20v Turbo — This is my first VW, gotta love the 1.8 20V Turbo, pretty fast little car and also sporty, I've hit 134MPH in it. You can still feel the turbo at those high speeds too. Gets about 30MPG, my only complaint is that the check engine light comes on quite often.

Pros

Upgradable and smart design

Cons

a couple electrical quirks

25

Funnest Car I Have Owned! — My car has been highly customizable so far and I had taken advantage of that. With the turbo upgrade coming soon it will compliment the addons already present. Without throwing it up on a dyno I would guess that I am producing 265hp at the crank and maybe more than that in torque. The car handles well and feels very solid.

Awesome Car. — I upgraded from a regular to a diesel for my 2nd car. This car runs well. As my friend put it, "Oooh, diesel power". She has a few nicks and is missing a mirror, but my dad and I are working on her.

Great when brand new.

Cons

Steep down hill after 6 months.

Too Many Recall Notices. — Wolfsburg has a turbo charger. Dealship kept on refusing that there was something wrong. I've driven other turbo charged vehicles so I know what a lag is. The lag was HUGE and it was not corrected... since about six months into the lease.

Good in the winter with snow tires

Cons

No leather in the Wolfsburg Ed.

It's Out Dated — It's been a good reliable car... except when the fuel pump died. Still like Audi much better for comfort and quattro, nothing beats AWD

Pros

Monsoon Audio. BBS rims and a sport-tuned suspension

Cons

Needs a little more omph.

Wolfsberg Is Where Its At — The Wolfsberg Edition Jetta is exactly what a Jetta should be. A four door sedan with a tight suspension and a monsoon audio system to lure the driver to go on a cruise. Even though the Jetta is front-wheel drive the sport-tuned suspension was toght enough to make it feel sporty.

Germans Got Something Right — the car is absolutly amazing in more ways than one. Power is unbelievable, handles like a dream for what it is, and interior is amazing for a car that originally 20,000

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
