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


Review

I "WANT" to love this car. It's been tough though. I test-drive other cars and nothing is better then my Jetta. Yet, I don't trust it. I am disappointed in the electrical problems, yet love when it runs 'right.'


Best Features

Interior accomodations (steering wheel controls, power feature controls, etc.). I love the sport suspension, handling, and performance. The power off the engine is unbeatable too!


Worst Features

Water/rain condition control. Air 'intake' be higher then it is. Minimal flooding and heavy rains cause for major issues!

Vehicle

2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

this vehicle is proof that German
engineering is unrivaled! The overall
comfort and convenience is excellent.
As a long distance driver(Northern Cali
to Phoenix), I could not have made a
better decision. I find myself driving
this car more than my new car(2004
CLK500). This is my 4th VW and I am
happier with my current more than my
others. All of the minor issues I have
had are more than worth the price of
ownership. Compared to other vehicles
in the same price range, it excells in
comfort, convenience, ride, quietness,
features and especially, QUALITY
MATERIALS! Thank you Volkswagen!


Best Features

the fuel economy in this vehicle is amazing and for the horsepower you can't beat the performance. All the auto features of the interior power options are great to have and so convenient! The Monsoon sound system rocks for a stock stereo.


Worst Features

Cloth interior is like a LINT MAGNET! What is going on with the oxygen sensors? thank GOD the windows finally were recalled! Wow! This car is almost as much to maintain as my mercedes!

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


Review

I bought my 2001 VW Jetta 1.8T
Wolfsberg edition used in 2003. I've
had it for a year now and I love it.
I've had a couple 'recall' parts that
I've had to bring the car in for, but
they were minor and I was not having
any problems. My car is roomy, cute,
and fun to drive! I love all of the
little extras the manufactures put
into making this vehicle. It has been
a reliable, fantastic purchase. I
would definitely buy this car again.


Best Features

heated seats, monsoon audio system, blue/red dash lights (gets oohs and ahs from all my friends), cool rims, turbo!!

Review

I Bought this car from an induvidual
for 13K , with 47,000 miles on it .
The car was in outstanding condition .
Having heard the horror stories of
reliability , I purchased a 4 year
Extended Warrenty with unlimited
miles. After six months I've not had
any troubles what so ever . The cup
holders do block the CD player ,the
break pedal sits just a hair to high ,
and on uneven roads the dash around
the cupholder rattle the slightest
bit . The car is a blast to drive ,
and the interior is beautiful . The
inerior is on par with the Audi's and
BMW's I've seen . The Leather Seats
are beautiful . Braking is great. I
get 24\25 MPG on the hwy , and 19\21
in down , thats with correct tire
pressure .


Best Features

Heated seats , the blue and red dash lights , Sunroof , the cool VW Key , Sound system , Handeling ,Rainsense wipers , Full size spare tire , ASR , trunk size , Safety , he leather ,the Cup holders block the Cd player , but they are cool to show ppl :-P


Worst Features

Find a Better spot for the cup holders . Move the brake pedal down a hair. My advice to anyone who is buying a car , get an extended warrenty from a Private company . For a little over 1,000 $ I got a 4 year warr. that cover EVERYTHING but ths sunroof motor and covers $65P\h labor .

2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

Car is incredibly comfortable, &
feels solid.My first'nice' car,I
bought it used & put 20k miles
annually on it commuting to work.The
biggest drawback(only drawback) is
NO ONE with any experience works on
TurboDiesels in the WV area...&
turbodiesels(be they VW or otherwise)
are very special little beasts,&require
attention. My routine timing
belt change was a fiasco (along with
virtually every TDI owner who has is
done),& the Ntake is constantly
clogging with diesel soot(there's a way
to stop it, but it's not too
envirofriendly).It's an incredibly nice
car,&gets great mileage (45mpg pre-
timing belt change),&it is much
snappier than the 90HP rating shows.


Best Features

Great mileage, nice interior, ability to use alternative enviro-friendly fuels like soy-diesel.


Worst Features

Train techs better on TDI's at VW, and fix the car so loss of power due to 'clogging with diesel carbon buildup' isn't an accepted problem.
