It has its quirks, but I love it!

2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


My GLX seemed have led a rough life before I bought it, but fortunately, the guy religiously changed his oil. Many K-miles later, the engine is very quiet and very smooth. So, that gave me room to spend cash on all the neglected stuff...now it's a sweet ride. I've read a lot of these reviews, and one thing I've come away with is to NOT buy one of these Jettas w/ high miles if your not somewhat mechanically inclined or don't know a really good VW mechanic. But if you don't mind tinkering now and then, these cars can be a blast to drive, and customize as well. Despite their idiosyncrasies, there is a strong network of enthusiasts, many of whom will gladly share their knowledge and experience.

Best Features

Wood grain trim, heated power leather seats, great sound system, gobs of power, smooth shifting.

Worst Features

Power mirror switch (knob breaks off), front bumper cover can get caught on curb stops or built-up snow.
