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


Review

Car is all-around solid. Great interior design with blue and red instrumentation, comfortable seats, simple layout. Performs well, especially fond of acceleration. A sedan, yes, but don't count on fitting large people in the back seat unless the driver and front passenger are each 5'3". Tiptronic is cool but slow.


Favorite Features

Monsoon sound system, sunroof, heated seats, performance of 1.8t engine.


Suggested Improvements

I've read some reliability complaints, but I've had no problems myself after 600 miles. As long as car stays in good shape given the level of performance it provides, I'm happy!

Review

This vehicle is fun to drive and handles the road well, great car for the money. Would recomend this car for a comute and for a young adult looking for something that is reliable and good looking, and not a gas gussler.


Favorite Features

interior lighting and it's silver space age trim.


Suggested Improvements

Needs armrest on the passenger and driver's seat. could also put a rear vent for the passenger's in the back seat.

Review

It's a really nice ride. It's typical European firm but comfortable. Engine is strong. It runs so easy to 85 and 90 miles per hour you don't notice how fast you're going. Nice handling. Leather seats, firm, sporty, and very comfortable. Tranny isn't silky smooth...first gear spins the tires on demand. Traction control is very nice and so is the antilock brakes...Back seat a little cramped but not important for me. Really nice sounding stereo. Getting 23+ in city and 28+ MPG on highway going 75.


Favorite Features

Acceleration, safety, stereo, interior quality, great looking dashboard and look at night.


Suggested Improvements

Make the car about 2 inches longer and put the extra room into legroom in the back seat.
