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

Review

The Jetta wagon looks great, is fun to drive, and can haul a lot of stuff...but it is not reliable. It has spent 30 days in the shop in one year. The problems have been sensor malfunctions, failed switches (casuing the car to be unable to switch out of park), and transmission problems (causing 4th gear to fail and the other gears to malfunction). VW dealer and customer service has been terrible. I have serviced the vehicle at TransOcean VW in Pasadena. I would not reccomend them. In additional to the mechanical problems, they dented the car.

Favorite Features

1) Fun to drive. Even though only 4 cylinders, it feels like a turbo. 2) Cargo capacity is excellent. The rear seats fold completely flat. 3) Looks and feels like a much more expensive car. Interior and exterior are made of quality materials.

Suggested Improvements

1) Needs to be much more reliable. A one year old car should never have serious mechanical problems. 2) VW customer service needs much improvement. 3) Increase in back seat leg room would be nice.
