2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Within the first 1 & 1/2 I had brought my Jetta in 5 x's!. Window falling into the door, 2 x's for the ignition coils, 1 x for carbon build up (which the dealership said that this shouldn't be happening so soon) once for the check engine light staying on. I still haveproblem with my keys getting stuck in the ignition for hours. I have 4 other people at work that all bought VW's within a year or two that I did... ALL OF THEM WANT TO GET RID OF THEIR VEHICLES NOW!. VW was looking into replacing or repurchasing my vehicle and after 2 MONTHS of trying to get an answer from them, they finally told me that they weren't going to do anything.


Best Features

Peppy when it runs


Worst Features

improve quality. I spent more on a VW thinking I was going to have it for a while now I wish I used my $1600 rebate and spent less on a GM vehicle.

Review

We love this car, when your wife wants to drive it all the time you know it must be fun! Engine is great, easy functional design in cabin, predictable road handling and super quick. For everyday driving the turbo doesn't feel different, but when you floor it the extra poer is there, espcially on the highway passing. The only givaway this car is quick is the 17" wheels


Best Features

17 wheels, CD stereo, sunroof, leather seats, 1.8T engine, classic look


Worst Features

more rear cabin room-4 inches please.

Review

Very stylish and fun to ride. I recently had problems with the transmission though and that's why i had to take points off for reliability.
