2000 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS VR6 4dr Sedan


Review

My 2000 vr6 jetta was bought new, and now has 159k miles on it. Just replaced original front pads, rotors, and control arm bushings. I still have the original clutch. High quality components. There is no squeak, rattle, or false noise. The leather seats look like new, as does the clear coat, which I did not ruin by allowing ham fisted kids to scratch to oblivion. These are very well designed cars. There are a handful of weak components, with easy solutions. Coil packs crack after 70k miles. Solution: epoxy, and it will fix it and last forever. Some plastic parts in the cooling system will need to be replaced after 130-150k miles. Big deal, it's a car with miles on it.


Best Features

My original cup holders, which I still use, did not break, because I am not an idiot with mechanical devices. I love the exterior design. High quality leather and stitching, no rattles at all on railroad tracks or bumps. VR6 still pulls like a banshee, but keep those plug wires and coil in shape


Worst Features

Better wiper blades. I just replaced my first one after 10 years and 157K miles on the passenger side. Left side still good. I use rainex sometimes.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has got a beautiful interior, nice looking, body not rusting, but my wife and I are scared to take it anywhere. It sometimes starts and sometimes not. The mechanics can't find the problem, this gets expensive. All repairs on it are expensive. I'm a 200 lb man and not much room for me. I have a sore back and this car is very uncomfortable. My old beat up Dodge van is fine. I'd never buy another VW. It's not dependable. We have put so many repairs in it already. I will ride my Harley any day, much more reliable

Review

i have owned this car since new and it has given me nothing but good experiences, it has never left me on the side of the road and I've never had any problems with the engine or parts. It provides me with great gas mileage and they are very comfortable inside and for long trips. It has very smooth driving too. No problems and very reliable.


Best Features

engine is very good, stereo is great, smooth ride, good room for 4 people


Worst Features

keep making it for years

Review

After owning this car for five years, 2000-2005 and putting on 130,000 miles, I have to say i miss the car for its performance (modified of course), and the amenities for the price ie heated leather seats sunroof etc. I don't miss the car for its known problems, mass air flow sensor, window regulator clips, coil packs, etc. Overall i believe if i had kept the car stock i wouldn't have that many problems with it, but that wouldn't have been fun! Keep the car bone stock and it shouldn't give you as much problems, but good luck avoiding its known problems!


Best Features

Turbocharged 4 cyl, easy to modify, for 22k new included heated leather seats sunroof traction control


Worst Features

Should have had a 5 speed automatic rather than 4 speed, but NOT the craptronic 5 speed automatic!
