An Audi in hiding
By ajl on
Vehicle
2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
For those of you looking for a "drivers" small car, look no further. We bought our Jetta Wagon used with 39k on the odometer. It has been trouble free with about 56k miles as I write this. This car is fun to drive, whether around town or on the highway. Not a sports car, the handling is more then adequate for fun and the ride is firm, but not harsh. This car is basically an Audi (shares a lot with the Audi A4), not an Old Beetle. Parts and service can be pricey,especially if you don't do some things yourself. German cars are fussy about being maintained. If you don't MAINTAIN, you will have to FIX. True of all cars, very true of German makes. Keep that in mind and enjoy your Jetta!
Favorite Features
Ride, handling, power from the 1.8T,comfort of the seats and interior. In our wagon version, an all around good car. Lots of versatility, lots of fun.
Suggested Improvements
Fuel economy isn't great (17mpg on premium fuel around town, I live with lots of hills though) interior a bit tight, especially for taller folks, some squeaks and rattles from inside and out. Anything I could suggest has been improved by the new version! (05-up)
