Another year means another slew of small but important changes for the Volkswagen Jetta. After being decontented when the latest generation was introduced, the Jetta is slowly gaining it back. However, this year, many small things are being removed while grouped options packages are being added. Also, the 1.8 TSI four-cylinder engine is now available on Trendline+ models while an automatic transmission is available with the base 2.0L gasoline engine on Trendline models. TDI models get a boost of 10 hp for a little extra get-up-and-go.

The Jetta comes with a choice of three engines: a 2.0L four-cylinder (115 hp, 125 lb-ft), 1.8L turbocharged four-cylinder (170 hp, 184 lb-ft), and a 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel (150 hp, 236 lb-ft). The gasoline engines use a five-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic with Tiptronic. The TDI uses a six-speed manual or optional six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) automatic. The 2.0L is the base engine in Trendline and Trendline+ trims. The 1.8 TSI and 2.0 TDI are available in Trendline+, Comfortline, and Highline trims. Comfortline and Highline trims get the 1.8 TSI as its base engine.

Features on the Trendline include 2.0L four-cylinder gas engine, 5-speed manual transmission, 15-inch steel wheels, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, hydraulic power-assisted steering, MacPherson strut front/multilink rear suspension, traction control, electronic differential lock, engine braking assist, electronic stability control, hill hold assist, dual exhaust, chrome grille, LED licence plate illumination, cruise control, black exterior mirror housings, variable intermittent windshield wipers, engine immobilizer, 12V outlet (x2), trip computer, gear indicator, power locks, dual vanity mirrors, 4-speaker audio, satellite radio, auxiliary input, airbags (front, front seat, side curtain), LATCH, 6-way manual front seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, rearview camera, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and power windows with pinch protection.

2001 Volkswagen Jetta

by MeloJello on 10-12-2012
Nothing fancy but it did the job!
Super comfortable wish plush bucket seats. The ride was nice and smooth. Very good on Fuel, you definitely get what you expect. The interior is dated and I think they always have been. Only gripe about the Jetta, The dash lights went (fairly common), and apparently you have to take the steering column apart to replace the lights. Big Job. I never did replace the lights.

Diesel power
This car is very comfortable on long trips and a pleasure to drive. The diesel power is amazing and the car is quite. My car is Moonrock Silver and I love that color.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta

Trim: leather
by smantle on 10-11-2012
Solid, sporty, affordable luxury
I bought this car four years ago, and aside from being extremely fortunate to have bought a Certified pre-owned (read: two warranty that I used more than once), this car has been like any other car I've owned, in terms of repairs. I've read that some of them are lemons, and really, that's true of ANY make. The Jetta is a sharp looking car that I never get tired of admiring. It's fun to drive, the seats are super-comfy, and I love the leather interior. I'm short, so the car feels roomy enough for my liking, but I've heard that even tall people find the headroom in the Jetta surprising. The seats are on the firm side, which I actually like, particularly on longer drives.
