vw ok but too little
By marenG on


1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (midyear)


I have to say I have not experienced
such terrible luck. We bought the car
at 20,000 miles and the O2 sensor
problem was already fixed. We have had
the driver's window drop into the door
and had to replace the motor- a problem
I hear others describing. The dash
cupholder is junk- broken by 35,000
miles. Otherwise our Jetta has been
mechanically fine. We are about to sell
it to it's 3rd owner but only because
baby #2 is coming in december and the
backseat is too TINY for 2 car seats!
In fact few of our friends are able to
sit back there b/c it's so small. We
find that the passenger has to sit with
knees right against the airbag- and we
are not that tall!

Best Features

body style is very pretty and drives very smooth- the blue dash lights are fun, and the stereo sounds great.

Worst Features

More interior space!!! Sturdier cupholders and better quality head and taillights (burn out too freuently)
