Great car, but....
By jonnyGURU on


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


What bugs
me is the little, stupid failures in
attention to
detail. The power window's cable clips
inside the doors broke (replaced), the
latch for the center console broke, the
rubberized surface on some of the
plastic interior pieces is peeling, the
rear windows washer leaks, and the
center caps on my front two wheels FELL
OFF. The check engine light just lit up
too. Car drives great. Quiet, smooth.
Like I said, the little details suck.

Best Features

Plenty of power for a small 2.0 and a high curb weight. Loads of room. Comfy seats. Monsoon stereo is NICE.

Worst Features

Don't rubberize the plastic trim if the rubberization is going to PEEL. Use snap on center caps and not GLUED ON. Use a metal latching device on the center console. Not tiny little plastic pieces.
