2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

As far as I can remember, VW has always been a part of my life. I grew up with a '77 Bug. At 16 years old, my first car was an '82 Rabbit convertible, and now, at 23, I drive a 2002 Jetta GLI. This is my realistic dream car - affordable, yet undeniably awesome! It is everything I could want - power, looks, comfort - all neatly packaged on 4 17" wheels. If you are planning to purchase a new sedan, you owe it to yourself to test drive a Jetta GLI first.


Best Features

2.8L 6cyl 200hp engine and a sweet 6 speed manual transmission


Worst Features

the location of the cup holders is inconvenient (blocking the radio)

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


Review

I to have had my windows fall in and my radio stop working, but it was covered under warranty and quickly fixed. I cannot complain about my Jetta, besides the few cosmetic failures, it runs great and is a fun car. The turbo is great to have, it gives the car some pep. I have owned 5 cars in the last 3 years and this is definitely the best.


Best Features

The blue lights, the turbo, all the safety features, and how the glove compartment and the trunk will not unlock with the valet key. Nearly everything!!!!


Worst Features

Move the cup holders.

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had my (2nd) jetta for over a year and put on a ton of miles. It is very fun to drive, I've had no problems and my dealership is fabulous to work with. I just wish it was a little bigger for leg room in back seat. Hard to take passengers.


Best Features

Love the stick shift. Love the monsoon sound. Love the heated seats!


Worst Features

Trunk space is great but would rather a little more leg room in back seat.

Review

I have had every part of the the fuel system replaced. the gas gauge moves from full to the 3/4 mark after only driving 20 miles. I never know how much gas I actually have. I am currently trying to get rid of it. My fourth VW I guess I was do for a lemon.


Worst Features

cup holder and someone who can figure out my problem
