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


I'm surprised to hear about so many
major problems others have had. My car
has been pretty great. Last car was a
Honda Civic. The Jetta is fun to
drive, super peppy, comfortable, and
I'm getting about 30MPG. The car was
recalled for the coils (after I had to
be towed once because of poor behavior
related to the coils). Mechanically,
the Honda was perfect - never a
problem with it. The coil issues, and
frequently blown taillights, are
annoying, but all in all I'm very
happy with the Jetta. Mine was
manufactured/assembled in Germany - it
was the first year of the wagons.
