Reliable at first but ..........
By DC101 on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Good car at first but always consumed
lots of oil, keep an eye on dipstick !
Windows have always been an on/off
problem but car has been reliable until
120,000 miles at which point electrical
problems (misfiring) started to plague
the car. Had it in several times for
same problem. Still not resolved,
dealership(s) can not find cause of
problem so car now deemed unreliable
(broke down 3 times in 1 month on major
highways). VW Customer care is totally
worthless. Will not reimburse me for
out of pocket towing and car rental
costs for VW parts gone bad.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, strong air conditioning, decent overall styling.

Worst Features

Use less cheap plastic parts. My ashtrays broke, cupholder broke, armrest broke and glovebox broke.
