1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan


This was my second Volkswagen. I bought this vehicle as a certified used car with a generous warranty. I have had NO problems with this car. It has never needed any mechanical service besides standard service. It handles great with "H" rated tires. I replaced the factory stereo with an aftermarket CD player, the factory speakers sound great. I get about 33 mpg on highway. this car is fun to drive and the 5 speed is smooth and simple. This car is bullet proof. It has gotten me out of trouble more than once with its awesome handling and braking. Can't say enough good things about this model.

Best Features

Power everything, handling, long drive comfort, fuel mpg, fun to drive

Worst Features

If you own one of these vehicles you will notice the side trim falls off, I had a body shop use a better adhesive to reattach them, no problems since. No mechanical problems whatsoever
