Fun, Affordable, Economic Transportation With A German Flair. — love my car, don't love the base 2.0 it comes with (i shoulda spent the other $800 on the 1.8t). other than that, has a lot more miles than average (333k), and has held up really well with nary a major problem. i still get 33mpg with it, and the handling is still crisp, even with snow tires and worn springs/shocks/struts. clutch is the only major component that needed to be replaced (and that 300k on it!). very easy to work on, a shadetree mechanic or budding tech can keep this car on the road very easily. cost of ownership has been great to me, i've owned her since new, and while i may have spent thousands on her, keep in mind, $1k+ is just in oil changes (34 oil changes with mobil1). i'd say over 333,000 miles i may have spent $4k total in maintenance, and another $600 for clutch parts and labor. i still get a smile on my face every day when i drive her, so i guess the fun factor is still there. :)

Been a great car!

Cons

Takes a long time to warm up in winter

25

Diesel Miser — 400,000 kms, 4.9 L per 100 k's. Chipped and nozzled, 130 hp at the wheels. My favorite highway ride of all time. And yup, its fun to drive. Cost of timing belts is a lot if you don't do the work yourself.

Practical and efficient. Best speedometer lights.

Cons

Can't think of any just don't buy one with 100000k miles

25

Can't Really Beat It For The Price. — I loved that car. It was perfect in the sense that it had good gas mileage, nice personality and room for the friends and lugage! However I got it when it had over 100,000 miles and there were MANY mechanical issues developing... too much to worry about at that point so I decided to get the Mini.

Cost of parts at VW

Jetta Tdi 2000 — Nice little mexican-made german car, i love it a lot exept for electronics and electric parts. It's a little expensive when you head to VW to get parts missing, those germans, such nice cars but why the hell assemblling'em in mexico... this is the question...

first gen for this bodystyle

Reliable And Easy To Mod Compared To Others That Is Competes With. — My PLATINUM MAMA. We've been through alot together. The best is still yet to come! It all started in 2001 when I discovered here in my uncle's junk yard. The previous owner flipped her a couple times across 64. The passenger's side was completely smashed in and the sunroof was almost non exsistent. After about a year of bodywork and getting all the major bugs out of the engine Platinum was reborn. In 2004 she was the focus of my senior project. Mods that were added were 18" rims undercar light system, cool air intake and tinted taillights. Not much but it got me an A for my senior project and to this day it s the standard of how much work should be put forth on a Senior project. After freshman year at ECU all my mods came off and she was completely stock again. Small additions have been added since then but we have only just begun.......again

the handling

Cons

it's the first year of MKIV jettas so it has problems

25

Its A Sporty, Cheap, Four Door — it's a fairly quick car that is fun to drive and also practical. With new rims and tires it handles much better than you would expect a four door saloon to handle. The only problems are with some of the materials being used on the interior coming apart

2000 Jetta To Gli-spec — Peppy little 2 litre motor, looks classic, build quality is quite good on outside, a bit of noise from old trim on inside. Great on gas, costs nothing to maintain, runs like a dream. Would definitely recommend this car to any student.

Pros

Fuel mileage (55 on our way to Denver!) and it's quick!

Cons

If you mistreat it and not do the maintenance, things will go wrong.

25

I Love It And Look Forward To Keeping It For A Long Time! — It's easy to shift, handles really well, and compared to other cars I've had, it's FAST! We haven't had any real problems yet, but if we do later, Cody knows a lot about them and can fix most everything. It's small and fits me perfectly, and just a smooth ride. I love it!

I'm Trading To A Diesel Beetle Ragtop So I'm Sad To See It Go! By Michael

So your car takes premium and gets 35 mpg? Diesel costs the same or less than premium and this car gets twice the mileage, meaning you use 50-60% of the fuel costs. I'm a long distance commuter, a... Read More
