Love It, Helps Me Save Money On Gas. — I enjoy it. The car looks nice and the sunroof is a nice addition. Very comfortable to drive. Very quiet on the interior whether you're driving locally or on the highway. Didn't need to be taken to the shop often. Gas mileage is great, I'd say i get 28-30mpg. Replacement parts were a little difficult to find but you can find them at a fair price online. The handling of the car is great, it helped me avoid a couple of close calls on the road. Overall good car for daily commuting.

3 — 4 the best time ever,find some roads like coming down Mt. Washington, and add some straights like New England Dragway! Who needs a turbo when you have the VR6 engine, 0 to sixty in 4.8 seconds, stops on a dime and leaves you change!

I Love This Car. — I liked this car so much I bought another one. It is a great driving car and comfortable on the road. The back seats are good for small children but would be a little tight for teans and young adults.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Beauty — Its my first car and i absolutely love it to death, lots of power, very reliable, looks good. Its pretty average on gas, i get up to 450 km on a tank which isn't bad, but could be better. I strongly suggest it to all other people thinking about getting one.

Excellent Deal For Mechanically Sound Car — The gas mileage for this 2000 Jetta is aound 30 miles per gallon with mileage being mostly highway. This car has been very reliable with minimal maintenance costs and to our knowledge is in excellent mechanical shape. It has never left us stranded and we rely on it as a second vehicle to drive to and from work (about 10 miles each way).

1 Inch To The Ground. — It was my first car, better power with a Unitronic chip, got GLI seats, lots of mods, sleek styling, still looks good today, fuel efficient and good in any weather. Fun to drive and roomy for cargo and friends. I loved that car and it was hard to sell it.

Fuel Economy Of A Hybrid For Less! — All TDI owners know what you buy a TDI for: Fuel Economy. With the cost of fuel continually increasing, the TDI is a great way to beat the price of fuel. The TDI gets anywhere from 40-50 MPG depending on transmission choice, how you drive it and if the car is in need of service. The interior is adequate for a small car, though the backseat is cramped. There is plenty of trunk space and a decent audio system. The engine has plenty of low end torque, but the power tends to top off after 3000-4000 RPM not gaining much. 5 Speed manual recommended.
