1999 Volkswagen Jetta TDi 4dr Sedan


I bought this car for my parents to
drive being a supposedly great car.
Unfortunately, we have never seen such
terrible reliability in a car. This
car visits the dealership every other
month with every breakdown possible
from turbo, glowplugs, electrical,
engine problems, carbon build up, door
locks, lighting contols, stalling, not
starting etc. etc. My parents are stuck
driving their older Buick LeSabre most
the time because it is the only car
they can trust.

Best Features

Gas mileage and handling.

Worst Features

Please don't make any more of these lemons. People don't realize how bad the quality is until they start breaking down on them all the time.
