2000 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

I have destroyed 5 cars now. I really drive my cars hard. This jetta is by far the finest car ive driven. It kicks BMW's ass in everything but quality and gadgets. When i purchased the car the check engine light came on because of the mass air flow and turbo cutoff switch, dealer fixed everything under warranty. car was in dealer for 2 days. dealer explained to me how you have to use 91 octain fuel to protect the sensors and components. Since ive followed the fuel requirements i have been nothing but 100% impressed with this car. It hugs the road like a 60k+ sports car and the 150hp 1.8L turbo acts like a compariable 3.0 v6 without the low gas mileage


Best Features

the 1.8 turbo engine and suspension also the nice blue and red dash lights


Worst Features

glove box is made rather cheeply with only 1 hindge its just waiting to break on me...

2000 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS VR6 4dr Sedan


Review

This vehicle represents the biggest nightmare of my life. I should have known when the transmission failed with 3,000 miles on it that I was in big trouble. 15 major repairs including 3 transmissions later, I find myself waiting to find out why the check engine light went on this time. Volkswagen did absolutely nothing to try to reconcile the piece of garbage that they sold me, and consequently, I will never buy another product from them. I have never gone more than 4 months without needing some sort of major repairs on this car. I will never buy a Volkswagen again.


Best Features

Looks nice.


Worst Features

Transmission should last for more than 3,000 miles, and if it fails within that time period, replace the car immediately.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


Review

Good car that has held up well. After four years, I still get a kick out of driving it and love all of the little creature comforts it has.


Best Features

VR6 and gadgets galore.


Worst Features

The Goodyears that came on mine sucked but the Yokohamas I replaced them with this year rock. I would also like a slightly stiffer suspension but I'm aware that would be at the cost of comfort and smoothness.

Review

car is nice and fast, i'm a big guy (6'4", 235) and i am pretty comfortable in it. the only problem was the multiple window clip failures but i haven't had that happen for at least a year now. the only reason i'm considering getting rid of is for something bigger-family man now. now i'm spoiled the next car has to be able to go at least 125 also.

Review

We have almost 100K on our Jetta, so far we have had to replace the O2 sensor twice. The doors creak if you don't lube them and BAD gas mileage for an underpowered 4 cylider. We don't get a drop over 28mpg at any speed. For a little car, it's a gas hog. My mother in-laws Buick Park Avenue gets better mileage and has twice the horsepower! The automatic transmission can't make up it's mind what gear to choose or when to shift. Lord help you if you back out of a parking stall and expect to get moving into traffic fast. It won't happen. There is about a 3 second lag before it kicks in.


Best Features

Cool features that are only on cars that cost $35-40,000.00.


Worst Features

Better transmission (auto) Better gas mileage More leg room in the back seat. Stand behind your product and those stupid O2 sensors.
