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


Review

Car is all-around solid. Great interior
design with blue and red
instrumentation, comfortable seats,
simple layout. Performs well,
especially fond of acceleration. A
sedan, yes, but don't count on fitting
large people in the back seat unless
the driver and front passenger are each
5'3". Tiptronic is cool but slow.


Best Features

Monsoon sound system, sunroof, heated seats, performance of 1.8t engine.


Worst Features

I've read some reliability complaints, but I've had no problems myself after 600 miles. As long as car stays in good shape given the level of performance it provides, I'm happy!

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


Review

This vehicle is fun to drive and
handles the road well, great car for
the money. Would recomend this car for
a comute and for a young adult looking
for something that is reliable and good
looking, and not a gas gussler.


Best Features

interior lighting and it's silver space age trim.


Worst Features

Needs armrest on the passenger and driver's seat. could also put a rear vent for the passenger's in the back seat.

seen.

Review

It's a really nice ride. It's typical
European firm but comfortable. Engine
is strong. It runs so easy to 85 and 90
miles per hour you don't notice how
fast you're going. Nice handling.
Leather seats, firm, sporty, and very
comfortable. Tranny isn't silky
smooth...first gear spins the tires on
demand. Traction control is very nice
and so is the antilock brakes...Back
seat a little cramped but not important
for me. Really nice sounding stereo.
Getting 23+ in city and 28+ MPG on
highway going 75.


Best Features

Acceleration, safety, stereo, interior quality, great looking dashboard and look at night.


Worst Features

Make the car about 2 inches longer and put the extra room into legroom in the back seat.
