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


I've had this car for almost two years now and still walk outside and smile. I will have put almost 70,000 miles on it when I get to two years (I drive from site to site for work) and have had no issues I couldn't handle myself. While parts are expensive for the car, it is amazingly reliable. It may cost $60 to change the oil or $50 if you do it yourself, but you only have to change it every 8,000 - 10,000 miles because it uses fully synthetic oil. I haven't sensed any power loss after all this time and hope to keep this car FOREVER.

Best Features

The 6-speed transmission is much more reliable than VWs automatic transmissions which have had always had problems. The heated seats are to die for. So far this car has been extremely reliable.

Worst Features

Lower the price of parts. Lower the car itself. It handles corners much more smoothly when lowered than it did at stock height.
