Pros

trunk space and that it was the first VW car i owned.  not gonna lie, im liking volkswagen lol

Cons

feels cramped in the back seat for me

35

V-dub Yo Lolz — good all around fun car. lot of trunk space and comfortable to sit in the front. will keep stock and trade in for VW Scirocco lol nothing wrong with the jetta or even the TDI model but come on....50 mph hatch and looks better than the golf. Had high hopes for the Golf R, but the price isnt right. 15,000 for a scirocco sounds way better than 36,000 for a Golf R.

requires 91 octane gas and the ride is bad on bumpy roads.

Excellent Performance For A Daily Driver — The brakes are awesome, the engine is even better and the transmission is butter smooth. I've only had 3 services so far in 25,000 miles; absolutely no other problems. The car looks good, inside and out. It has many brilliant features, light sensing dash lights, pop-out headlight washers, DSG trans, heated mirrors, remote window roll-down & roll-up. HID headlights, electro- mechanical steering and the list goes on.

Pros

Great Interior, Manuel Tranny, Fuel-economy, Torquey 5 cylinder

Cons

Bland exterior, little low on horse power

75

Best Sedan Under $23k — Great sedan with excellent build quality. A lot of standard features for the base level model. Handling and steering are excellent for a FWD car. Engine has plenty of torque and adequate horsepower. Manuel transmission features silky smooth shifter and clutch. Interior appointments are top notch and has plenty of room for 5 adults. Trunk is a cavern. Exterior styling could be the cars downside. While the front looks cool and aggressive the rear end looks bland and Toyota Corolla-like. Fuel economy for me is 28mpg over 2.5 years of mixed driving. Overall Best Sedan you can buy under $23,000.

Pros

Minimal turbo lag, gobs of power, 6-speed tranny, interior and exterior styling

Cons

stock ride height, factory tires

Jetta Just Keeps Getting Betta — I love this car, after having spent 2 years with the older JettaIV. Huge improvement over the previous model in fit and finish, handling, turbo lag and interior space. The car has balanced curves, something lacking in most sedans in its class. I have it lowered 1.5" with Eibach springs and Pirelli PZero's, which gives a huge improvement in body roll, turn in and traction for not a lot of money, and without sacrificing ride comfort - don't suffer with the overly high stock ride height and pathetic factory Michelins!

Vw Gli 2006 — Love it and would never own another car other than a VW or an Audi. Very reliable, fast, and can add a lot of cool add ons to it. Good gas mileage considering it is a sports car and the black and red trim with red calibers makes it cool to look at.

fuel effiency

Standard Tdi Jetta — Great fuel milage- 50-55mpg if you drive normally, 45 if you have a lead foot. Made of steal and a heavy gauge that is aproved in Germany. The appearance is very sportsy and sleak, very nice. however the it has had much electronical problems, besides that, it runs beautifully. The clutch is a true VW- VERY TRICKY. will stall in a heart beat, but if you can drive it you can drive any standard. I perfer this car though over any other (including the caddy).

I Was Going How Fast Officer? — all around great car for the price. The paddle shifters are fun. Get up and go could be better but once the turbo kicks in its becomes more fun. I was going to go for the leather but for some odd reason decided the plaid to be more fun -- i made the right call imho.
