My GF is thinking of getting a jetta within a year. So we went to the dealership to drive one. I was thinking she should get a 200hp VR6 or 1.8t, but after talkin to the sales person he said the vr6 will only be available in the GLX not both GLX and GLS anymore. Well the GLX sticker was like 27,600. So i said looks like its the 1.8t. So we took out a 02 180hp Jetta. It was an auto. I know I know.....she doesnt wanna drive stick what can i do. She knows how she just doesnt want to do it every day. So anyway back to the test drive. First impression was WOW torque....torque....torque. I have never driven the vr6 auto so i cannot compare. We didnt get the tach past about 3500, and there was no need to. After i was done driving she drove it. First thing she said to the sales guy was "Oops sorry i didnt know it would pull like that" granted she is driving a mitsubishi mirage with 90hp. But the car was very nice and had boat loads of torque way down low. She will probably get it when she is ready. She also said i like the turbo whistle...it sounds cool...hehe. So it will be a Tornado Red Jetta with Leather for about 24,500, and the GLX would be 27,600. Thats almost 3k difference. Anyway i just wanted to share. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to the 1.8t.
