1999 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0 from North America
An excellent car, but with uncertain reliability
Obviously, I am one of the lucky ones that got a reliable Jetta.
I have been driving it every day with a 30-mile commute. There are only a couple minor things that have gone wrong:
The rear brake pads needed replacing at 55000 miles.
One side of the cup holder broke.
Of course, I have the yellow grease oozing from under the doors.
Every VW dealer I have ever been to is the absolute bottom-of-the-barrel for customer service. It seems that VW trys to have the most awful, rude people working in their dealers.
This car is quiet and has a good ride.
Handles excellent, although could use more power.
Braking is excellent.
Fuel economy is good.
Even though I have had excellent reliability so far, I can't help, but worry occasionally if my time is coming.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
