2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I bought my car two months ago and it
has been a disaster. In the first
month a vibration started in the
steering column and the foot pedals,
seats and doorsills. Took it in and
the dealer said live with it. Then the
transmision was having trouble; again
they said live with it..vibration still
there...then they said the turbo
charger had a problem..but they didnt
fix it ..just deleted the code from the
cpu. I am not gonna live with it...no
one should. Finally it was
admitted to me that there were three
problems..but that was on their final
repair attempt.
what a coincidence!

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I test looked at the Corolla's,
Civic's, Mazda3, Sonata, and the VW
Jetta is the best of the bunch. The
jetta is a little more $$ then the
Corolla, Civic and Mazda3 but it's
worth it. Believe me the engines on
these Jetta's will go forever. Great
gas mileage, nice looks and drives like
a charm. Also good resale. I researched
this car and it's a great deal. Plus I
bought it with their 0% financing
promotion.


Best Features

Interior appeal ( I got the leather package), exterior looks, comfortable drive, good stereo for a factory stereo.


Worst Features

Power seats

Review

I bought my VW Jetta 2months ago. Had
problems first month. Huge vibration
in cabin, pedals, and steering wheeel
when in gear. Transmision shifting
problems. Car feeling like its gonna
die any minute now. No help from
Stuart Volkswagen, or Schumacher vw in
Wst Palm. Was told that nothing was
wrong with car. sent defect notice to
manufact. rep. found problem during
last fix attempt (what a surprise)
after a day without a car...problem is
still there. Dont buy this car if you
want reliability. Dont be deceived by
a great first drive. Problems come
after a month! Lemon law is the only
way to get answers from dealer.


Best Features

car drives great when its working or not in the shop.


Worst Features

Learn how to build a better car...and dont have your dealers make excuses for your product. Just fix it when customers come to you for help with a 2mth. old car!

Review

My new Jetta, with 166 miles on it,
lost the alternator belt and died on
me yesterday. The selling dealership
was absolutely terrible with how they
handled it. No sense of embarassment
whatsoever. This is my first (and
will be my last) VW. I bought it to
use as a reliable third car. Oops.


Best Features

Made it past 150 miles without breaking down.


Worst Features

Try to make the car so it can get to 200 miles without breaking down.
