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

Review

this car, despite a 115-hp base engine, is a lot of fun to drive. it is comfortable, roomy, as safe as anything in its class. sleek styling. fuel economy is consistently 24-26 mpg, even in the city. ride is smooth; handling is great. the car does not accelerate quickly through lower gears, unless pushed, but once in third moves fast. cruises well at high speeds. the 2.0 base engine is said to be more reliable than the turbo, and with a stick it's still fun to drive. leather interior and sunroof give this car the feel of others costing more; it compares favorably to the volvo v40. overall, it's a sleek, safe, reliable, well priced, fun to drive car.

Best Features

one-touch sunroof; space-age blue dash lights; leather seats & steering wheel; six air bags; very solid doors; stick-shift and suspension = fun to drive; good fuel economy (rated 24/31); smog emissions above- average; simple design; easy-to-read dash; huge cargo area; looks great!

Worst Features

* cup-holders are poorly positioned. * seat adjustments aren't great. * a/c is ok, but not great.
