1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Those who give it praise now will
indeed curse this car in the future.
I have seen people judge their cars by
whether or not they were
stranded while driving. This car has
stranded me 6 times since purchased
in May 1999. That may not seem like
much to other Jetta drivers (who
probably have not been this fortunate),
but I can assure you that it has been
quite a disappointing journey for me.
I will not go into detail about what
has happened to this car during the
last three years, due to limited
space! Lets just say that I
have put nearly $5000 into this car
since after the 24000 mile mark!

Best Features

I love the sound system and the mileage!

Worst Features

Better maintenance and part prices. Plastic clips that hold the windows need a major redesign. Seats could be more comfortable. Cup holder needs a better design. I have had major engine problems, which required VW parts that only the dealer could service. The parts were overpriced.
