2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6 from North America
More fun for the money
No mechanical or electrical problems whatsoever.
Rattling sounds from rear doors when going over bumps.
Occasional vibrations from rear speakers at loud volumes.
I have owned Volkswagens since 1986, and love the marque. I traded an 8 year old Jetta in on an Audi A6 lease car that was nowhere near as reliable or as fun to drive as the Jetta. Before I even turned in the Audi, I went out and bought another Jetta. I have read many negative reviews of this car, but having owned three, I can say I have never had any more serious problem than replacing a muffler after about 5 years in one car. I've also owned a VW Fox and a VW Golf, but the Jettas far outperform these other models. I would recommend a Jetta. Just be careful of your dealer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
