Definitely a VW Fan


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


After almost 3 years of owning this car, i can honestly say it's had a few issues, including water pump replacement, standard transmission syncros replaced, clutch replaced as well due to leaking transmission after synchro repair (dunno if that counts due to dealership not wear and tear), exhaust hangers quit after 1 year and a few bulbs and small issues like rim caps etc. Nothing major except for what was listed and that was all warranty work. Drives great, never fails to fire up and go.. great little cars overall. Love the stereo, sunroof and other features it came with. 1.8 T motor is great. just enough push to play, not enough fuel sucking to make it a gas pig. Overall, very balanced.

Best Features

Stereo, Moonroof, interior in general.. 1.8 T motor is fun and economical and who can do more than 120 in a 65?

Worst Features

Tighten up the interior a bit. and maybe even the suspension a small notch and I'd say they had it down..
