2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
well built sedan-excellant handling, braking visibility-great stereo-cruise all day a 85mph-great for avoiding pot holes,back seat is for dogs or small people -I am 6'4" tall so not great for long rides behind the driver-just enough electronics as to not to act as a distraction

This car was one of the worst purchases i have ever done. It worked for maybe 2k miles just fine then after that weekly now i have to fix something with this car and the value of this car is so low that even fixing the smallest thing on it could cost you more then the car is even worth. its not worth it do not buy this car because the number one thing that will i guarantee go out is the transmission just take a second to look around because i can promise you even if you bought this car brand new it still would go bad in a snap.

Do your research before buying! It's a good car in many ways!,, But everytime I think all is well, something else goes wrong with it!! Now, it won't shift into 'overdrive'!! This is my work car, can't keep having it in the shop! Going broke fixing it. Any ideas out there on the 'overdrive' issue??? Thx!

The reviews on maintenance costs are spot on. In six years, I've reached double digits in calling a tow truck to come pick me up. x5 alternators, x4 window regulators (3 driver/1 passenger), cat converter, multiple hoses/wires seemed to have disintegrated or melted without known reasons, interior wood paneling is falling off (even double bubble wont keep them on and I used that fixing air planes). Also my black paint job began to fade shortly after the factory 10 year warranty. Now my black car mirrors a dalmatian, which I have begun to explain as it is a "custom fade" paint job. 700 words isn't enough to explain how many problems I've had since 2009.
It is somewhat quick. Additionally, the MPG is pretty good too. 65-70 freeway usually averaged around 34-36. A solid 50 could hold around 39. Other than the MPG, I can't really think of too much more that I enjoyed about this car. Blue dash lights?
Save your money and avoid this car at all costs. If you really want something that will get you from A to B, then this is not for you. The extended warranty is about as reliable as the car.
If you do end up purchasing this vehicle, you will be on a first name basis with at least two tow truck drivers. You may as well hold on to their business cards or put them on speed dial. Stay way from the 2002 models.
