Awesome Car As Long As Mechanically It Behaves! — Ive concluded that VWs are the best and most enjoyable cars to drive, but when something breaks, you better have a deep pocket! With that said, if you consider a VW...especially a VR6, GET THE WARRANTY!! trust me on this one!

Pros

It is the best work car

Cons

Too small for my family

My Jetta — Great Mileage. It is a strong runner. It is an R title but it runs great. Goes great in the snow. Gets like 32 mg. It is fun to drive. I love my heated seats and sunroof. Just a little small for my growing family.

Great For College Girl But Not For Someone With A Passion For Cars — This is a great car for a college girl but i need something with more speed. It handles great and rides smooth but if it only had more power. Its reliable but when work needs to be done be prepared to pay for it.

Black Jetta — The jetta is a wonderfull car. It gets good good gas milage. It handles better than most cars its size do. The turbo really gives it the boost you can sometimes use. It also has a very sleek look to it.

Review Of My Jetta — Great Acceleration and handling. fun to drive. turbo kicks whenever i need it. Well constructed. Low maintenance. Good mileage.. lots of options for aftermarket tuning/upgrades. silver is a good color to have doesnt show all the dirt and dust.

My Curent Car. — I purchased this car to get better fuel economy and because it is the safest car in it's class. James was learning to drive at the time and I knew it would be a great car to learn with. It has been a pleasure to drive and own.

It's Green....lol — I like everything about it, except the cost of repairing it. I have dumped $2200 in the head and timing belt and am now about to dump another $2200 for tranny and clutch. But it is a dependable car as long as you can fix it right.

Fun and comfy!

cost of maintenance

I Heart My Volkswagen Jetta! — I love my little jetta! It has excellent handling, tight suspension... It's really fun to drive on curvy roads. It's not the fastest thing, it can take a while to accelerate, but it's not horribly slow. The brakes are amazing... Well, probably cuz i just got new brake pad thingys... It's super safe. I love the interior, it's really comfy, and it looks pretty cool for just basic cloth. It's not the coolest looking thing on the outside, a little boxy, but i'm definitely not embarrassed to be seen in it. It's a great car. It's really low maintenance.... You only have to get an oil change, etc., every 5,000 miles, which is great, but maintenance can be expensive. It cost me nearly 400 bucks to get transmission fluid put in that thing (it did include a transmission flush, but....) because Volkswagen is all nazi and made their cars so that most people can't do simple maintenance like that on their own cars. But as long as it's properly maintained, it's a great car, really well built, gets pretty good gas mileage, and doesn't look half bad.

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
