My Jetta — Most dislikes of it is the cost of everything for it, The performance is what i love the most on it and it runs like a champ, love the way it drives, no one believes it has what it has.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The premium features of much larger cars, VR6, pretty good at almost anything.

Cons

could use a bit more low end grunt, should hve 200hp, could be a tiny bit larger, 4motion should have been an option,

Pretty Good At Anything... — The Jetta GLX is a car that is missing in todays VW line up. GLX= LOADED. Rain sensing wipers, auto up and down windows, auto sun roof, great Monsoon 8 speaker sound system that rivals any bose available in a car from 2000.

great power, somewhat ok gas mileage, comfortable ride

Cons

unreliable

55

2000 Vw Jetta Gls 1.8t — i love the car to death, but it keeps freaking breaking down. i wouldn't reccomend this car to ANYONE that isn't a mechanic...you WILL be working on it a lot. My favorite feature is that this car will outrun a 2004 and older mustang GT and get 25 mpg doing it...but it is not a gas saver under any circumstances. it's a cheap thrill. but i've been through a lot with mine...im kinda attatched to it

Great power, smooth ride

Cons

Plagued with problems.

Vr6, Powerful Engine. — Great power but plagued with problems from the start. Had many issues with ABS, ASR, steering rack, transaxle and windows. Love the car but the maintenance problems gave me second thoughts about buying another. My GTI on the other hand had no issues over four years that I've owned it.

3 — 4 the best time ever,find some roads like coming down Mt. Washington, and add some straights like New England Dragway! Who needs a turbo when you have the VR6 engine, 0 to sixty in 4.8 seconds, stops on a dime and leaves you change!

Personally Love The Car No Matter What. — put it this way no matter what i dislike about the car it makes up for it in five other ways the car tells its oun story to each ouner i just think my jetta has been the best experience to me so far with a project car. DONT knock till you try.

Pros

Incredibly easy to park in small spaces and parallel park!
The car is super cute!

Cons

It is a small car so it isn't exactly meant for group road tripping. If ever you had to ride in the back seat for any distance it gets uncomfortable pretty quick because there isn't much leg room.

Super Cute, Clean Car That Serves Well As A High School Or Collage Vehicle. — This car carried me through some of the worst sleet, rain and snow storms you can imagine. It handles very well in any kind of weather. Truly the BEST vehicle for a high school or collage student who drives long distances. It is good on gas (though as it has aged , it has lost a few miles , but it is still good on gas) What I liked least about this car: It sits very low , which wasn't a problem until I had a baby. I still love this car, but it is NOT a family vehicle. However, it was a fantastic car to have as a single collage student !
