Jetta is Great! 70K miles and counting!
By Frank on


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


The Jetta seems to be a love/hate car. It looks to me like a lot of people that had the 1.8T models had serious issues. Couldn't be happier with the 2.0 L GLS model. Only complaint is the water pump issue that VW has yet to recall. Common issue: the water pump fins melt off and cause head gasket failure. If you look around, this happens to everyone. Other than that, very few issues in 5 years. Great car for the money and fun to drive!

Best Features

heated leather, stereo, looks, handling, fun to drive, MPG

Worst Features

address and pay for the water pump failures VW! (replacement part has been corrected) The MAF and O2 sensors also should be covered and seem to be a common issue.
