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


Review

Driving my Jetta has been great-the
engine is wonderfully responsive,
especially in 2nd & 3rd gears. Powerful
enough to have fun, not so powerful
that I get into trouble. The interior
is of great quality, but the ergonomics
aren't great - stereo and HVAC controls
are a stretch. Seat could be more
supportive. Dealer has never been able
to completely fix a passenger side
window glitch.


Best Features

BBS wheels, lovely stereo, lively acceleration and handling, tan/black interior.


Worst Features

Smooth 1-2 shifts are impossible for me. Too many recalls (4 in 2.5 yrs). Goopy glue leaks out of doors after rain. Styling could be more distinctive. Memory setting for power mirrors.

Too many hours spent in the shop to
repair/replace electrical problems,
check engine light problems, oxygen
sensor and brake sensor problems.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It must depend on where and on what day
your jetta gets built. I see that some
of the reviewers think this is a good
car. Well ours isn't. It get very poor
gas mileage for a 4 cyl car. We have
already had the tires replaced at
40,000 mi. and the brakes had to be
replaced at 27,000 mi. The plastic
section below the grill has come off
twice. The car is noisy and has no
power. It does look nice.


Best Features

Appearance.


Worst Features

Put some money into the handling and noise reduction and use better quality parts. This car is all marketing (show) and no substance.Avoid it.

Review

The look of the car was the first thing
that caught my eye..I should have
looked away. No major mechanical
problems, just really annoying quality
ones. The car squeeks like crazy, from
everywhere! The dashboard, the front
end, the steering column, etc. I had to
be towed out of my own driveway when
the computer failed and the car
wouldn't go into gear. Now my
directional signals don't work. The
dealerships mechanics are terrible,
what's the use of a warranty when they
keep telling you nothing is wrong? For
this money you should buy something
else.


Best Features

The dashboard lights are cool, but not cool enough to make me keep this car.


Worst Features

Start over.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great Car...Really! If you are looking
for a Good car with classic lines, that
you will continue to love even when
things don't always go perfectly, then
the VR6 is a great choice. The car
rides well on the highway and well
paved secondary roads..on choppy
roads at low speed it can be a little
unconfortable. High Speed handling
and peformance 220 klm is
exceptional, the sweet spot is 120
mph.. The passing power really
surprises many V8 american cars i.e


Best Features

Interior quality ( heated leather seats, functional rear locking seats, power one touch sunroof one touch frt windows, and multifunction lighted steering wheel..


Worst Features

Reliabilty.. Improved gearing for lower speed acceleration. Offer the 4motion option and a equivalent to audi S program with clear distinction between the performance VW and the lesser model i.E TDI
