2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


After my wife got a new car, a 2001 VW
Jetta VR6, I got a little jealous. So
when it came my turn to buy a new car I
bought a Loaded 2003 VW Jetta GLS 1.8T.

Unfortunately I just got into a major
car accident on Fathers Day (2004) that
ended up totalling my Jetta. And after
everything was over, I walked away with
very minimal injuries, a little cut on
my wrist from the front air bag, and I
hit my knee on the dash. All six air
bags went off, and this car saved my
life. And guess what, I'm going to buy
another one! Great gas mileage, and a
blast to drive!

Best Features

The performance of the great 1.8T, you gotta love it. And the great gas mileage, average was 30 mpg! Much better than our 2001 VR6. And I can't stress enough how safe this car is, thanks VW!!!!

Worst Features

Sacrifice a little bit of that great trunk for a little more rear leg room. Again, the dash cup holders still suck. They block the radio. Leather seats are better than the cloth, but still to stiff for my wife. I like them though.
