2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Have had the car for 6 months and love
it. Extremely fun little car to drive
especially with the sport package. Have
had it in the shop for 2 minor issues
that were warranty related and were
taken car of very promptly.


Best Features

Turbo engine, heated seats, and fun to drive!


Worst Features

Bigger back seat i'm 6'2" and you basically can't sit behind me when I am driving(will be bigger in 2005 redesign from what I understand).

Vehicle

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

it's fun. turbo lags sucks. i wasn't
pleased with my car from the start. i
got my car in May 2003, i wanted
platinum gray with black leather
interior. but no black in all of
southern california, after getting my
4th choice, i had to get the plat.
gray w/ gray velour. yuck! gray is a
pain to keep clean. and velour smells
after a while. i mean, for $23k, i
would have rather paied $7 for a
325i. but hey, i'm happy with this
car for now. i'll get a new car next
year.


Best Features

tiptronic is a blast, design of the dash, the window controls light up, trhe air conditioning vents light up, the middle sunvisor


Worst Features

bi-xenon head lights, sun visors on tracks like the passat, dimming mirrors on all trims of the jetta, in- dash 6-disc just like the audi, standard foglights and computer throughout, and more...

Vehicle

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I wish someone would have told me the truth
about this car. Recent Volkswagens are
junk. The interioris peeling, the review
mirror casing fell off, and I've had to replace
three tires -- just from normal driving in Los
Angeles.

Vehicle

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


Review

My jetta is an ideal commuter! 55
highway miles each way to work and
after 18,000 miles I am averaging
49mpg.
The ride is comfortable, the seats are
great (love the heated seats in
winter), performance is impressive,
and I fill up once a week. I love how
this car drives!


Best Features

sunroof, heated seats, monsoon stereo, diesel engine.


Worst Features

outside temp indicator, foglights, and onboard computer that calculates mpg, miles until empty, etc.
