50MPG

Cons

None

Buy One. — Love 50MPG, Looks are timeless, people think it is a new car. Heated seats <3. Always starts and never makes me worry. Rides smooth and feels tight. German cars just always seem to be better than their counterparts from elsewhere.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Sporty yet affordable

Cons

electrical issues

25

Love It — Standards rock! This car has awesome performance. There are a few problems though. It is a bit of an ugly duckling and these cars can have some electrical problems. If you can get past those negatives though it's a fuel efficient little monster that's quick

Been a great car!

Cons

Takes a long time to warm up in winter

Diesel Miser — 400,000 kms, 4.9 L per 100 k's. Chipped and nozzled, 130 hp at the wheels. My favorite highway ride of all time. And yup, its fun to drive. Cost of timing belts is a lot if you don't do the work yourself.

Great Car To Drive, High Fun Factor — I love my Jetta, a fun car, fun to drive, excellent road feel, great acceleration, handling & braking (ABS). occational electrical problems, repaired by my VW mechanic (now runs great). I love the look, good on gas, burns some oil (typical of 2.0L engine). great amenities and comfort with style!

Pros

The premium features of much larger cars, VR6, pretty good at almost anything.

Cons

could use a bit more low end grunt, should hve 200hp, could be a tiny bit larger, 4motion should have been an option,

Pretty Good At Anything... — The Jetta GLX is a car that is missing in todays VW line up. GLX= LOADED. Rain sensing wipers, auto up and down windows, auto sun roof, great Monsoon 8 speaker sound system that rivals any bose available in a car from 2000.

Smooth, Comfortable, Safe, Cheap

Cons

Get One. — Performance: Smooth, accelerates well, and brakes like a charm! Build Quality: Except for a few loose parts like the front grill, she's solid! Appearance: Looks great on the outside, couple nicks and tiny dents, and interior is fabric which is grey, whereas the dash is black. Cost: Good on gas, so far maintenance isn't bad! Fun: Nice comfy car so fun factor is pretty high.

Cons

little rattles expensive to repair, if they can find them

Dependable, Great On Gas... — it's only a 4cyl, can't expect anything more than a lil pep...that it has and its great on gas...ALOT of rattles are starting to show up, too much road noise, and feel every bump. Car of the Young HS student, a good beat around town mode of transportation. With over 140k miles, it has a long life still ahead of it but it must be treated gingerly...
