2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The 1.8Turbo is a blast to drive, but it
has been a horror to own. I've had
major mechanical issues (ie engine
mounts falling off) that many feel
should have been warranty items.
Unfortunately, VW customer service
was not among this group. Even
though I've been a VW owner for 12
years, and my family has been loyal
to the brand for over 25 years, I'm
going to be selling asap to escape
this dismal reliability and customer
service.


Best Features

1.8 turbo engine, heated seats, cockpit layout


Worst Features

VW must address their build quality + warranty issues, and their customer service response to these problems. They seem to be really going down hill. With customer service, it is nearly impossible to talk with someone who can take action.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I don't recommend anyone to buy this
car.The first week I had the car, my
window fell!!! I've been back for that
same problem 4 more times since. I've
also had a brake sensor malfunction, so
I couldn't get my car off of park and
had to get it towed to the dealership.
I've had to replace the airconditioning
module and fan and now have to replace
the control module for the car. The
inside is also peeling, the armrest
broke and the seats collect fuzz like
crazy. It's not worth it!! Save
yourself the trouble. A 2001 model is
still rather new to be having all these
freaken problems.


Best Features

The way it drives, the interior lighting and my sunroof!


Worst Features

Everything!!!

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I purchased a VW Wolfsburg back in
2001 after a very good experience with
an older Jetta. The 2001 Jetta has
been nothing but problems. Nother
major went out but very soon after the
2 year warrenty expired my cruise
control went out, mechanical problems,
breaks went out, not to mention a
recall that fixed a problem. When I
got my breaks fixed I asked why they
went out so soon. The mechanic said
when the vehicle was assembled, the
breaks were not put in right. As far
as the cruise control, I was told that
it was a junk part that was assembled
(but I still needed to pay for it
because it was not under warrenty).


Best Features

Tubro engine


Worst Features

Quit building the cars like crap.

Review

I bought my Jetta used. It was 3 yrs
old and only had 36k on it. Right
away when I got it the blinkers
stopped ticking, but other than that
my car has been absolutely perfect. I
really wanted to get a GTI, but this
was more in my price range. I thought
I would be disappointed, but I
couldn't be happier w/ this little
car. I still love to get in it
everyday and don't regret my purchase
at all. Very pleased!


Best Features

I love the pep the car has. I'm definitely going to get a ticket soon. Everything about the car feels very solid and smooth. Being my first VW it's fun to discover all the neat little things that make this car so different.


Worst Features

The knob to adjust the seat is sort of lame. And the back seats aren't very good if you have legs.
