A Nice Ride
By Goodriver52 on


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


My Jetta GL has 128,000 miles on it now and still has the original front brakes, exhaust system and clutch. The 2.0 liter 4 gets excellent gas mileage and the 5 speed manual trans is fun to use. I take it to the dealer for servicing every 5000 miles. Maintenance is expensive but well worth it. This car has been trouble free and I hope to get at least 300,000 miles before letting her go. Even tho the 2.0 is not a muscular engine it is very smooth. This car's handling is tight and very maneuverable.

Best Features

Reliable engine. Good mileage with tight handling. All body seams are about 1/8" and that shows good build quality. Good trunk space for its size.

Worst Features

I wish I had cruise control.
