Problems with Jetta
By S. Adams on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I purchased this car thinking I
wouldn't have a lot of repairs.
Numerous problems have occurred:
oxygen sensor replaced 3 times, driver
visor replaced, cup holder replaced(2)
passenger seat spring replaced,
catalytic converter replaced, air
conditioner compressor replaced, 1
keyless remote doesn't work, rust in
trunk, engine light on 4 times,
batteries (2), mass air flow meter
replaced, wires replaced, throttle body
replaced, timing belt, V-belt, 2
tensioners replaced, car jerks when
changing gears (dealer can't explain),
ticking noise under hood (dealer cant
explain); not to mention regular
maintenance. I will never purchase
another VW vehicle.

Best Features

Initially, I was very pleased with the car-style, ride, fuel economy, features, and size. However, that has changed.

Worst Features

Volkswagen Corporation needs to honor warranties and fix the problems with this car that so many owners are having and stop giving customers the run around. I will never recommend this car to anyone.
