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


do not like the lack of power to
accelerate,honda civics,dodge neons and
other cars constantly out accerate me
and are always on my rear.1st gear is
too low. center console rubs my right
leg. had many problems with a/c making
noise, after three times in the dealer
still not fixed. bought used with only
8,000 miles on it. uses oil, must add
1qt per month, plus if battery dies,
you must tow it to vw to fix. you
cannot change it yourself. computer
will lose memory, and must be
reprogrammed by dearler. a $40 charge.
not to mention the tow, and battery, oh
yeah, and the labor.

Best Features

gas mileage 32mpg even running the a/c. seats are comfortable on your back. smooth driving for a small car. cool looking blue dash lightiing.

Worst Features

move the damn cup holder so it doesnt block the radio. give the transmission and engine a re- design, so other cars with smaller engines do not out accelerate or run this thing. make the center console narrower. why does the computer lose its memeory if the battery dies?
