2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I think there are a lot of pros and cons to the car, yes it is a really fun car to drive and looks very sleek and stylish. It has an excellent powertrain warranty, but I have had lots of problems with the electrical system! Which of course started to break after the meager 2-year bumper-to- bumper warranty had expired. The VW's are VERY expensive to repair.


Best Features

Turbo, stereo, moonroof


Worst Features

I would like to see the electical systems more reliable, and a longer bumper-to-bumper warranty (which they have corrected for the 2002 model years). Don't charge so much for labor if they need to be fixed so much!

Review

I "WANT" to love this car. It's been tough though. I test-drive other cars and nothing is better then my Jetta. Yet, I don't trust it. I am disappointed in the electrical problems, yet love when it runs 'right.'


Best Features

Interior accomodations (steering wheel controls, power feature controls, etc.). I love the sport suspension, handling, and performance. The power off the engine is unbeatable too!


Worst Features

Water/rain condition control. Air 'intake' be higher then it is. Minimal flooding and heavy rains cause for major issues!

Review

I bought my 2001 VW Jetta 1.8T
Wolfsberg edition used in 2003. I've
had it for a year now and I love it.
I've had a couple 'recall' parts that
I've had to bring the car in for, but
they were minor and I was not having
any problems. My car is roomy, cute,
and fun to drive! I love all of the
little extras the manufactures put
into making this vehicle. It has been
a reliable, fantastic purchase. I
would definitely buy this car again.


Best Features

heated seats, monsoon audio system, blue/red dash lights (gets oohs and ahs from all my friends), cool rims, turbo!!

Review

I Bought this car from an induvidual
for 13K , with 47,000 miles on it .
The car was in outstanding condition .
Having heard the horror stories of
reliability , I purchased a 4 year
Extended Warrenty with unlimited
miles. After six months I've not had
any troubles what so ever . The cup
holders do block the CD player ,the
break pedal sits just a hair to high ,
and on uneven roads the dash around
the cupholder rattle the slightest
bit . The car is a blast to drive ,
and the interior is beautiful . The
inerior is on par with the Audi's and
BMW's I've seen . The Leather Seats
are beautiful . Braking is great. I
get 24\25 MPG on the hwy , and 19\21
in down , thats with correct tire
pressure .


Best Features

Heated seats , the blue and red dash lights , Sunroof , the cool VW Key , Sound system , Handeling ,Rainsense wipers , Full size spare tire , ASR , trunk size , Safety , he leather ,the Cup holders block the Cd player , but they are cool to show ppl :-P


Worst Features

Find a Better spot for the cup holders . Move the brake pedal down a hair. My advice to anyone who is buying a car , get an extended warrenty from a Private company . For a little over 1,000 $ I got a 4 year warr. that cover EVERYTHING but ths sunroof motor and covers $65P\h labor .

Review

Car ran great off the lot, then
noticed a lot of engine vibration 2
months later. Turned out to need new
cams and lifters (all covered by
warranty) Replaced mass airflow
sensor 3 mo. mark and window clips as
well, all covered by warranty.
Acceleration is great, shifting is
sluggish and spongie. Great interior
layout but seats are uncomfortable. I
enjoy the car it's just been a pain to
take it in so much when i've only had
it a half of a year. It seems odd to
replace the lifters and cams at 35,000
miles....


Best Features

interior styling, programable seats w/ remote memory too, 17" rims, responsive steering


Worst Features

fix the mass airflow sensor issue, better clutch and transmission, squeaks a whole lot, too much road noise
