It's been alright
By monkey801 on


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


I bought this car 2 years ago because I've always loved Jettas. Fell in love with it right away, it's definitely quicker than most would assume. Bought it with 118,000 miles. Since then I've had to replace the fuel pump, ignition coils (recall), and the hoses. These cars are expensive to fix! Aside from that it's still running strong at 136,000 miles.

Best Features

The turbo makes it very fun to drive, it handles better than other cars in its price range, I think it looks great, the 1.8t is cheap and easy to upgrade, lots of trunk space, traction control.

Worst Features

Better quality materials in the interior, BETTER CUP HOLDERS (I've lost an entire milkshake and two sodas on the floor), fix the lame latch on the glovebox.
