2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Amazing what 4 cyl, turbo, and German
engineers can do. As former engineer,
am picky. Found attention to detail
superior to any other. Every inch has
purpose. For 03 they smartly combined
savings of GL int. with performance of
1.8T. Engine has economy of 4 cyl. but
pep of turbo. Was willing to give up
leather/sunroof for 1.8T. With stick,
it flies. Amazingly, the "base"
interior LOADED. ANY other brand in
base interior would leave you with
deficit in comfort or performance -
requiring extra $ in aftermarket

Best Features

overall performance and comfort

Worst Features

Cup-holder is compact and efficient, BUT while in use it obstructs the CD player. Tint necessary to keep enemies/admirers from peering in to see what they are missing.
