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


What can I say? I am now forever a loyal VW buyer. This car is absolutely amazing. I have the 2.0 with a 5 speed manual. Plenty of power even when fully loaded. I can set the cruise at 70 with people and gear in the car and pull the Grape Vine without losing speed. Awesome. The torque is also amazing. At 1800 rpm in top gear, it will accelerate. Not bad.

Best Features

I love the driver's seat. It is adjustable every which way and the telescoping wheel, I have space no matter what. The transmission is perfect and the mpg is great. I consistently get 28 mpg in town and 35 mpg hwy. With a 14.5 gallon tank, that works out to 406 mi. city and 507.5 mi hwy.

Worst Features

I would like an extra gear for freeway cruising. While the mpg is good, with a 6th gear, the revs could be at 2500 at 70 mph rather than 3200. That would give the car Civic type mileage and hybrid type range. Yowza!
