Go get one!

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


Bought the car w / 85000 miles on it, and have loved it ever since. Only problem has been an ignition coil that went out. (coil #2) Pays off to do your own work on these, and buy the Bentley manual. If you have a laptop computer and the VAGCOM software, you're set! These cars can get you in trouble if you treat them like a car from Japan, so be careful. If you want a car to get you from point A to point B without any joy, get a Toyota or Honda. You want to have some fun and be in a very safe car, get one of these. Follow the Maint. schedule, and change that oil every 3-4K with full synthetic, you'll love this car.........just as I do.

Best Features

Exterior design, ease of controls, and the 17" rims are sweet! Manny transmission and turbo are a blast! Coming up on 116,000 miles and runs like new. Take care of it......it'll take care of you.

Worst Features

Make the center arm rest a bit more solid......which I am sure they have addressed. Other than that........none.
