Black 2001 Vw Jetta 1.8t — My Jetta has a 3" turboback exhaust that is a beast at wide open trottle. I just love the way its sounds when i stomp on it. I have some upgraded cross drilled rotors, but they are nothing special. Split Second boost controller turns up the boost when I need the extra power. There are patec coilovers installed that lower the car quite a bit, I can only fit one finger between the wheel and the fender both front and back. Spacers push the back wheels out to give it a more aggressive look. Rear sway bar keeps the car on the ground while taking hard corners. Stg 1 clutch transfer most of the power to the wheels. HID's keep the road lite up nicely while drving at night. It's a fun car to drive but expensive to maintain, as with many german engineered cars.

2001 Vw Jetta Glx Vr6 — Handles well; accelerates well (with added chip & cold air intake unit); brakes well especially around corners. Def go with the vr6, that engine is by far VWs best. Build quality is superior to most american built cars..but still could be better. The interior is sweet and the Bose system is pretty nice as well. I love the black on black leather look too. Overall its a fun car to drive. I'd suggest upgrading the tail lights and headlights, its a much better look. And the cold air intake unit adds that extra umph when you floor it. Also, debadging makes the ass end look so much better.

Terrible Car — I love the look, but the quality sucks. If you are looking for something reliable this is not the car. I've had nothing but problems with my car and have brought it into the shop a million times. Way too many problems with the engine, with it over heating, electrical problems, way too many repairs and problems with the coolant, etc .. The peformance is great, it has great pick up and a nice smooth ride and that is about it.

Performance, comfort, and safety

My Beautiful Speed Racer! — I love many things about my Jetta. I am a bit weird though, so my likes are probably way different than anyone elses. For one i love the way all Jetta's smell like crayon's-kinda weird but it reminds me of childhood. I also love the interior accent lights. Everything turns red when darkness falls. Another great thing about my Jetta is how safe I feel when driving. My son's carseat fits perfectly in the middle so I can keep an eye on him, and my seat is pretty snug as well. It handles curves like a champ and when I put the peddle to the metal, I'm gone like the wind!

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.

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.
