1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (midyear)


Just bought my 5th VW, this time a '99 VR6. So far I am impressed, but like everyone else, the Check Engine light has been the bane of my existence. Not sure why it randomly comes on and off. Other than that, I love the power. For the door squeaks I use a product called Gummipflege (German product- which you can get at any BMW parts store), Best product ever for removing squeaks. My last car was a 04 1.8T, and I never should've gotten rid of it, but wifey needed a new car, so I sold that and got her an Odyssey. Oh well, I will always stick with VW, but the Scion tC has caught my eye, as well as it's sticker price.

Best Features

Power, Power, Power. Styling is cool. Great highway feel.

Worst Features

Gas Mileage hurts, handling could be stiffer, REMOVE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT!!!!! Purchase an 04 or higher and you'll be more satisfied. OH MY, I forgot the cup holders, what were you thinking??
