1999 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0 from North America
This car has been a big headache from day one. The list is endless.
The first week, car would not start. Attempted to drive the car to the dealership for them to fix and car stops in the middle of the highway. The car had to be towed away.
Check engine light comes on and off.
Gas door will not shut.
Windows on both driver and passenger side dropped down through the door twice.
Hinges on glove compartment broke.
Sunroof will not open or close-tracks are broken.
Sliding cup holders broke.
Brake pads wore out quickly.
Save your money and buy something more dependable. This car is not worth its price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I wish I would have read all of these before purchasing a 99 4th Generation Jetta with 29,200 miles on it. So far, the only problems I've had (after owning it for 5 days) are the fuel door being broken, the radio not picking up AM stations clearly, and the right front AC vent is broken. Now I've only owned the car for 5 days, but it's one of the most fun cars I've ever driven. It's handling and driving feel make it seem like it has 30 miles on it ... not 30,000. So far, everything is going good and I've already put about 500 miles on it. I can live with little things going wrong, but if anything major occurs, I'm going to be very upset. Mainly because I traded a lemon in on it.
