2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLI VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)
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
The blue and red lighting and VR6
powerplant. I like the overall
ergonomics as well.
Definitely more rear leg room. Just a
tad bit tight back there!
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

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

OR change location of CD/Cassette player.
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
