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


I bought this car in February of 2009. It had 87,000 miles on it. I got it for a good price because the glove box was broken and the seller wanted to get rid of it. Bad idea. Soon after driving it around the grill fell off, the driver's mirror fell off, the seats don't recline, the lid that covers the outlet didn't close, the MAF sensor has been replaced 3 times, if you spill water on the seats it stains, and today my trunk decided to stop opening. Either do your research before you buy a Jetta (I would not recommend it however) or buy a Mazda, which I am about to do if I can sell it.

Best Features

I thought the Jettas were so pretty. I like the red and blue dash lights.

Worst Features

Stop making cheap cars, both mechanically and design quality. Better gas mileage. If you are going to sell the cheap car with cheap parts, why do I have to pay $500 to get my glove box fixed?
