Run Away, Don't buy this car!!
By pennstater on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I was in the shop 13 times in the first two years! Things broke on this car that I've never heard of breaking before! 2nd day engine was smoking, some type of lid flew off and was burning, alarms and door locks never worked right, locked at various random times, alarm sounded at various random times, I asked for this to be disconnected, was told cannot be done. Fuel pump went at 80,000, cup holders- we won't go there, center console lid broke, headlight on/off button stopped working, all dash lights stoppped working, front spoiler falls off frequently due to being too low, This was the worst car ever.

Best Features

Indigo Blue dash lights

Worst Features

Fix numerous electrical problems and make warrany longer. I had to point out to dealer that some of my broken items had an advisory out from corporate or they would have charged ME to fix it!
