1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (midyear)


From me you get much of the same: Love the looks, annoyed by the reliability. But it's good not to have a car payment. Since buying my car in 1999 I've replaced the coil pack at least once, maybe twice, replaced the wiper motor (which then failed again but I got a replacement free). In the last 4 months, at about 80,000 miles, I've replaced the O2 sensor and manifold, which combined with the wipers cost about $2000. I need a new catalytic converter, which will be around $1300. Yet I can't afford a new car, so oh well. Combined city and highway overall mileage has been about 25 mpg, so that's decent.

Best Features

exterior styling, decent but not great mileage. Feels fairly safe.

Worst Features

Reliability! Also less expensive parts and repairs - it's a VW, not a BMW.
