2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The GLI VR6 is very comfortable. My car is loaded, leather and all and is so much fun to drive. The 6sp manual shift is very smooth and has great acceleration. It's a pretty peppy car for a 200 hp. I've owned several BMWs (540, a 3 BMW 330) and I would say the fun factor is close to a Bimmer but at 1/3 the cost. Only drawback is the gas mileage is so-so for a 6sp. I was expecting to get about 28-33 mpg but I avg around 25 mpg. My 330i (6sp) avg around 28 so I was expecting the VW to be equal if not better.


Best Features

Seats and so comfy!!


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Nice low profile tire & wheel help the steering response, though Goodyear RSA tire is not that good in dry/wet traction. Braking distance is kind of long due to small discs brake. ESP coupled with ASR standard in this car helped me in one emergency turn into a ramp off I-95 (driving too fast to pass one vehicle just before exit the ramp). A little disappointed with the color (silver) and date of manufacture (2004 model but date of manufacture is June 2003) but have no choice since this new vehicle is the leftover. Overall satisfied with this vehicle.


Best Features

BBS alloy rim. Monsoon sound system, 6 speed manual transmission. dual chrome exhaust pipe. ESP, ASR.


Worst Features

Bigger disc rotors.

Suspension, exhaust

Review

Just came off-lease on a 2001 Jetta
GLS VR6 and I had to have another.
Thought about buying my '01 until I
got behind the wheel of the '04 GLI
VR6. This car is a beast...love the
beefed up 24v engine, 6-spd manual and
17-inch alloys. Like my '01 Jetta,
the fit, finish, quality of my '04 GLI
are exceptional. VW continues to
impress with affordable performance!!


Best Features

The 200-hp VR6 and 6-spd manual transmission. Also, love the 17's with low-profile Eagles.


Worst Features

In-dash 6 disc changer, std fog lights (like Passat).
