2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I got this lovely little VW eight years ago after driving an old model Ford Explorer and I loved the change! The Jetta has been so reliable and comfortable. Not to mention much better in gas mileage. The console is very convenient with all knobs and buttons within an easy hands reach. Very comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Not to mention a HUGE trunk for such a small car. Very well crafted and sturdy. I always felt safe driving her. In almost eight years, she only was in the shop once for a sensor failure. With punctual oil changes and maintanence, the Jetta will run like new for a loooong time!
Good gas mileage. The version I drive has heated seats.
A little higher bumper, I sometimes caught it on parking lot curbs...
