Jetta Gli Lovers — I will own this car for ever. Geat acceleration stops on a dime, sweet handling. I have not spent a penny on repairs with 37000 miles on her. The 1.8t GLI package only came out in 2004 and 2005 and it's the best looking Jetta ever built.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Performance and styling

Cons: That I want to drive it all the time instead of my truck

I Love My Gli — Its amazing.Its pretty quick off the line and always turns heads. Got a few aftermarket parts on it. the only thing that sucks about it is that the parts for it such as tires,sensors, etc, are expensive as hell. It could have a bigger turbo, but other than that its amazing.....

Pros: Power,Looks,Customizations, basically everything

Cons: Slight turbo lag, small turbo.

05 Jetta Gli, Lagoon Blue — fun to drive, kind of a sleeper, sounds well tuned and then bag out of no where a over the top Blow off. haha A big fan of the carbon fiber hood that has been painted to meet up with the grill lines to make the car flow a lot better.

Pros: 6 Spd, big brakes

Cons: only fwd

I Loved Everything About It Till Some Jackass Crashed Into The Back Of It.... — From The Wheels To The Transmission This Car Is Great, The Only Thing VAG Could Have Done Is Built The Interior Better. I Loved The Car And Will Regardless Of If It Was Distroyed. It Handled Geat With The Koni Coilovers I Put In Over The Stock Suspension & The APR Chip Helps ALot.

Pros: Recaro Seats, 6 Speed

Cons: Needs To Come In AWD Or RWD

My Blue Devil — 18 inch rims! Turbo charged engine, and bright blue color rock! Recaro racing seats are a little hard to get out of...

This Is A Solid Car!! — I love this car!! It is the best car I have ever owned. The bucket seats inside are so sassy. This is what my car looks like except I have a spoiler, moon roof and my tint is darker. I don't have one on this computer so I choose one online. Same color and everything though. This is the last year where the body stayed this way and now the Jetta looks like crap. So I am so happy that I have VW's best!!

Pros: Everything, the power and pick up is nice!!

Cons: Nothing now. There was a time when the brakes while reversing made a horrible sound, but changing the pads out to ceramic fixed that problem real quick!

Amazing Thrills And Sleek Sexy Style — I recently bought this car in a 5 speed semi-auto. The car came with a GIAC racing ECU and a diverter valve. After I put a short RAM on the beast, the car was nearly untouchable. Not only is this car FAST, cops do not expect it to be fast either. The Recaro seats are fantastic. The BBS wheels are so sexy, but can be a pain to clean. I wash my car everyday and treat it as if it were one of my children.

Owner for 0 years, 3 months

Pros: Sport suspension, 18"BBS rims- lightest BBS ever made, ESP control, ABS, Body Kit, Recaro Seats, Fast Turbo, All black interior, amazing gas milage at high speeds

Cons: BBS rims hard to clean, hondas try racing you at stop lights

For the features you get in terms of tech alone this generation GLI is a great buy. But then you add in the engine/transmission (and a 6MT!!!) and it’s a no brainer. Read More
