2003 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I was surprised when I first test drove the new Jetta. I had been looking at many comparable new cars and once I drove the new Jetta, my mind was made up.


Favorite Features

The 6-speed manual transmission is a blast to drive. The recaro-style seats in leather trim give you that true euro- sporty feel. The car is quick with plenty of power in every gear.


Suggested Improvements

The only improvements I recommend are some styling cues within the interior and exterior as well.(A little dated). Also, the jerky, rubberband type feeling when shifting gears under pressure needs to be addressed.

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


Review

Great handling, fun car to drive...I've had a Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Corolla, Mitsubishi Mirage, Mitsubishi Galant and they all pale in comparison to my Jetta. The only thing I would change (if I could) would be the mileage. I got better gas mileage with the Toyota Corolla. But the difference in the ride is so great that the extra gas doesn't bother me.


Favorite Features

The trunk is HUGE. The seats are very comfortable and can be adjusted 3 ways. Also, driver's side window control locks. Great feature if you have small kids who play with buttons!!


Suggested Improvements

I can't honestly think of a thing to add. I love this car!!
