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

Cons

Manuel seat adjuster, windows,and it's an automatic

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!

little rear leg room

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.

Everything is great

Cons

It has  about 80000 miles but I'm not afraid of high miles, after all it's reliability rating is very good till 200k Miles.

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.

Upgradable and smart design

Cons

a couple electrical quirks

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.

Awesome Car. — I upgraded from a regular to a diesel for my 2nd car. This car runs well. As my friend put it, "Oooh, diesel power". She has a few nicks and is missing a mirror, but my dad and I are working on her.
