Well, looks like I am the first one. I purchased my 2001 Jetta GLS 1.8T 7 days ago. Its Tonado Red......or as my cop friends call it "give me a ticket red." I live in Alaska. This is my second Jetta, I used to own a 94 Jetta GL 4 years ago. My husband grew up in a VW family, his parents always drove VWs. We bought my Jetta when we had to downsize from a minivan and the Jetta was the natural choice since its a car we both enjoy. My Jetta has 1250 miles on it right now.......we took it on a 700 mile trip 2 days after we bought it. So far its been a great car. Its getting a new set of winter tires this week since those darn Eagle LS that it came with are going to put the poor car in the ditch. Come on other Jetta owners.........post your stories!!

My name is John. I own a 2000 Jetta GL, tornado red. I just recently moved to the Midwest and needed a new car for my 60 mile commute to work in Indianapolis. I bought the car in October. I'm up to over 12000 miles. I bought the car from Dreyer and Reinbold in Greenwood, IN. I have been very pleased so far with the service. I have a check engine light come on when I first purchased the car. I was given a loaner GLS for the day and when I returned, all was fixed and the car was washed. I also had the in-dash CD player installed. Being a musician by profession, I'm pretty critical about audio systems. I'm very pleased with the Premium system.
After having our first child, I got rid of a Mercedes 240D. I really missed the feel of a German car. I'm thrilled to once again be in a European auto.

Hello, my name is Tyler. I traded in my 2000 Hyundai Tiburon for a Galactic Blue 2001 VW Jetta Wolfsburg edition(I couldn't stand a 2 door car anymore!!!. I love it. There's no other way to put it. Sometimes, I find myself just driving just to spend all the time I possibly can in my car. My Jetta has the sunroof and the Monsoon stereo system. I live in Orlando, so I have no use for heated seats. I really like the BBS wheels. They are very cool. I like to drive with the windows down so I can hear the sweet hiss of the turbo. it's great! I've had the car for 8 days now, and i have 842 miles on the odometer. nothing much else to say. everyone post your stories and lets get this forum going!!!

Cool! This is pretty awesome. But not near as awesome as a drive in a Jetta...Yeah! On a cold day with the sun roof open and the cold wind blowin'! And, of course, the bun warmers on!! )
I can hardly wait for summer!! We're driving to Yellowstone for a springtime vacation this year!! Woohoo!
Thanks again Karen for the cool Jetta room to hang out. ))

Well, today I hit 1000 miles on my Jetta. nothing spectacular yet, but I've only had the car since the 5th. so far, i've had only one minor glitch with my car. it seems the pinch protection on the passenger side window is a little too hyperactive, because almost every time I use the auto up feature, the darn thing rolls back down again. it will be fixed asap, you can guarantee that. well, till next time, happy motoring!!!

Got ya beat on miles!! I have had my Jetta since 2/6/01 and it turned 1300 miles today. The only problem I have had with it is the turn signals have a mind of their own, but it was that way before I bought it, actually took a test drive with no functioning turn signals. Waiting on a relay for it so no big deal. It was -15 this morning (I live in Alaska) and the Jetta started pretty good with minor grumbling, the engine heaters weren't plugged in.
