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

Review

This is the WORST VEHICLE I HAVE EVER OWNED!!! Since 900 miles, I have had extremely rough idle on cold startup. Finally, one year 4 service appointments later (including a visit to VW of NA headquarters in MI), they replaced the engine control module and seem to have solved the problem. Additionally, a $24K vehicle should not squeek and rattle as terribly as this, even on Michigan's pothole-infested roads! DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE LEMONS!!!

Best Features

Nice interior - if it weren't for the the squeeks and rattles!

Worst Features

Fully develop engine management software before bringing an engine to market! Address squeeks and rattles.
