2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX-VR6 2.8 V6 from North America
This is a very solid, well built car, and I would highly recommend it to anyone
I had some recalled parts replaced at the dealership's cost.
I had the self-adapting transmission serviced. When it shifted into third gear it would chsnge into "Sport Mode" and my fuel economy would drop.
I have had to replace a handfull of small trim items, buttons, switches, etc...
This is the second Jetta I have owned. The one I owned prior to this one was totalled in a head-on collision. The safety and airbag systems worked well and I was able to walk away from a head-on crash at 40 MPH.
The transmission is very responsive. It can get up and go really fast when you need it to.
The interior of the car has a pretty luxurious feeling, with the leather seats and wood trim interior.
The safety systems work very well. I unfortunately know from experience. I do feel very safe driving in this car.
The fuel economy is pretty good. According to the trip computer on board the average fuel consumption is about 23MPG.
Volkswagen Service is very good. Although they no longer "loaner" vehicles and you have to pay for a rental out of pocket. Most of their warranty programs will re-imburse you though.
The warranty is the best of any used car I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
