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

Review

I decided on the Jetta 1.8T because it
provided a nice list of features for
the price, and I thought the 4cyl-turbo
engine provided a decent compromise
between performance and fuel efficiency.

The car has great ergonomics and is
comfortable to drive, but I've lost
faith in the car's build quality and
reliability.

I've had the car for 5000 miles. Here
are the problems I've encountered so
far:
1) A/C did not work out of the box.
Broken seal on the compressor had to be
replaced.
2) Vacuum line "fell off" the intake
manifold. Caused loss of power brakes
and engine stalling. Had to be towed.
3) Very poor gas mileage--18mpg (2mpg
better than my SUV!). Dealer is
investigating...

Best Features

Ergonomic design.

Worst Features

Improve the quality.
