2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


The car handles, performs, is responsive, and rides smoothly on these 17" tires, just as it should for a car stickered at $27,895. It has an excellent interior design with high quality materials. It has better leather than the GLSs. The 8-way power seats have nice touch memory. One negative, mine has had a few little electrical problems. Cruise would only work intermittently or the cruise light would come on and would not go off. It has been very difficult for my service center to figure out when it is not doing it when they have and they have not been as nice as tey could be. VW moved its assembly to Mexico and I would like to see if more problems have arisen.

Best Features

The memory seats Tiptronic shifter, exterior design, interior cabin, smooth ride, and the ability to upgrade (modify) the car with so many aftermarket products.

Worst Features

VW has seem to feel discontinuing it is an improvement. So if you have one of these keep it. I believe almost nothing out there can touch it Maybe put a turbo diesel engine or turbo corn oil. Whatever they come up with. Also, improve the electric components.
