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


I Didn't want an SUV but I did want the
flexibility to haul whatever I need
to. My wife and I chose the manual and
BOY does that Turbo have a nice kick to
it! Definitely get the Monsoon system
too it makes for great road trips. We
have had absolutelty zero rattling
sounds from this car. Cant understand
what was up with the editor's car. We
had looked at the Nissan Altima as well
but the interior materials do not
compare and it drove like a Dodge
Intrepid. (Nissan Sentra Spec-V now
that's a different matter, but too
small) We also looked at the Saturn
Wagon which had cheap interior
construction and ho-hum looks.

Best Features

Turbo Manual kick. And the "Sleeper" look to the wagon=more speed, less cops. Monsoon system is worth it.

Worst Features

Put in the new 270 hp W8 and all wheel drive and I may collapse and curl up in fetal position.
