2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have been thoroughly pleased with the
performance of my Jetta and with the
service I have received from the
dealership. Although it's not perfect,
it's a smooth ride, I feel very
comfortable and safe, and there's
plenty of room for passengers and in
the trunk. My sales representative at
the dealership was straight-forward and
easy to work with- I got an excellent
deal and he has been helpful in my
follow-up phone calls with random
questions.


Best Features

ALL of the standard features (like the CD player, safety measures, trunk space, full size spare tire). I also like how you can pop the hood open with the small lever that comes out- it's much more convenient than feeling around for the latch to open the hood. And it's so pretty! :)


Worst Features

The trunk can be hard to close because of the hydraulic mechanism, but it's nice how the latch is on the sides of the trunk. Also, I have driven my Jetta predominantly in city traffic and don't think I'm getting good gas mileage-- I can't say anything about highway driving though.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I used to drive a piece of crap
Oldsmobile Alero...and well you can
probably guess why they are no longer in
business. I will never buy another
American car at least for awhile. I
listened to a friend's advice to get a
VW (she drives the Golf and loves it)
and what an excellent choice I made. The
car looks and drives like a dream car.
It is sleek and very modern looking. It
is excellent on gas and drives well on
the highways. I love it when people's
heads turn when they see my Jetta!


Best Features

The Monsoon radio is excellent. You will be a proud owner while holding the modern looking key. I love the awesome color selection to the way the tires look. I feel safe driving this car due to all the standard safety features.


Worst Features

With all pros there are some negatives. The only negatives I can think for this car is I wish it were made a little bigger. I am in college and have friends that I drive around. It gets a little crammed in the back seat.

2004 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GLI 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

What more could you want in a $25,000
car? It has every option that is
available for the Jetta and a custom
interior. The ride and handling are
superb. The 18" wheels add even more
handling and style. The six speed
transmission gives you torque and
flexibility throughout the gears. The
body kit is subtle but sets it apart
from other Jettas. With minor
modifications, this car can really
scream and still get 30 mpg.


Best Features

Styling, safety, and performance. The build quality is fantastic. Enough said.


Worst Features

Even more power!

Review

My VW Jetta is great. I get great gas
mileage and love driving the car. It
has good pick up and drives great. The
one thing I would change about the
interior is the color. I have black
and it is so HOT in the summer. Other
than that, I have no complaints about
the car. Volkswagon is wonderful
company to deal with. I highly
recommend the car to everyone.


Best Features

Being able to open the windows with the key from the outside. The safety features are great.

Review

VOLKSWAGEN HAS REALLY HIT THE SPOT
WITH THIS CAR. I OWN ANOTHER JETTA,
BUT THAT ONE CANNOT COMPARE TO THE GLI
1.8T! I WAS HAVING MY CAR SERVICED,
AND I COULD NOT HELP BUT TO NOTICE
THIS BLUE LAGOON JETTA. I SAID TO
MYSELF I HAVE GOTTA BUY THAT CAR; AND
I DID! I LOVE THE BLUE LAGOON
EXTERIOR, IT IS DIFFERENT, AND THE CAR
TURNS HEADS. I MEAN EVERYONE JUST
LOOKS, BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING ELSE
ON THE ROAD LIKE. I DO NOT DRIVE
FAST, BUT IN THIS CAR YOU CANNOT
HELP. WITH THE 1.8T ENGINE, IT JUST
ZOOMS PAST PEOPLE WHO ARE DROOLING
OVER THE CAR. (


Best Features

EVERYTHING! THE RECARO SEATS, THE 18 INCH BBS WHEELS, THE BODY KIT, LOWERED SUSPENSION, ETC. WHAT CAN'T YOU LIKE ABOUT THIS CAR? IT HAS IT ALL, AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE.


Worst Features

NONE. ALTHOUGH THE RECARO SEATS ARE NOT COMFORTABLE; BUT I GUESS THEY ARE RACING SEATS: "NOT DESIGNED FOR COMFORT".
