2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My favorite car, fast, fun to drive and
lots of style. No need for an Audi or
BMW when you have the VW GLX VR6. Its a
great car with lots of features and you
feel safe


Best Features

Sport Suspension, the way it handles on the highway.

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I dont know VW can get away with
selling this piece of junk to people
and still laugh in people faces when
they turn to them for help. Sad part is
that there are still new people buying
this junk...Numerous problems with
mine: windows, check engine light seems
to live its own life, engine stalling,
finally pieces falling off. Worst car
I've ever owned.


Best Features

cant look at anymore...


Worst Features

Start taking responsibility for what you sell, instead flasihng public with some "..marvels of german engineering..." propaganda-phrases and then laughing at them when you get their money, truly sad experience. Ask you local VW mechanic!

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Don't buy this car. Has a lot of known
issues. If you browse through the
comments on this vehicle and you will
find out similar problems occuring to
too many people. Malfunctioning
expensive sensors, defective timing
belts, window regulators, mysterious
oil leaks etc. I had them all.Too many
people with similar problems cannot be
a coincidence. Don't let good looks
fool you. Quality is a joke in VW and I
learned it the hard way. And I can
guarantee the manufacturer won't stand
behind its product (though they are
aware of the problems). Better take a
little time and read the comments than
being sorry: all these people with
similar experiences can't be wrong.


Best Features

Cool interior and exterior design.


Worst Features

Quality is a joke. Very unreliable, very poor quality, terrible product support.

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have 6000 miles on a brand new GLI.
Its been in the shop for a cumulative of
20 days for the same electrical problem.
This electrical problem inhibits the use
of this car and makes it very
unreliable. VW will not take
responsibility and repurchase the car,
and it falls way into the ball park of a
Lemon.

Review

Well most problems that I have had are
cosmetic but nothing to serious. I am
now having a second problem with the
brake switch. All in all I love my
Jetta. I figure the problems I am
having could happen to any car. This
is an awesome car to drive and I love
driving. I am completely sold on VWs.


Best Features

The great handling of the car. I love being able to take sharp curves at 45mph and completely feel safe.


Worst Features

Redo the brake switch. Having problems 2 times with them is a little annoying. At least I don't have to pay for the repairs.
