Cons

Nice Vw Jetta — The care is very nice. It handles well and is a smooth ride. The sun/moon roof is nice. The truck is really big. The down side of the car is that it doesnt have much acceleration but the up side to that is that it gets around 30 miles a gallon.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Handles Like A Audi A4 — My favorite car to date that I have owned. It is a economy sports car priced, but much faster then she appears. Recaro Bucket Race front seats, handles like a sports car. Very easy to maintain and well priced overall.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

bodacious fuel mileage

Cons

comes with noisy michelin tires

05 Tdi Jetta Vw — This is the diesel model, which is quiet and odorless, unless I use bio, and then it generally smells like french fries. I bought it with 10,000 miles, and have put on 45,000 so far. The car gets amazing fuel mileage, over 50 mpg on the highway and rarely under 35 in town! I have no clue why Americans are anti-diesel, but it's about time to get over it. The car is so far advanced in emissions it doesn't even register at the DEQ. It isn't a speed demon, but easily gets up to high speeds on cross country travel. Maintenance cost is minimal, I've only ever changed oils and filters. Stock tires are loud, but when replaced with quality Yokohamas the entire ride got way better and quieter. One problem with the trunk remote was replaced under warranty. Only problem I see is that they are very difficult to find, new or used, as they are in such high demand.

Cons

European reliabilty

Vw Diesel Gets 40-45 Mpg's — I have very mixed feelings about this car...I love what it was capable of, and what it was supposed to do. But the fact of the matter is, it kept failing! The engine and transmission were the only thing I didn't have problems with. So I sold it, went Japanese, and couldn't be happier!

Awesome Sauce — I overall enjoyed this car, like I said it's really fun to drive. Its a great car for someone who needs space and power. It also looks great, interior has the bucket racing seats. But this car does need to be cared for properly or it can get costly.

VW is an awesome car company! They only use the best parts! And because it is a manual diesel we get excellent gas mileage

Fantastic Value — I know.... Jetta: Girl's Car. Not true. This Car has a polished Five Cylinder and a slick manual Trans. The Interior is second to none and the handling is on par with anything in the compact front drive category.

Fun Car — really enjoyed owning and driving this car, until it snowed. the stock BBS wheels and tires are not winter friendly. Car is reliable, interior was fantastic, handled and sounded great. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Hard to get a good deal on them!

Jetta 2.5 - Good Commuter Car — I'd recommend this car to anyone who's looking for a good commuter or a fun car to drive. Aside from the wheels, the car has not cost me that much in terms of cost of ownership. Some complain of the noise, I'm not.
