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


I bought my Jetta brand new and have not looked back since! It's been the best car I've ever owned. There's nothing quite like quality german engineering! I have had some small issues though, the seat heaters had a recall, brake light switch had a recall, check engine light came on in the first 12,000 miles due to a faulty sensor, but overall I am very please. Most recently I had to take the car in for a broken link on the sway bar which was covered under warranty. Despite these issues I still love my Jetta!

Best Features

My heated seats are the best! Nothing better than driving my Jetta in the middle of winter with my seat turned up to 5!! :)

Worst Features

Maintenance costs are quite a bit for this car if you go to an authorized VW dealer. I also haven't been very happy with the service departments at 3 different dealers across the United States. My experience is that Volkswagens needs to improve their service departments.
