2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan


Traded in an SUV for this car when it was 3 years old and had about 30,000 miles. After getting over the initial shock of how tiny the vehicle was, almost everything has been positive since. This is the second-best car my family has owned (the first was a '98 Cabrio). We've had GM, Honda, Toyota, and Mitsubishi, but nothing like the tight handling of the VW. At 135k, still a quiet, smooth ride. We've been through two minivans in the time we've had the Jetta, and it might be time to replace the Jetta next, though it's showing no signs of quitting. Dealt with the CEL for the O2 sensor issue for about 4 years-- but not too much just to ignore. Also had some engine fan issues after 100k.

Best Features

Powerful V6 moves the car like a sports car; reliable ride and style that has stood the test of time

Worst Features

Everything is small in the vehicle-- some things could be made larger such as the buttons on the instrument panel. I never use the cup holder for its lousy placement.
