2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I was actually looking to get Mazda 3 or 6 went I went to the dealership. Both were kinda blah when I decided to try the Jetta (the dealership had both Mazdas and VWs). The 4 cylinders were blah as well but when I got behind the wheel of the V6, I knew that was it. The suspension is sporty, acceleration quick, and the handling was that stiff but smooth feel you expect from a sportscar. I had heard that the past Jettas were crappy but so far so good. Getting into my car is definitely a highlight of my day. The dash has an austere look to it. Nothing but the essentials, very unlike most cars that clutter up their dash. Very happy with the Monsoon soundsytem.

Best Features

Heated seats! I don't think I can live without them now. The acceleration and handling. Sporty interior. Oh, and I get constant compliments on the rims.

Worst Features

I miss the digital info from my old Passat for trip odometer and temperature. More options for interior color for the GLI.
