Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: good gas mileage, safety minded, ample room, large trunk
Cons: small for tall drivers and/or passengers (over 6ft)
The Bottom Line: The Jetta is an safe, comfortable and easy car to own. Add in the excellent gas mileage and you've got a winning combination!

Lots of cars taut safety features galore and brag over their side impact, blunt force, etc, etc, however, I can tell you from first person authority that the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta is an honest to goodness lifesaver. Impact shatter windows, outstanding ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Quick, great uphill, compact, sporty, great handling
Cons: Too small for a standard-size carseat
The Bottom Line: Get this car if you're looking for something quick and compact. Good for city driving and quick stops.

The Jetta was the first car I ever owned and I think it is great for beginning drivers and first time car owners. It is a zippy compact car with great handling. I can do turns limited to 30 MPH at 50 MPH with ease. The full package comes with optional ... read more

Jan 28, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Very peppy, good gas mileage, pleasant on the eyes, good trunk space
Cons: Minimal back seat room
The Bottom Line: I would recommend this vehicle to anyone with a family as there is just not enough room for a family.

I really enjoy this car. It has an extremely peppy 1.8 litre turbo engine. The "get up and go" is really nice whether you are driving in city traffic or just having some fun. I haven't had a single problem with it since the day it was bought new. I ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: The car has nice mileage, great engine.
Cons: Bad buy. In the 1.8T 2004 Jettas, VW has istalled defficient parts.
The Bottom Line: final recommendation: don't by a VW, under any circumstances. They install crap OEM parts, knowing you will be back much earlier than needed for repairs.

I have a 2004 Jetta 1.8T. Overall, the car has performed nicely; lots of fun to drive, great mileage, great engine, and super handling. However, at 50k miles I experienced clutch issues, whereby I could not shift into R or 1st, unless the engine was off. ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: engine performance,interior styling(I got the leather)
Cons: service department,Clutch vibration,moisture problem.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend the vehicle to people in general because I do like it, but I am hesitant because others may receive the same crummy service I have.

This car is a curse and a blessing. The bad first..I have had a moisture problem with the car fogging up constantly, spring,summer,winter and fall, since I bought it. The "mechanics" (and I use the term loosely)keep telling me to drive with the air ... read more
