2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5M)


If it weren't for the near 50mpg milage,
VW would not be able to give these
pieces of crap away. You will
definitely need the extra fuel economy
to drive back and forth to the service
The power windows have broken twice;
some sort of "switch" in the brake
system failed which refused to allow the
car to be put into gear; the fuel filter
sprang a leak causing the injectors to
suck air.
That's just the top three list! You'll
also need to be ready to drop $800 at
the 40K mark to replace the timing belt.
I would *not* trust this vehicle on a
road trip.

Worst Features

Either close down the entire Jetta line or get some *real* QA going on the assembly line.
