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


Review

It must depend on where and on what day your jetta gets built. I see that some of the reviewers think this is a good car. Well ours isn't. It get very poor gas mileage for a 4 cyl car. We have already had the tires replaced at 40,000 mi. and the brakes had to be replaced at 27,000 mi. The plastic section below the grill has come off twice. The car is noisy and has no power. It does look nice.


Best Features

Appearance.


Worst Features

Put some money into the handling and noise reduction and use better quality parts. This car is all marketing (show) and no substance.Avoid it.

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


Review

The look of the car was the first thing that caught my eye..I should have looked away. No major mechanical problems, just really annoying quality ones. The car squeeks like crazy, from everywhere! The dashboard, the front end, the steering column, etc. I had to be towed out of my own driveway when the computer failed and the car wouldn't go into gear. Now my directional signals don't work. The dealerships mechanics are terrible, what's the use of a warranty when they keep telling you nothing is wrong? For this money you should buy something else.


Best Features

The dashboard lights are cool, but not cool enough to make me keep this car.


Worst Features

Start over.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great Car...Really! If you are looking for a Good car with classic lines, that you will continue to love even when things don't always go perfectly, then the VR6 is a great choice. The car rides well on the highway and well paved secondary roads..on choppy roads at low speed it can be a little unconfortable. High Speed handling and peformance 220 klm is exceptional, the sweet spot is 120 mph.. The passing power really surprises many V8 american cars i.e


Best Features

Interior quality ( heated leather seats, functional rear locking seats, power one touch sunroof one touch frt windows, and multifunction lighted steering wheel..


Worst Features

Reliabilty.. Improved gearing for lower speed acceleration. Offer the 4motion option and a equivalent to audi S program with clear distinction between the performance VW and the lesser model i.E TDI

Review

Handles well. The seats collect fuzz- balls, however with a little work and a pet sponge they can be removed. Rubber interior parts peel. We've replaced the door handles twice and now the armrest is peeling. By the way the armrest also broke it won't hold position. Some of the interior lights work sporatically. The regular sevice maintenance is expensive. The 50000 mile scheduled maintenance costs about $375 and cosists of mostly checking things and replacing plugs, air filter, a tire rotation and an oil change. Good news is my windows haven't yet fallen out.


Best Features

Comfortable front seats,great sound system (Monsoon & CD player), cool dash lights, handles well, large trunk, good mileage.


Worst Features

Change the seat fabric and the rubberized interior. Extend the warrenty. Relocate the cupholder.
