Should you get a Jetta or a Civic?

Vehicle

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

Review

I was beginnig to think that I had made a mistake by buying this car until I saw my neighbor's Civic. She had many more problems than I did... and more serious ones. I know what you're thinking: He's not objective because he owns a Jetta. My answer to this is: I moved to a new country and again I was faced with the decision of which car to buy. After lots of research through many sources I arrived at the same conclusion: Get the Jetta before the Civic. It may be a little more expensive but you get a whole lot for that small difference.

Favorite Features

Styling, safe, comfortable, torquey engine, fun to drive, good sound system. High on the coolness factor. Comfortable safe ride.

Suggested Improvements

You have to replace the entire armrest if the front armrest lock breaks. Traction control should be available on the lower line models. The dash rattles on rough roads. The seatbelt would sometimes lock when in "resting position".
