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


Have owned several VW's. Upgraded from a 2003 Golf GL to the Jetta GLS 2.0 4A Wagon. First impressions are great. Tight German factory-built auto with much tighter feel than the Brazillian-built Golf. It is quieter and more comfortable (some due to the GLS vs. GL interior) than a Golf. Road manners are great and the gas mileage is very good for a 4cyl. automatic. Recommend this to anyone as a totally practical automobile. The features and quality justify the price, which can be negotiated to very acceptable levels. The GLS TDI Tiptronic version would be the ultimate in a small wagon.

Best Features

Two stage remote unlocking, all windows & sunroof open with key feature, storage space, Monsoon stereo, CD and cassette in one radio. Availability of Phatbox for mp3 playback.

Worst Features

The way the rear seats fold down - make it so they go flat and don't require headrest removal. Shorten the middle headrest for better visability. Outside temperature sensor should be standard. Put a 5speed tiptronic with the 2.0 gas 4cyl.
