I loved my car, but it was unreliable.

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


I got a jetta turbo. the timing belt blew, then the tranny went out. i sold it cheap and bought a bug. I loved the jetta. I would buy another one, but i fell in love with the bug. make sure you check the history with any foreign car. especially make sure the timing belt was changed before you bought it and that the oil has been changed regularly. And don't let the VW dealer lie to you and steal your money.

Best Features

Cute car, fast, and fun to drive.

Worst Features

Better reliability. Timing chains. and put a transmission dipstick in, so i can check my transmission fluid.
