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


When I purchased my 2003 Volkswagen Jetta, it only had 47,000 miles on it. Not bad considering it was already three years old, and there was only one owner before me. I put at least almost 40,000 miles on it in two years, and it has not been bad, but when I first got it the wheel alignment was so off that I had to replace the rear CV joints and purchased new tires TWICE for the rear. Volkswagen should keep manufacturing in GERMANY and stop being so what I call America Cheap. That is when large corporations instead of paying export fees opt to manufacture in less expensive countries, which turns out to be more expensive for the consumer. I have compared the 1996 with the 2003. Keep trying

Best Features

6 air bags Horsepower acceleration.

Worst Features

No more manufacturing in Mexico. Think green, time to invest in HYBRID technology, especially for the Jetta or the Passat.
