Hasn't let me down yet. Yet.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan


I do love my Jetta, but it's got it's annoying quirks. First the CEL pops on for just about anything, especially with the AC in use. The front end makes loud thudding noises which no one can seem to cure. Lousy cup holder and cheap (and expensive) plastic interior parts. But the engine is still solid at 185,000 mi and it's a lot of fun to drive. Has also been very reliable without any major breakdowns other than a water pump, starter, and brakes. Given the age and miles it's expected. These cars are timelessly stylish, handle well, get great mileage (31MPG!), and can stand the test of time and distance as long as they are taken care of properly. It's overall a good quality car.

Best Features

Euro styling, heated seats, awesome monsoon sound system, great handling and cornering, sunroof, cool blue instrument and red interior lights, good uphill pickup, solid steel frame design, style that won't go out of style, overall easy and fun to drive car.

Worst Features

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT! Poor interior parts, cheap cup holder with bewildering placement right over the stereo. Frustratingly loud front end noises. Very non-user friendly do-it- yourself maintenance; just wait till you try changing a headlight bulb in this thing.
