Love VW but it is not Reliable
By Paul on


2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T Turbo 4dr Sedan


This car was great until it hit 60,000 miles. The O2 sensor, vaccuum hose, turbo valve, strut mounts (poor design as they always break) all needed replacement and the check engine light is still on! We also replaced the window regulators but VW was nice enough to offer a good faith warranty. The locks don't always work on every door and the temp gauge works when it wants to. Overall this car is a headache but I love driving it when it works. The engine is awesome... too bad the quality of the car stinks and it is not reliable! I am not sure if I would buy a VW again.

Best Features

The turbo, 5-speed transmission, and smooth ride for a small car.

Worst Features

Fix the electrical issues and stop using the rubber coating on the interior. It scratches and rubs off.
