Vehicle2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewMy wife and I have been looking at the
Jetta Wagon for some time. I really
wanted the TDI, however, California is
run by eco-crazed politicians who do not
permit the sale of any TDI version of
VW. In any event, we settled (lucky for
us) for the 1.8T. This is the same
engine in the Audi A4 but tuned down for
marketing purposes. We also opted for
the Sport and Winter packages which make
for a great ride even on cold mornings.
The leather seats are very nice and firm
(which happens to be my preference). I
will switch to synthetic oil after the
first interval to help the warmer
running turbo engine last longer. We
love this car to death.
Best FeaturesThe car is made in Germany. Interior and Exterior styling and engineering. Leather seats with infinite recline. Huge rear cargo space for a compact wagon. Sport and Winter package. More than enough power from the engine. Airbags, so many I think the car inflates in an accident;)
Worst FeaturesInclude the First Aid Kit and Hazard Triangle with the vehicle rather than selling them as an accessory even though specific space is provided in the rear cargo area. Better license plate frames. Synthetic oil from the start.
