Mixed Emotions

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


I am approaching 30K on my 2001 GLX 5-
speed and am sad to say that I won't
own it long enough to reach 31K. I
love the look and all the neat gadgets
the Jetta has to offer-it truly is a
fun car and I haven't seen any other
has everything I could want and more.
Pretty crummy that a cd player isn't
standard on the top-of-the-line model.
Unfortunately, the warranty is out and
the problems are just increasing. The
passenger driver side window went down
and got stuck, the gas cover motor
needed fixed and then replacing ($160),
engine problem ($800+), driver side
door not aligned properly, and the heat
is no longer hot. For $25K, I expect my
car to be reliable far past the 25K
mile warranty.

Best Features

Blue dash lights, heated seats, window defrosters, moonroof and windows that close without having the key in the ignition

Worst Features

Sun visor that actually blocks the sun, cup holders bigger and in a more practical place, improve mechanical reliability
