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


So far, I have not had any major problems with this car unlike others that seemed to have lemons. I've only had to replace the spark plugs (40k), water pump (60k), and timing belt (60k). However, this is standard maintenance for Volkswagen cars. The interior lighting is amazing in this car. It feels like I'm flying an airplane at night! I agree that this car is not built for a tall person b/c there is little room in the back nor the front, but I'm only 5'5", So its perfect for me. The turbo is great in this car. It never hesitates when you punch it. Guess I got the good one.

Best Features

Interior Lighting, exterior design, engine and turbo performance, black leather seating

Worst Features

Better gas mileage. With the heat in Texas, having the a/c on burns fuel quickly especially when the car needs premium fuel. Work on the cup holders, they shouldn't block the radio and not above the shifting gear.
