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

Review

Love to drive the car. But you got to be kidding me with all the repairs. Bought with 60ish thousand miles. Added a custom intake, and sway bar for some fun in the corners. New wheels and tires. Somewhere in 70k the transmission went out. I just passed 118k and the transmission went out again. Replaced leaking radiator, head gaskets, cam adjuster seals, tail lights going out randomly and often (sometimes every couple days). That's just off the top of the head. All i can say is buy the warranty. Mine's paid for itself 3 times at least.

Favorite Features

Fun car to drive. Gotta love the power for such a tiny thing. Love the car when it's not falling apart.

Suggested Improvements

Reliability seems like an issue. Seems like some people have had good luck and some have bad. Cross your fingers.
