2001 Volkswagen Jetta LS Wagon 2.0 from North America
Well thought out, really nice car.
Nothing so far.
I have read so many comment on how bad the 2001 Jetta is I just had to write my own review. We have experienced none of the problems that I have read about in other reviews. This may be due to the fact that the 2001 2.0L wagon was built in Germany, while all other 2001 models were built in Mexico.
This car is cute and performs well. May people comment that it is underpowered, but I think it is quite spunky and amazingly smooth for a non-turbo 4 cylinder.
It is fun to drive. It corners like a champ, shifts smoothly, and stops with confidence.
It is amazingly roomy for its size. We routinely pack our family of four and the dog into it for road trips.
The sound system is awesome. I mean awesome! It has both a CD changer in the back and a single CD player in the dash (something I wish our Audi A6 had), and really sound great (my 19 year old niece is, like, totally jealous!).
We have not had any of the trim problems that I have read in other reviews. The body is mint, the interior doesn't have a mark on it. Nothing is cracked, chipped, peeling, or loose.
What else can I say? We love it! Is it so nice just because it was built in Germany? Who knowns?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

They are all put together with the same parts, regardless where they are assembled. You two just lucked into a couple units that were not problematic.

I find it hard to believe that we just "lucked into" good cars. Other owners are talking about windows falling into doors, trim falling off, armrests breaking, hinges failing, dashes cracking, etc. If all the cars are made from the same parts, these sort of things should happen to all the cars, correct? I'd be really interested in knowing if there are any Jetta Wagon owners that have experienced these problems. So far all the Jettas with problems seem to be sedans. Wagon owners? Care to comment?
