Pros

Fully Economic, Comfortable interior, awesome exterior

Cons

Seems to have some spots of rust, acceleration sometimes not always enough

Awesome Car! — I have a fully equipped 1.9TDI and I love the acceleration, even if this is not the best. It's easy to make 950kms with about 50liters of diesel even if you drive at 140km/h... (said too much I think :D). The interior is awesome, I like the lighting at night and the heating seats. Leather is good quality and I like very much the 2-way sunroof.

Dont Buy Volkswagenn — Worst car I eve own. It cost me over 4000$ reparation in 4 years. Every parts broke up. They start to brake only 12 days of owning. The only positive thing of this car is that you can full the car every 2 weeks and it was a very confortable car and fun to drive. After this car I got a Toyota Echo. It was not confortable, but was never at the garage for reparation. I wll never buy back a Volkswagen for sure. I really enjoy the looking of those car, but it's not suitable.

I Love This Car! — The cup holders and the keys are expensive to fix. I have had this car for a few months now and I'm very impressed with the overall quality of the car. The Jetta is a small, quick, little car that is safe and reliable.

Beautiful Car, Terrible Reliability - Sadly, Buyer Beware!!! — Absolutely amazing car to drive - tons of fun, great looking, high-quality interior, great handling, and very fast with the VR6 engine and 5-speed. Based on driving experince alone, it's a 5-star car. Durability with this car however, was a nightmare. My Jetta was completely incapable of going 1,000 miles without the "check engine" light coming on and requiring a random repair. The cost of parts and labor are ridiculous, and were the determining factors in selling it after only 1 year of ownership. (The VR6 barely fits in engine bay, causing labor for something simple like an altinator replacement to cost far too much). I hate to say it, but this vehicle has probably turned me off from buying another VW for quite some time.

Jetta — i bought this car for the gas mileage and man does it have so many other good qualities. it gets roughly about 32 mpg highway. It's such a fun car to drive as well, great handeling, great braking, and somewhat quick, and there are a lot of upgrades that are available

Pros

Very solid build, good gas mileage, exceptional acceleration

Cons

A few recalls in the first year, but they were addressed for free, and the car has been very reliable.

2001 Vw Jetta Gls 1.8t — The mark IV Jetta has received less than stellar reviews for reliability, particularly regarding its electrical system. However, I've been nothing but thrilled with my turbo GLS model since the first day I drove it off the lot. It's not too big or too small, the trunk is huge, the gas mileage only improves as I near 90K miles, and the acceleration is great! The car is also very solid and quiet. It's a ton of fun to drive. I typically get tired of cars within two or three years of ownership, but I still love my VW after more than eight years! I don't plan to ever get rid of it!

Fun Comfy Ride — I really liked the way this car handles. Not to mention the care looks really cool. Plus, it is much roomier than you would expect. I'm 5' 11 and can sit in rear seat comfortably. It is the perfect first car for some lucky son or daughter.

Best Car I've Ever Owned — I’ve owned my Jetta going on 13 years (got it in October 2000) and have racked up over 100K miles. It has been so much fun to drive. I live and work in the Washington DC area and avoid driving to work like the plague. However, my job moved to an area were mass transit was not readily available. My Jetta made the daily commute almost a joy. When my job moved back to its previous location, I was almost sorry I didn’t have to drive to work. My car has done everything I’ve asked of it without hesitation. Takes off like a shot when I have to do a quick merge onto the highway or ambles happily along when I’m cruising back roads. Handles like a dream except when parallel parking. I get a real workout trying to park in a tight spot. The only real downside to this car is maintenance. The check engine light keeps coming on at disturbing regularity. As a foreign car, I expected it would be more expensive for up keep. But having to shell out several thousand dollars on what has become a yearly basis is a bit much. Overall, though, I will keep this car as long as I possibly can, I love it that much.

Metalic Blue 2001 Jetta Gls — i love how easy it is to work on. i've got a magnaflow 3 inch straight pipe (no catalytic converter) and AEM cold air intake. the stock wheels were ugly as hell so i put scorpion pioson series 18x7 1/2 wheels and blue streak stiletto 18x225 rubber. this car is an amazing performer for the money and i have had no electrical or mechanical problems. id guess mileage at about 33 highway and it topped 145 at 3/4 throttle. i cant imagin life without this car.
