Wolfsburg Jettas are better
By RShepherd on


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


I have really enjoyed my Jetta Wagon.
The build quality is excellent with
none of the squeaks and rattles that
so often plague Puebla Jettas (all
wagons are made in Wolfsburg while all
No. American bound sedans are made in
Mexico).It rides better than just
about any small car (the Ford Focus
comes close)and has a tight steering
feel and excellent brakes. The
interior (especially leather like mine)
looks like an Audi and much better
than any other subcompact car. The
seats are very firm, but comfortable
for long-distance travel. If it were
stolen today, I'd buy another one, but
probably one with manual transmission.

Best Features

Ride comfort Steering feel Braking feel and performance. Quality interior Seating comfort and interior ergonomics Safety features including four wheel disc brakes, ABS, and side and side curtain airbags

Worst Features

Four-speed automatic sometimes shifts abruptly and sometimes gets confused as to what gear it should be in when slowing down from freeway speed and then re-applying throttle Reduce engine and road noise
