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


I bought this car after owning 3 Accords in a row I was a little leery considering some of the reliability stories you hear of VW. This car has been great, even with the 2.0 4cyl it is fun to drive, the mileage exceeds their claim. The exterior styling isn't for everyone, but I like it. The Monsoon stereo is great. I have had no mech or elec problems. The only issues are that the air vents seem to get damaged easily and the seat cloth holds lint like mad. The cup holders are a pain, but I think that's a German thing as even BMWs have subpar holders. Just be sure to use a closed top lid unless you want to spend a weekend cleaning coffee out of the stereo like I did from the prev owner.

Best Features

Handling, steering feel, stereo, looks, reliability, ergonomics, grippy seats, fuel economy.

Worst Features

Better cup holders, sturdier air vents, grippy seats grip lint too.
