1999 Volkswagen Jetta Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 48 reviews
1999 was a changeover year for the Volkswagen Jetta, with some of the previous year's models still on sale for several months, and a new, next-generation version introduced later in the model year. With this new version, the Jetta's body was enlarged slightly, the engine and interior were updated, and the list of standard features available throughout the line was expanded.
The new Jetta GL sedan got an updated 115-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and came with a list of standard features that included a keyless entry system, power door locks, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, air conditioning, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and an anti-theft alarm system.
Also available were a new higher-end Jetta GLS trim package, a GLX version with a 174-horsepower V6, and two new TDI turbodiesel trim packages. All versions came dual airbags and anti-lock brakes, among other features. The GLX came standard with leather seats and a power sunroof.
Overall, drivers were impressed with the Jetta's handling, smoothness over the road, comfort, and roominess. And while some drivers praised the overall build quality of the Golf, others noted frequent problems and reliability issues with the car.
