economy has dropped below 35mpg city
40mpg hwy. VW customer service is a
joke - they are rude and do not care. I
am glad I do not own this vehicle!!
Built in Mexico - and it shows!

Worst Features

Fix the window regulators!!! Tell me how to get that ooze sucked out - there is a seemingly infinite supply of it! I am just very unhappy and the VW corporate flunkies simply do not care. How sad!
