1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Styling and ride are fine. I can't
believe the things that went wrong
that I have never experienced in a car
in my life. Windows(2) dropping down
into the door for no reason. Both
cupholders that won't work. What's
that about. Trunk release went inop
for no reason. AM radio side has a
range of about 2.4 miles. Mass air
system not being covered by drive
train warranty - but on a regular gas
engine it was a recall repair. My
power went down 50% because of this.
$500 to repair. Stupid,stupid,
stupid. Makes customer loyalty hard
to consider. Other than this, I love
the car. Dumb stuff hurts an otherwise
nice car.

Best Features

Priced right. Great mileage. Handles well. Good styling. Comfortable ride.

Worst Features

Work on common things. Like cupholders, trunk remotes, window retainers, mass air systems... stuff like that. Dependability is why people buy this car.
