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