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

Review

Bought this Jetta new in 2003. It has been a reliable commuter except for the usual VW problems. Replaced the plastic water pump at 75,000 miles. Also, the computer is very sensitive. Check engine light pops up occasionally. Changed mass air flow sensor twice, O2 sensor, coolant temp sensor three times. On the bright side, the Jetta is a smooth ride with a very comfortable interior. Love the heated leather seats! Still getting 32mpg on the highway after 6 years.

Best Features

Heated leather seats. Smooth ride. Child seat anchors. Monsoon stereo. Fuel Economy. Exterior styling - New Jettas look like Toyota Corrollas!

Worst Features

2.0L engine underpowered for this car. Sensitive computer.
