    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS 2.8L (EOP Week 40) (M5) Sedan

    Pros: the V6 engine

    Cons: the gas milage

    Advice: Beware of the gas milage claims

    This is a truely comfortable car to drive. I've owned the 4 cylinder also and the V6 is much smoother and quieter and plenty powerful. The fit and finish are excellent, although I have had some problems that are a little concerning to me such as the passenger window falling into the door, and the springs under both seats falling out. Minor, but irritating. The biggest surprise has been that the car does no better than 278 miles on a tank of gas, far short of what was claimed. I drive 148 miles each way to work, and have not gotten 300 miles from a tank yet.
