Jetta GLI
By Robert on


2005 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 1.8T 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I purchased my car used with 31,000 miles. Kudos to VW for adding the 6-seepd tranny, larger brakes, stiffer springs, body kit and Recaro seats! This Jetta is definitely worthy of the GLI badge. The suspension is on the firm side, but it's great fun to drive. It is very comfortable on my commutes. As a previous reviewer also mentioned, the front lip hangs fairly low, so you need to exercise caution when parking or when going up ramps. I love the car so far.

Best Features

The factory 18" BBS wheels, body kit, Recaro seats, 6-seepd tranny, clean styling of both the exterior and interior, and good trunk space.

Worst Features

It needs more rear leg room, especially if your front passengers are 5'8" or taller.
