Won't buy another car until this one EXPLODES!

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I have owned this 2003 VW Jetta, since 2006, bought w/23788 miles. It now has 196483 miles, still on its original clutch, its fifth set of tires. The first set went via burning rubber on launches for the first 20k of my ownership. If any portion of this car has a problem it would be caused by my abuse. I've only replaced the timing belt twice, and its still good as new. Interior is still as new except driver side entrance bolster. The engine has only gotten better and the transmission easier to shift. This car is miles of smiles for the dollar, and should be tops on your list. 31 mpg on long drives, 25-27.3 in town avg. Keep tire pressures all around at 4 lbs under max, for best handling!

Best Features

Once broken in the transmission is the smoothest in the business, the blue and red dash lights, and that all the buttons on doors and dash vents light up too! Denim like fabric, deep bolsters, tie downs in the trunk. The Monsoon sound system rocks, makes your hair move, with subwoofer deep bass, from just two rear door speakers, 1 per door. Hold the open knob for roof, after it has opened, in open position to fully open sunroof.
