2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8 turbo from North America
A dream car at a price I can afford
One ignition coil went out at 3000 miles. The car was towed to the dealer the next day, and I picked it up the day after. The customer service was excellent.
Also, I have been having boost problems, after a long hard run the car only allows the turbo to run 3-4 pounds of boost. The problem is fixed as soon as the car is shut off.
The car has been great. Very good throttle response, excellent brakes that never fade after being hit hard. The sport suspension with new springs handles very nice.
The body styling is beautiful. All of the bumpers and moldings fit very tight and clean.
The interior was designed almost perfect. all the gages are easily visible, climate controls are right within reach and the cup holders are, too.
The Tiptronic transmission should not be underestimated. Its performance is just as good as a manual, if not better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
