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

Review

I am approaching 30K on my 2001 GLX 5- speed and am sad to say that I won't own it long enough to reach 31K. I love the look and all the neat gadgets the Jetta has to offer-it truly is a fun car and I haven't seen any other has everything I could want and more. Pretty crummy that a cd player isn't standard on the top-of-the-line model. Unfortunately, the warranty is out and the problems are just increasing. The passenger driver side window went down and got stuck, the gas cover motor needed fixed and then replacing ($160), engine problem ($800+), driver side door not aligned properly, and the heat is no longer hot. For $25K, I expect my car to be reliable far past the 25K mile warranty.

Best Features

Blue dash lights, heated seats, window defrosters, moonroof and windows that close without having the key in the ignition

Worst Features

Sun visor that actually blocks the sun, cup holders bigger and in a more practical place, improve mechanical reliability
