Hey can someone give me guidance on the difference in the GLX or GLS. I have 2000 Jetta VR6, full leather, power everything, I have pics on here (which is for sale by the way). Thanx in advance.
I must not understand the question, but here goes. I presume that you have the GLX model, because the biggest difference between the GLX and the GLS is the engine... the GLX has 6 cylinders and the GLS has 4. Why anyone would need all the power of a 6 cylinder engine in a Jetta baffles me because the GLX must take off like a rocket. The GLS has plent of power, except perhaps on steep hills. If I lived in the Rockies, I'd want the bigger engine. There are other lesser differences between the GLX and the GLS. Basically the GLX is the luxury version with lots of bells and whistles that will eventually fail. I love VW engines and trannies, but they can't seem to make reliable accesories, like power windows or cruise control. Both models have cruise control; mine failed around 80K miles. The GLX has heated leather seats and heated mirrors, the GLS has cloth seats; no heated components. The GLX is for people who want a Passat, but can't afford it.
