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.

Great Car At Good Price, Been Very Solid For Me. — Solid car, mostly reliable - for example, still original clutch at 180k. Occasional annoying mechanical issues and recalls. Peppy, but annoyed that the engine was limited to 150hp. Fun car to drive! It's been pretty cheap to own, just a few major repairs. The replacement parts (and service at the Stealership) can be pretty expensive though. I've made several updates and upgrades; a Cold Air Intake, upgraded Diverter Valve, short shift, etc... It's a cool car, but it's about to be replaced, I think...

Jetta Gls — Sweet sound system. plenty of options for cheap car ie: heated seats, sun roof, 6 disc CS player, leather...etc. i dont like how the back seat gets very little leg room but it is supposed to be a compact car. Overall tight handling fun car to drive around. done.

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

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.

20v Turbo — This is my first VW, gotta love the 1.8 20V Turbo, pretty fast little car and also sporty, I've hit 134MPH in it. You can still feel the turbo at those high speeds too. Gets about 30MPG, my only complaint is that the check engine light comes on quite often.

Funnest Car I Have Owned! — My car has been highly customizable so far and I had taken advantage of that. With the turbo upgrade coming soon it will compliment the addons already present. Without throwing it up on a dyno I would guess that I am producing 265hp at the crank and maybe more than that in torque. The car handles well and feels very solid.
