There are 3 user reviews for the GLI 1.8T trim shown below

- front end is low, feels cheap
Purchased As Used
Hot little car once you hit 2500 rpm. Equal to a BMW 3 series, but without the quality. Lots of fun to drive.
But without the turbo, this car doesn't do much. You really have to get it above 2500 rpms.
Very versatile. With the seats down in the back, I have transported all kinds of musical equipment and even wood from the Home Depot.
The quality of the overall car is OK, but the plastics feel a bit cheap. Shifting into gear 1 and 2 is not smooth at all, other gears are fine.
I get a lot of compliments from younger guys. I guess it's a cool car to them (I inherited it)....read morehide

- Awesome performance all around - breaking, handling, acceleration, etc.
- Not a whole lot of room in back seat.
Most fun car I have ever drove. Performs like a BMW. I test-drove a lot of cars in this price range. As far as I'm concerned, its only competition is the Mini Cooper S, but for the price you can't beat it. MINI is still over-pricing their cars "because they can". One of the best things about this car is that there are a ton of aftermarket parts for it. I have just installed a Neuspeed P-Chip that bumped my HP from 180hp to 225hp and only for $350. The six-speed transmission is smooth and fun. The car comes with an amazing list of accessories including Recaro Racing Seats, BBS 18" wheels, lowered racing suspension, 8-speaker Monsoon stereo system, under body spoiler, 6-speed transmission, etc... You cannot go wrong with a new Volkswagen, even JD Power gives the Jetta a 5-Star rating on mechanical quality and safety. Anyone who says differently is obviously lying and jealous that they don't have one. My wife and I have owned 6 different cars in the last 4 years; the Jetta GLI is by far our favorite....read morehide

- Ran good when check engine light was not on.
- In the shop eight times.
Bought new, in the shop eight times and left me stranded twice. Always had a problem, worst car I ever owned. Traded in after two years.
