Jetta — Its boring, too much techonolgy, doesnt go low enough, but its quick and looks nice. It also smells like crayon inside. It reliable and always starts. I should have bought a VR6, but hey what can i do? v w

Fun Everyday Car — Highly recommend to upgrade ECU and exhaust...mine Has Revo Stage 2 upgrades, fender mount cold air, 4 Bar fuel pressure regulator, Stratesphere Diverter valve, Eurospeed 2' downpipe and Magna Flow exhaust. It puts HP up to around 245 at 16-18lbs of boost...a lot of power for a 4cylinder. Prior to upgrades I had a lot of ECU problems, now just the typical coil pack blowing now and then. Plus I get 28-30mpg

Cons

its exspensive to maintain

I Absolutley Love It — the VR6 is a beastly 6 cyl motor and i love it. it has the most beautiful undertone and a snotty mean heart throne. my car is awsome. its pretty stock except for a neuspeed perf. chip, remus axle back exhaust, ported swiss intake box, and a badgeless grill.

Vw Jetta 2001 — The best car ever!! Will never buy a North American car as long as I can afford it...Gas can be a bit pricey when I put the pedal to the metal but it is worth it because she goes!!

Pros

German Engineered, Quality of materials and design, 1.8T, Modifications, Culture

Cons

Mechanical failure, so-so mileage, expensive repairs

55

German Enigneered. — My favorite car, VW should have refined the mechanical build though. A great german-engineered car with lots of problems though. The innovation at the time was great, as VW introduced the 20v 1.8T. However I experienced many mechanical problems, mostly with the automatic 01m transmission (notorious for railure), and electrical. Had to replace tranny twice within a year. I loved the community surrounding the mods of vw's though, and the mk4 had endless tuning options. Car was overall a sleek simple looking one too. Interior is simple enough to be elegant. Handling was okay, pretty normal for an econobox.

Jetta — Not to bad performance but steeply declined. Needed repairs from about the day i got it used. Not very good gas mileage and needed alot of maintence. It is a pretty fun car to drive because it has good handling.
