"We have owned this TDI since new and are getting a reliable 48 mpg. It is easy and cheap to maintain and fun to drive. It only has 90 hp but lots of torque. It has been very reliable (so far only glow plug harness outside of regular maintenance)."

Very fun and extremely reliable

2003 Jetta. Picture taken in 2012- this car is like new

"I cannot believe how great this car has been for the past 13 years. I have only replaced 1 set of brake pads on it; otherwise just normal maintenance. Make sure to use synthetic oil every 5k miles and do the timing belt at 75k miles and you will be fine. This car is fast fun and reliable."

"I bought a 2002 Jetta 1.8T with 109,000 miles. Transmission had to be rebuilt at 109,500 and now has to be rebuilt again at 116,000 as well as the timing belt and cooling system. Needless to say, do not buy a 1.8T"

"I first wanted to purchase a Passat but my son, whose is a VW technition, talked me into the Jetta and I'm soooo glad he did! It's fun to drive, very sporty, and has GUTS!! It's eleven years old now and I dread the thought of having to get a new car. No rust what so ever and still runs like a dream!! I think I'll keep her forever!!"
