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

Review

When it's in operating condition, the ride is awesome and fun. Comfortable, stylish & unique features on the interior. I like the way it drives and the comfort, but there's been just too many problems with it to recommend it to others. Window fell into the door, oil plan needed replaced, some computer sensor for $180, serpentine belt and I've had to replace the same headlight bulb twice w/in last 30K miles. Interior parts look nice but they break easily and are expensive to replace. Trunk latch snapped in cold weather, console latch busted & cup holder broke ($160 for a new cup holder, for example). Just found out the cooling fan is broken ($500). Everything is expensive to fix.

Favorite Features

Comfort, style, leather seats, sunroof, flashy interior, zippy, confident engine when up to snuff. Many features even with standard models.

Suggested Improvements

Bring back the solid German engineering VW has became known for. Put a few extra dollars into solid interior parts. Engine reliability has got to improve. Mine is at 125K, which is high, but should not have all the problems it does being sold Certified over only 80K miles. Check around more.
