2004 Volkswagen Jetta ReviewThis car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
Both the Volkswagen Jetta sedan and wagon offer something for everyone. This versatility could explain its continued success in the North American market. The Jetta starts life as a sensible mode of transportation, but with the right engine and transmission selected, the Jetta can transform into a real performer. The Jetta is powered by one of four different engines, a modest 115-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a lively 180-hp 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder, a sporty 2.8-liter VR6 engine producing 200-hp, and finally for those looking for maximum fuel economy a 100-hp 1.9L TDI diesel engine. Depending on the engine, buyers can also choose between four different transmission types; five-speed or six-speed manual, and either a four-speed or five speed automatic. AM/FM CD player with 8 speakers, air-conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, keyless entry, power windows and door locks, are all standard conveniences on the Jetta. When it comes to safety, all Jetta's are equipped with six airbags, anti-lock brakes, front safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, anti-intrusion side door beams, and a steering wheel which is deformable/collapsible upon impact. Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP) with brake assist is standard on the GLI trim and optional on all other models. For 2004, the Jetta sedan receives an updated exterior appearance that features chrome applications to the front and rear bumpers, and re-designed taillights. The wagon benefits from a new chrome front grille. On the inside both the sedan and wagon now have aluminum plated instrument ring clusters, seatbelt reminder and fuel cap seal warning, a new engine cover design, and the new TDI-PD engine with a 10-hp improvement over the previous TDI engine.
