Should you get a Jetta or a Civic?
By RLuvsVWbuddy on


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


I was beginnig to think that I had made
a mistake by buying this car until I
saw my neighbor's Civic. She had many
more problems than I did... and more
serious ones. I know what you're
thinking: He's not objective because he
owns a Jetta. My answer to this is: I
moved to a new country and again I was
faced with the decision of which car to
buy. After lots of research through
many sources I arrived at the same
conclusion: Get the Jetta before the
Civic. It may be a little more
expensive but you get a whole lot for
that small difference.

Best Features

Styling, safe, comfortable, torquey engine, fun to drive, good sound system. High on the coolness factor. Comfortable safe ride.

Worst Features

You have to replace the entire armrest if the front armrest lock breaks. Traction control should be available on the lower line models. The dash rattles on rough roads. The seatbelt would sometimes lock when in "resting position".
