Good Car And Lasts For Ever — Performance - acceleration not so graeat Performance - braking pretty good Performance -real good ive made some tweaks so the back right wheeldoesnt come off the ground in hard left turns like most of them did along with a lot of other cars Build Quality -its needed some repairs mostly from me racing and stuff but its a 1.8 L with a turbo and ive needed to replace the turbo and the clutch went last year so it gave me a ood excuse to get a lighter race clutch no squeeks or rattles that ive found yet Appearance - pretty good if your someone that like that curved styling but me personmally i like the older ones like 85-00 my self but this ones growing one me the interior is pretty good its a mid level car so it pretty roomy and comfy Cost of Ownership - petty low ok on gas and not much heavy maintence i mean like oil changes and wheel allignment but really thats it Fun Factor - this car is really fun to drive i race it a lot and i really like it

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

Pros

CUTE and FUN car to drive. Not bad on gas mileage but lots of engine issues

Cons

Maintenance costs are $$$

35

Really Fun Car To Drive...not So Fun On The Wallet — Bought JT second hand from the original owner in Chicago. Love driving JT but drawbacks include mass airflow issues, lots of maintenance and engine light is always on even right after I resolve the error codes. :( Two words: Extended Warranty!! :)

2001 Volkswagon Jetta Gls — I can't say anything bad, after all my cars 7 years old and it looks new, and still runs great. It drives just as I though, which was pretty damn good. I really wish I had gotten Manuel though but for living in a small town I think I would have hated it. I got my car for 7K and that's pretty good. My Jetta is Silver with black interior. It has black leather which is really cool, and all the extra options Jetta's came with that year. But one thing it didn't come with was a CD player. It had a Compact player "which had to go". So now my car has a pioneer radio in it. The engine is a 2.0L and runs great. I Although the newer VW's look ok, I like the older 2000-2004 models better, like mine. The only thing I could not figure out is while cleaning the car for the first time, I had found the word Jazz in the manuel and one the back of my trunk. I later replaced Jazz with 2.0 on the trunk lid. I called up the last owner and got in to a conversation about the car and some things I might want know. After talking he told me that he called his car Jazz (Named after his favorite TV shows character) Fresh Prince of Bellair's Jazz. So that was the story, and I kept the name. Overall my car is the best car I owned, although I'm not gonna go into my 1976 Corvette Stingray, that's another story.

Pros

Fully Economic, Comfortable interior, awesome exterior

Cons

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

45

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.

Great Car — I love my car but it's green I wish it was blue or black. Very reliable family car, worried it may need a new clutch but hoping not yet, has a few rust spots but has under 100,000 miles which is awesome for a 2000.

A Great Fuel Saver — I took it from Bristol Va. area to Nashville Tn. on one tank of fuel and had some left when I got there. So if your looking for something to use Commuting to work every day then any of these Volkswagen Jetta TDI are one way to save money!

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
