2000 Jetta Owner Reviews (2)
VR6 a Joy to Drive and a Pain to Maintain
My car is a 2000 GLS VR6. I have owned this car for 6 years from 2009-2015. The car is fun to drive with its fair amounts of power and torque and surprisingly good handling. The clutch feel and travel is good while the shifter is easy to use but notchy. I am not sure if this is wear related or a difference between the smoother 4 cylinder transmission I have experienced in a 2001 Golf. The car is difficult to work on myself. The front is to low to use ramps, and the front face of the car needs to be removed for many things that seem should be simple. When the car reached 15 years old many of the plastics and interior electronics have started to fail as though they reached the end of their design life.
