Steer clear of this one!!

1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


After two year warrenty ended, I have
poured dollar after dollar into this
car. I only drive it about 11,000 miles
per year. Over the past 6-9 months I
have replaced the power steering rack
($1200), the catalytic converter ($900),
all four brake pads and rotors ($700
because warning light never told me pads
were low), both front windows have
fallen off the tract (VW paid), replaced
three different kinds of sensors ($800)
etc. (I'm running out of space...)
Complete lemon. Others I know have had
same problems.

When the car is working it is fun to drive. Too bad that's rarely.
