2003 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the second VW jetta I have had
within 4 and a half years. At first i
leased a 1999 new body style jetta
gl...roll up windows, hub caps, tape
players, the basics. I loved it!!!!!!!
That is why i went and leased another
one after my lease was up...a 2003 gls
with the works. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE
VOLKSWAGEN JETTA...everything about it
is great! Fun to drive, easy to handle,
and has some power to it as well for a
2.0.....

2003 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my Jetta in May after my old
car (a 94 Intrepid) all but exploded.
Buying a Volkswagen was the best thing
I've ever done. Not only does the car
look great, but it drives like I spent
$40,000 on it. Nothing else I've ever
driven has given me this feeling of
safety and confidence. In rain I no
longer have to worry whether or not I'm
going to fishtail. In nice weather I
know I have enough hampsters under the
hood to pass whoever I need to get
around. My fiance drives a 2003 Passat
and neither of us could imagine being
happier with our vehicles. Everyone
should drive a Jetta!


Best Features

Butt Warmers! (heated seats) The look of the dash, the trunk emergency escape, the stero, sunroof, sunvisor over the rearview mirror, I could go on forever...


Worst Features

Honestly there's not much, I wish there was a little more room in the backseat, but I drive with my seat pretty far back so that's half the problem.

Review

Leased the VW Jetta 09/2001.Jetta is a
2002 GLS automatic. Great car! Also had
a 1999. They have got to raise THAT
FRONT END! Way to low. Had plastic
window clips replaced. Windows would
fall into sleeve. Really my only
problems! Great car. Looking into a 3rd
in less then a year. Will trade ths
lease. Ya gotta drive one! The faster
you go,th better it drves! What
handling!


Best Features

My dashboard at night. Other drivers at night always look inside my car at a stop light. Comfort is great! Seats (not leather) are fantstic!


Worst Features

Raise the FRONT END! More storage for change,etc. Not enough compartments!

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


Review

I just purchased this vehicle, so I
can't address the issues of durability.
I can tell you that that if you drive
this car you will buy it.
It took me all of 50ft of a test drive
to say "I'll Take it" .
I was not expecting so much power from
the 1.8 T engine. Man, is this car fun
to drive, manual trans is very smooth
and easy to master. Many safty features
not available on any of the competitors.


Best Features

1.8t engine, smooth 5 speed, Monsoon sound, 4 wheel disc ABS, Moon Roof & Rims


Worst Features

Cup Holder!
