2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This is a love/hate review. I love the looks, the 17" wheels, the ride and performance. I don't like the lack of seat space when you fold down the back seat and use the car as a wagon. I am 5'7" and had to move my seat forward to make room for the folded back seat. If you need a wagon as a wagon, I would suggest you try something else. Another issue showed up immediately. The driver seat keeps heating when you think it's turned off. I turned on the front seat to heat myself up after buying the car. Once I was warm, I couldn't get the seat to turn off. So much for one day with the car.

Favorite Features

Turbo, Monsoon sound system and 17" wheels.

Suggested Improvements

Better storage space for the driver cabin: cup holders (what we are given is a joke), CD holder, garage door opener. And better quality inspection.
