2003 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am very disappointed in my Jetta. I have had continuous problems that seem to indicate poor quality construction. The include bad electric window mechanisms, broken driver seat mechanism, bubbling paint on hood, cracked front spash guard in cold weather, easily broken knobs on interior controls, easily stripped anti- theft lug nuts on tires (making it imposible to change tire) and flimsy carpet mat fasteners. I would not buy another Jetta or VW product. The legendary quality is no longer there.

Review

This IS the perfect car if you are looking for excellent handling, a wonderful ride, and a car that is a joy to drive at a reasonable price. I love German engineering!!!


Best Features

The manual transmission with the turbo makes the car really fun to drive! The cold Weather package is a must and the monsoon stero is very nice!


Worst Features

The compartment on the middle arm rest falls open too easily when it is in the up position.

Review

This Jetta has been very good to me. After having a 2001 GLS automatic and a 2001 manual, this is the best I've driven. The heated seats and mirrors are perfect for the Minnesota winter. Braking is well beyond above average, and even though HP might not be a huge asset, the ride is smooth and the highway torque while passing is just perfect. If you are looking to buy an Audi A4 or BMW 3-series, save your money and buy this reliable, fun car.


Best Features

- European look - Interior (looks, ergonomy) - Fuel Economy - Braking power - Trunk capacity - Luxury features (heated seats, sunroof, Moonson sound)


Worst Features

- Rear seat room needs to be enhanced - Shold have fog lights in the bottom part of bumper - Should come with 5-speed auto
