2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I test looked at the Corolla's,
Civic's, Mazda3, Sonata, and the VW
Jetta is the best of the bunch. The
jetta is a little more $$ then the
Corolla, Civic and Mazda3 but it's
worth it. Believe me the engines on
these Jetta's will go forever. Great
gas mileage, nice looks and drives like
a charm. Also good resale. I researched
this car and it's a great deal. Plus I
bought it with their 0% financing
promotion.


Best Features

Interior appeal ( I got the leather package), exterior looks, comfortable drive, good stereo for a factory stereo.


Worst Features

Power seats

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I bought my VW Jetta 2months ago. Had
problems first month. Huge vibration
in cabin, pedals, and steering wheeel
when in gear. Transmision shifting
problems. Car feeling like its gonna
die any minute now. No help from
Stuart Volkswagen, or Schumacher vw in
Wst Palm. Was told that nothing was
wrong with car. sent defect notice to
manufact. rep. found problem during
last fix attempt (what a surprise)
after a day without a car...problem is
still there. Dont buy this car if you
want reliability. Dont be deceived by
a great first drive. Problems come
after a month! Lemon law is the only
way to get answers from dealer.


Best Features

car drives great when its working or not in the shop.


Worst Features

Learn how to build a better car...and dont have your dealers make excuses for your product. Just fix it when customers come to you for help with a 2mth. old car!

Review

My new Jetta, with 166 miles on it,
lost the alternator belt and died on
me yesterday. The selling dealership
was absolutely terrible with how they
handled it. No sense of embarassment
whatsoever. This is my first (and
will be my last) VW. I bought it to
use as a reliable third car. Oops.


Best Features

Made it past 150 miles without breaking down.


Worst Features

Try to make the car so it can get to 200 miles without breaking down.

Review

I have been thoroughly pleased with the
performance of my Jetta and with the
service I have received from the
dealership. Although it's not perfect,
it's a smooth ride, I feel very
comfortable and safe, and there's
plenty of room for passengers and in
the trunk. My sales representative at
the dealership was straight-forward and
easy to work with- I got an excellent
deal and he has been helpful in my
follow-up phone calls with random
questions.


Best Features

ALL of the standard features (like the CD player, safety measures, trunk space, full size spare tire). I also like how you can pop the hood open with the small lever that comes out- it's much more convenient than feeling around for the latch to open the hood. And it's so pretty! :)


Worst Features

The trunk can be hard to close because of the hydraulic mechanism, but it's nice how the latch is on the sides of the trunk. Also, I have driven my Jetta predominantly in city traffic and don't think I'm getting good gas mileage-- I can't say anything about highway driving though.
