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

Review

We purchaed a Jetta Wagon GLS 1.8T 5-speed. The steering is excellent, with some body roll evident, as we didn't get the Sport Suspension, but it's still manageable. The shifting is precise, and the car is QUICK, and stable at high speeds. We got every option you could get on the GLS except for the sport Suspension package, and still came in at $21.5k even. For a car with this many options, that's a GREAT price! This car needs nothing else to be a great and fun car for a small family.

Favorite Features

My favorite feature HAS to be the ENGINE. The new 1.8T with 180hp is such a joy to drive, and it makes passing on the highway, even in 5th gear, effortless. I have no fear of merging into heavy fast-moving traffic on the highway. Volkswagen was very smart to upgrade the engine to put out 180hp.

Suggested Improvements

The only things I'd like to see changed in the car are the cup holder and the addition of a powered driver's seat to the GLS. The cupholder is a concession to American driving habits, but having it over the CD player and various other electronic pieces is a spill waiting to happen.
