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

45

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.

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.

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
