2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I was originally going to buy my Jetta
with a mind to use it as a commuter
vehicle. With that in mind, I was
looking at the TDI as a powerplant.
When I went to test drive at Frema
Motors in Goldsboro, I fell in love
with the VR6. Wow!!! What a ride!!!
With a 6-speed manual transmission and
200 ponies under the hood......well
lets just say it was an unbelievable
experience. The ride was road hugging
with the sports suspension, with plenty
of acceleration for needed get up and
go!!! Simply stated, it was the best
experience overall I have ever had on a
test drive! Two thumbs up for the GLI
VR6 Jetta!!!!!!!!!


Best Features

The blue and red lighting and VR6 powerplant. I like the overall ergonomics as well.


Worst Features

Definitely more rear leg room. Just a tad bit tight back there!

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


Review

I have had the car for over one year
now and am generally pleased with the
vehicle. I have had a problem with the
clutch pedal losing pressure a few
times and also the rear seat unlocking
when in the folded up position. It is a
very solid car with great handling on
the road. It could use a little more
zip than a 2.0 offers, but for a blend
of economy and preformance, it is a
great car.


Best Features

Great handling.


Worst Features

More rear legroom, cupholder placement

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love this Jetta. I have recommended
this car to a lot of people. It is so
smooth and comfortable to drive. I have
even taken it to my other home which is
10 miles up a dirt mountain road, it did
great.


Best Features

Comfort, Style, Handling ease, and so many airbags tell me of the safety features.


Worst Features

Change location of drinking cup holder OR change location of CD/Cassette player.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I've only been driving my 03' Wolfsburg
5spd. for a few days, but I must say
that I am pleasantly surprised with my
initial impression of the car. The
build quality is very tight, and the
materials are of high quality. I
was/am definitely nervous about Mexican
build quality, but initially it's
great. The seats are fantastic, the
engine performs strongly, it's quiet,
and the standard stereo sounds great.
This is my first "European" car (I've
only purchased Japanese cars before),
so I'm definitely nervous about
reliability. Hopefully, I will be
lucky!


Best Features

Seats, Stereo, Engine, Number of standard airbags, standard ABS brakes.


Worst Features

Nothing yet, and I hope it stays that way.
