Better Than Most — I loooooooved this car. But I am a Bimmer fan. The second owner, and took great care of this car using only premium synthetics. Went on two road trips in this, and never ever has had an issue. I also changed out the lights, so those are new too!

Great Car To Own! — I've had this car for 100,000 kms and it's been good. I've lost a turbo and clutch but I've also had a few different drivers on this car. Maintenance can be costly but I've noticed that I have fewer repairs that need to be done. I've transitioned this car to my son now because I do trust it. Keep up the maintenance and it's wonderful.

Awesome — I loved this car!! When clean, it still looks like new, 8 years later? The only issue I have ever had is that it sounds like a truck because it is a diesel. In fact, sometimes people comment on the engine not knowing about diesels...

Great Car For Drivers — I have owned this car for three years after purchasing used. It has been reliable and low cost to own. Currently needs a Dual Mass Flywheel replaced. The recall for this issue skipped this particular vehicle as it was a 2007 model but sold/acknowledged as a 2006. I would buy another.

Pros

Big trunk, motor has a lot of torque.

Cons

Wish it was better on gas. Likes to eat light bulbs.

Fun Car To Drive — One of my favorite drives (which I've owned) of all time. It's quick and very responsive. Loads of trunk space and ample cabin room. I have never changed so many light bulbs on a car ever. Every once in a while a bunch will burn out one right after another and then stop for a couple of months then start burning out one by one all over again.

Pros

LEMON

Cons

LEMON due to electronic malfunction that caused the car to seize

25

Jettas Are Economical If You Do Not Get A Lemon — Electronics caused engine to quit and lock down due to a security feature Great on gas if the engine was properly built Cargo space was ample... backseat leg room limited Peep in her step for being a 2.0 but overall Lemon

Great Car — this car is great.Rides very comfy. The only thing that is a dislike is the vibration as you engage and disengage the clutch. I have just installed a set of michelin x ice snow tires!!!! this car is really quite fun to drive and handles very good. The coolest thing is when you turn your lights on at night the display is great!!!!
