2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Well, I've been very dissappointed in my Jetta. I purchased my car 11 months ago, and the transmission broke just before the one year mark. This car has always had problems. It jerks when it shifts gears, and when driven at high speeds on the freeway the car suddenly slows then jumps back up. Annoying lights on dashboard won't go away. Also has a loud clicking noise in turn signal area. Car reeks of crayons in summer. Burns motor oil like crazy. Only good thing about this car is that its great on gas. If you buy a Jetta, its best to buy a new one.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, interior lights, small compact design.

Suggested Improvements

Add arm rests, remove cup holders to different area, make roomier, and fix electrical problems!

This is uncanny. Multiple people have independently described the smell of my car as "brown crayon"...WTF
