Sucked — oil problems, in the shop every 2 weeks for a 500 dollar repair, seats could not be kept looking good, lint collected so easily, it basically sucked. But I loved the way it looked on the outside, ughhhh wish i still had it. By the way, 2002's were duds, every other year should be fine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Outside appearance only

Cons: oil, engine

Almost Perfect 1st Car For Son Or Daughter, Good Safety Ratings — Performance: Great Acceleration with the 1.8 liter turbo engine, braking is average and handiling is average. Build Quality: Requires ALOT of repairs Appearance: Average appearance, not too sporty, just right amount of look to it. Cost of Ownership: Gas is very expensive for my model since its a turbo engine it takes Premium gas. Fun Factor: With the added speed, yes it is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, its compact, has average gas mileage

Cons: Parts are very hard to come by for it, and if you do if you do find them, they are VERY expensive.

Overall A Good Car With Some Hiccups Along The Way. — My Jetta is an attractive, fun car loaded with features...moonroof, Monsoon stereo, heated seats, hatchback. I really like driving it. However, these Jettas are known for having many problems under the hood [due to Volkswagen trying to save some pennies], mostly in the wiring and engine areas. The coil packs are the most known problem. But once you get these things fixed, it's pretty much good to go.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a fun car to drive, and it gives you lots of high end options on a mid-range car.

Cons: Many known problems under the hood, especially with the coil packs.
