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


Just sold my jetta after 5 great years in it. bought the car w/7k miles on it. No issues until about 35k miles and the chrome strip on the right panel start to peel and had it replaced along with the catalytic converter (warranty). Around 70k the car would stall for a second and kick in under 1/4 tank gas. Never replaced the fuel pump, but I'm guessing thats the problem. The remote worked half the time around 50k miles as well. Other than that, I drove this car in all weather conditions and loved every moment of it through college. Sold it at 80k to another college student Great car! Drove it hard at times and it kept up with the abuse. Never paid a dime in repairs! LOVED IT

Favorite Features

Extremely fun to drive, interior even without the leather is fantastic, fuel economy is downright ridiculous, interior quality of the components seems higher (sit in one and you'll see what I mean), major components never failed on me or even came close, Looks and Feels great driving!

Suggested Improvements

Minor components need some work on how the vehicle gels as a whole. Although i never had an issue, I could tell the electrical system was not as robust (lights flickered sometimes), exterior molding chipped or came unglued, back seats are way too small for anyone to sit comfortably

Never spent a dime... Wow, I hope whoever bought the vehicle did not neglect it like you did. EVERY car requires repairs, German ones more so than others.
