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


When I was 18, I bought a new car to replace my '98 Ford Contour. My old car was unreliable, shameful, and boring. So for $12,500, I bought a 2002 Jetta 1.8T. This car is a perfect blend of practicality, power, class, and reliability. I get 23 mpg city/31 highway. The Turbo kicks into high gear, and gives you all the power you need . The interior? I have leather, heated seats, power windows, even a power sunroof. And now, almost 2 years later, STILL not one thing has gone wrong with it. Sure, I take good care of it, but Volkswagen has really given me a great product here. not a very big car, but extremely safe. So if you want a car that you can be proud of, for a good price, get one of these

Best Features

Power windows, sunroof, heated seats. Steering wheel volume controls, leather, beautiful dash at night. The powerful engine, smooth ride, tons of things

Worst Features

I hear the back seat is a bit small. Power seats would've been nice, but that's just nitpicking
