2002 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This is a very fun car to drive - we bought prior to birth of 1st child and expected to have it for 10 yrs. Now expecting 2nd child we realize two car seats will not fit the very shallow back seat. I have not experienced many of the mechanical/interior issues as other posters.

Best Features

Very comfortable, thoughtful ergonomics; steering wheel allows full view of dash; well lit dash (purple); great cargo space; good turn radius - always fit tight parking; Good if you only want to tote around one child in middle of back seat.

Worst Features

Front seat adjustment wheel is cumbersome to turn; drink holders block air vents; cruise control settings are hidden behind steering wheel on turn signal arm; BACK SEAT TOO SHALLOW FOR 2 CAR SEATS (baby & toddler) - forces front seats too far forward.
