Bought this car brand new fully
loaded. Have only had one problem with
coils, but was replaced under
warranty. My wife drives it and loves
it. I plan to upgrade with a chip once
off warranty, but it has pretty good
power stock. Love the quality of the
car, even though it costs a bit more
than comparable sedans. Would
recommend the car to anyone. One
dislike is having to replace the stock
tires after 20,000 miles, and the 17
inchers are pricey. Otherwise, love
the car, and I plan on looking at a GTI
with the 1.8T for myself.
Quality is excellent for a small car.
Also, love the little extra features VW
puts on their cars. i.e. the chrome
piece that covers the trunk latch when
open so grease doesn't get on your
clothes if you have to lean in.
Wish the 1.8T manual came with a short
throw shifter. Otherwise, no
This is my 2nd Jetta. Ever since my
1st Jetta was totaled when an idiot
ran a stop sign (Yet not a scratch on
me!!), I couldn't wait until I could
afford a brand new Jetta.
The 1.8 Turbo is the perfect size for
this car. The pickup is great, the
brakes and steering are nice and
tight. The shifting is smooth.
Spacious trunk. The sport seats give
you a nice snug fit. Great for long
LOVE LOVE LOVE!

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Ive only owned it for 3 months, but so
far so good. Gas mileage is very good,
around 28mpg, city/highway. Saved a
whole bunch on insurance due to all the
safety features it came standard. Car
is fun to drive, but not very roomy in
the backseat. Wish it had a 6th gear,
but i guess its there so you can pass
cars easly when your going 80 in 5th
Dashboard lights, 10 million airbags,
ASP system (traction control) handy in
snow, heated seats, one touch UP on pwr
6th gear, but the 04 already has it,
pack more punch out of the 2.0 liter,
please , make roomier seats in the
rear, who need all that trunk space.
Also, whats up with the knob to adjust
