2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T from North America
Best low cost compact sports sedan on the market!
All 4 interior Door panels not mounted correctly from factory causing clicking noise.
Intermittent Rattle from Sunroof.
Loose plastic trim underneath car (I probably hit something in the road).
The car has the Sports Suspension and 17" Wheels. Despite this the car rides Beautifully for a car this size.
Best looking car in its class.
The build quality has definitely improved from earlier Jettas. I had a 2000 Jetta.
I have had no coil problems, window problems, dashboard rattles etc. (most of these issues were addressed by 2003.
Dealer service is not great. It sometimes takes 2 attempts to fix a problem, but they always cover the repairs even when you are past the warranty in some circumstances.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
