Great Car - Only minor complaints
By Pat K. on


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


8 months and almost 10,000 miles.
Great acceleration and handling. Cargo
capacity is phenomenal.

Lame cupholders. The leather is stiff
and feels "vinylly." Monsoon sound is
great, but I have speaker wire rattles
in at least two speakers. I also have
a rattle in the dash, giving concern
for long-term durability. Rear knee
room is also underwhelming, but
adequate for adults on short trips.

The Jetta Wagon GLS, 1.8T 5A delivers
what it promises - exciting driving and
the ability to carry a suprisingly
large amount of cargo.
