Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL

Key Features & Specs View full specs EPA Classification

The size class is determined by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The size class for cars is determined by the interior passenger and cargo volumes. The size class for trucks is defined by the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is the weight of the vehicle and its carrying capacity.

Compact MPG/MPGe

EPA estimates for fuel efficiency (measured on a mile-per-gallon basis) are based on laboratory tests conducted by manufacturers according to federal regulations. EPA re-tests about 10% of vehicle models to confirm manufacturers’ results.

29 Highway / 23 City Engine

An engine’s displacement is the total volume of the engine’s combustion chambers, a rough index of the engine’s size and power. This is typically measured in liters (3.2L, for example), though sometimes it is expressed in cubic inches. I-4 and V-6 refer to the configuration and number of cylinders.

Gas I4 2.0L/121 cu in Transmission

The transmission adapts the output of the engine to the drive wheels. Transmissions usually have multiple gear ratios (“gears”) with the ability to switch between them as speed varies (6 gear ratios = “6 Speed”). Transmissions must either be controlled manually by the driver (“Manual Transmission”) or automatically by the vehicle (“Automatic Transmission”). One type of Automatic Transmission is the Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) which doesn’t have a fixed number of gears.

Automatic w/OD Drive Train

The drivetrain of a vehicle is the group of components that deliver the engine’s power to the drive wheels. Common configurations include front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Volkswagen Jetta Review! Good or Bad Car?

The Ultimate Commuter: ’99.5-’03 VW Jetta TDI

Here at Driving Line, we’re pretty big on drift cars, drag racing, dirt blasting and generally anything that goes fast on-road and off. But, all of us have to get to work somehow, and in most cases, high horsepower and long highway stretches don’t bode well in the mpg department.

For years, budget-minded commuters have turned to diesel powered compacts, sedans, and hatchbacks as a means of saving money at the pump. At the forefront of this trend has been Volkswagen’s Jetta TDI models. For utmost fuel efficiency, solid reliability, and reasonable comfort, the ’99.5-’03 model year Jettas have been (and continue to be) one of the best all-around vehicles to use as daily commuters. The fact that the highly sought after ALH code 1.9L turbodiesel engines utilizes a rotary style injection pump and is known to last well beyond 300,000 miles, make them a standout on the reliability front.

From a fuel efficiency standpoint, these cars get 45 to 50 mpg (highway) in bone-stock trim when equipped with a manual transmission. From a comfort standpoint, they’re no Mercedes Benz, but they do offer a surprisingly pleasant ride for a compact with a cheap price tag. We recently got our hands on the GLS model Jetta shown here for all of the above reasons. Read on and you’ll see why we had no reservations about picking up a 13-year old car with 200,000 miles on the clock.

And, because we know it’s a hot topic right now in the automotive world, we’ll go ahead and answer the question: No, this Jetta is not involved in VW’s recent emissions cheat scandal (that affects cars built from ’09 to ‘15).

High Demand

Due to high demand and dwindling supply of the ’99.5-’03 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, at this point these cars are nearly collector items. After searching high and low for three months, we finally found this highway-mile gem in central Kentucky. We’re not kidding when we say that our hunt for the perfect Jetta (zero rust, five-speed manual, no performance add-ons, immaculate interior, and the right price) was downright exhausting — so much so that we dread ever having to do it again.

The Most Reliable Engine

The 1.9L turbodiesel (ALH code) engine is as simple as it gets. It’s a timing belt driven, single-overhead cam, 8-valve inline-four that’s mounted sideways under the hood. Being a modern diesel, the injection system is pretty simple, too. Direct injection means fuel is sprayed directly in-cylinder (right into the fuel bowl built into the piston). Two-stage (i.e., pilot and main event) mechanical injectors and the proven VP37 Bosch rotary electronic injection pump are employed, along with no lift pump being relied upon (one less failure point).

Standard Shift

For those in the know (and for newbies, just the same), a manual transmission is the only way to roll with a ’99.5-’03 ALH Jetta. The 01M four-speed automatic that was offered in these cars was extremely notorious for failure. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 02J manual transmission is well-known for its reliability and durability. To be sure, all of these cars were built the same way in that the firewall and floorboard provisions are there to easily swap a manual in place of an auto, hence all of the auto-to-manual swaps you see.

The One Weak Link

Believe it or not, most of the problems associated with the ’99.5-’03 Jettas exist in the interior (you can’t have it all, right?). The inner door panels fall apart, the hood and glove box latches quit working, the headliner sags, and the center console hinge fails, to name a few problem areas. Luckily, all of the aforementioned items were in perfect working order for us.

Miles Are Not a Problem

After speaking with several former and current VW technicians, we weren’t afraid of finding a high-mile Jetta. According to nearly everyone we spoke with, it’s not uncommon to find 400,000+ miles on the odometers of these cars.

50 MPG

This is the reason people still buy these things… We drove 586 miles, only needed 11.3 gallons to top off, and spent just $22 on fuel. That hand calculates out to more than 51 mpg! After the first three months of ownership, we’ve seen an overall average of 49 mpg (mostly highway but with city stints mixed in). On a full tank and straight highway driving, we’re convinced it’s possible to go 800 miles without stopping for fuel.

More Power, More MPG

With just 90hp on tap from the factory, a little extra kick is welcomed in the ’99.5-’03 Jetta TDI’s. Luckily, companies like Kerma TDI offer programmers that add as much as 25hp and 60 lb-ft of torque at the front wheels. On top of that, they can further improve fuel economy by an extra 1-to-2 mpg.
