It's German, Need I Say More. — Beautiful style, great design, well built and solid, loaded as standard. Performance is quite spritely considering only 2lts and auto. Cost of ownership is minimal, usual maintenance, although with higher quality(higher price) parts. Mileage good. Still retains it's style after 12 years.

My Speed-machine — Love love my Jetta... Had a few minor problems with the electric system, had to replace some spark plugs and needed to change my struts bt other than that everything is great.It almost makes traffic fun. Very fast and the brakes has nice handling. I fun that my V6 and turbo only use alot of gas but when im like racing or something. overall great!

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

Sweet German Lunchbox — I love this car it is the most reliable car Ive had much better than the Nissans i had with their outrageous priced parts.I feel it looks much better than the new mkv jetta an it has to be one of the easiest cars to modify.

Pros

Rarely have problems with performance, good size for city, decent mileage.

Cons

Electrical problems particularly with lights inside and out, cheap glove compartment handles, cigarette lighter plugi-in area too tight, wheel locks are unnecessery, turbo is okay.

Runs Great But Electrical Problems Are A Nuisance. — Runs great, but electrical problems such as light fixtures are a severe problem and I see that I'm not the only one. I see these cars on the road with at least one external light out all the time. Other than that and besides the turbo having a second and half delay (as all do - only Porsche has perfected turbo charged systems), it's a nice city car.

Excellent Car! — After being a Ford fan for years (and still am at heart), I was persuaded into a VW and it's been the best decision car wise I have made. After 227,000km it still runs as if it were new. It is fast enough, the buld quality is excellent for a small car and very good on gas. I've put just over $1000 in maintenance in 4 years of ownership. I definitely recommend the MK4 Jetta to anyone!

Pros

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
