Good at first but then......

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I loved this car for the first 60,000, then it was just problem after problem. I kept good care of the car but was having continuous issues with the water pump and other minor things. The major problem was the fact that a lot of parts in the engine were made of plastic so instead of replacing just a simple section of a part the whole thing had to be replaced. I averaged about $600 every time the car went in. About 2 years ago I spent over $2,400 at one time!! Recently the car had some more problems that included the fuel pump. I took the car in and the mechanic told me it was not worth fixing. The car had 119,000 miles on it. It did it's job. The sunroof was possessed.

Best Features

The handling of the car. Fun to drive through winding roads. The color. The laughs we got when the sunroof would open and shut whenever it wanted!!! Freaky!!

Worst Features

Less use of plastic parts.
