i have a 2002 Jetta with the 1.8t and it's great. The only problem i have is I spin the tires out a lot but that's because i have no tred and need new tires. Plus the Jetta gets off the line faster because its lighter and has a turbo. I also think the Jetta would last longer. From what I've seen most Bonnevilles die around 150,000 miles.


What sort of situation are you finding yourself in where you are having to choose between an 03 Jetta Gls and a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville?
