Pros

Speed. It has alot of pickup

Cons

Paying for maintenance

45

I Love It. — I love the handling and the acceleration. If anything breaks its never mechanical. It is stylish and gets great gas mileage. To repair things its a bit expensive. This car is crazy fun to drive too. I love my car and I wouldnt want it any other way

Pros

Good on gas, long lasting.

Cons

Too many little (expensive) repairs.

25

It's A Love/hate Relationship With The Car. — This car is probably the best car i have ever owned, but it has had more little idioctic problems then nessary. And because its foreign it makes the repairs difficult at times to manage. But overall, Jetta is where its at.

It's FAST!

Cons

Dub P V Dub — Great performance far more than a car this size should have. Good build, great base for aftermarket mods of all sorts on the exterior. Low costs all around as long as you don't crash it. And it is far more fun than it would seem.

Best Car To Own — cheap on fuel, goes fast, fast, cheap to fix, and doesen't need that often, looks good, feels good, and is fun to drive. Starts good in the winter. My last one I sold at 600,00K, and still running well.What more could anyone want?

Pros

German engineering, stiff suspension and 140 top speed.

Cons

High repair costs, shotty transmission, understeer is an issue.

35

Great Touring Sedan, Keeps Up With The Rest, And Solid Build Quality. — Massive amounts of understeer, turbo takes forever to spool, gearbox too loose; can outshift the synchros if youre not careful. On the bright side, the build quality was excellent. The weight is perfectly balanced front to rear, so front end dipping was minimal and the rear end rarely slips out of place.

2001 Vw Jetta Review. — I like the car as far as looks and stuff. But I think the quality of the isn't that good. I mean the plastic peals inside, and it as a wird crayon smell. It also doesn't accelerate fast enough but, what doe's one expect from a four cylinder engine.

Amazing ! <3 — Acceleration is pretty good and Handling is amazing. The appearence of the car is very nice love the interior. It runs on 91 or 94 octane so the tank is probably about 50-55 bucks with the gas prices these days.

Fast, nimble

Not that great of a negative, but it only takes premium.

Techno Warp! — I have the manual turbo, which makes it lots of fun to drive. I got it at 120,000 miles, and had to replace the timing belt (something I knew at the time) and my catalytic converter went out shortly after buying it (I so won't replace it until next year, though.), but other than that it hasn't given me any problems. It's also a very good looking car after it's been washed.

I'm Trading To A Diesel Beetle Ragtop So I'm Sad To See It Go! By Michael

So your car takes premium and gets 35 mpg? Diesel costs the same or less than premium and this car gets twice the mileage, meaning you use 50-60% of the fuel costs. I'm a long distance commuter, a... Read More

Decent By dinocchio

Bought a used car from a dealer with $15000. It's a decent car. The suspension sucks. The look is great. Anything else is normal. The trunk is very spacious. All in all, it's a very decent car with t... Read More

Nice Little Car By Robert
