Awesome running car.  Good mileage.  About 50mpg town.

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.

Pros

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.

Pros

Good in the winter with snow tires

Cons

No leather in the Wolfsburg Ed.

25

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.

45

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.
