So far so good
By vwandsaabfan on


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


I recently purchased this car as a practical everyday driver and I am loving it. It is not very powerful, but the 2.0l does well enough. The manual gearbox is wonderful and is very fun. The car handles surprisingly well. I am happy with the fuel economy (average 29.5) and so far have not had any mechanical issues. There are a few squeaks and rattles from various places in the interior, but other than that the car is very clean. It is almost at 100xxx miles and still runs like a champ. The heater is also excellent in this car, which is important as I am from Wisconsin. I have put about 3xxx miles on so far and am very happy with this car.

Best Features

Very comfortable driving position, handling-ride balance, fuel economy

Worst Features

Base motor needs more power, cupholder is counter intuitive and blocks the radio when in use, a few rattles from various parts of the dash.
