150bhp Tdi Engine — NIce body sharp and colour, Nice build Quality, reliable, cheap running cost, just little bit slow. normal TDi ENGINE is not fast enough for this car, should get myself a 150bhp TDi ENGINE. more powerful and much faster. and if next time I need a car to replace this one, I will get myself a nice 4X4, haha.

2006 Jetta Is A Lemon — Car has been in the shop for various problems 2 times for engine cooling fan failure. 4 times for check engine light ( 4 NOX sensors replaced) all under warranty BUT the inconvenience factor was a pain. 5th time for check engine light along with wiring harness and cooling fan total bill $3000.00 plus. This car qualifies for lemon law!!

Well Worth The Investment. — Love getting almost 600 miles on ONE TANK! Acceleration is good thanks to the turbo. Brakes are awesome, stop on a dime, which is good because this car ride smoothly and you will be cruising above the speed limit before you know it. Very little wind noise, handles like a dream in gusting winds too. Lots of leg room in the rear. Fuel miser, low maintenance and fun to drive. Sunroof and premium sound system rock! Your teenager will fight you for he keys!

Great German Engineering At An Affordable Price. — I bought the car new in May 2006. I now have 185,000 kms on it and I have not had a single repair other that routine maintenance. I have replaced a few bulbs, the serpentine belt at 150,000 kms and rear brakes at 95,000 kms. The front brakes are still original and have 1/4" of pad left. The car is still as tight as the day I drove it off the dealer lot. I would not change one thing on this car. I get an average 1,000 kms per tank (55 litre). The original Bridgestone tires lasted 92,000 kms and I switched to Nokian WRG2 that now have 93,000 kms. They are due for replacement this fall. These are winter tires that you drive all year long so I don't have to have a second set. This is by far the best car I have ever owned and I am planning to keep it as long as I can. The VW mechanics all say that it is now just "broken-in" and I believe them.

Cool And Somewhat Good Looking — Very fun to drive in in sport mode. very eco with 57.5 MPG! that alot for a car that can go 156 MPH. very cool looking too just needs a body kit. I get this cat when I'm 15 1/2, but for now I drive on the back roads.

The Yetta — good starting car, i really love it. the looks are great. interior is nicely done, as well as the exterior. the braking is really good, and it excellerates well. the shifting is smooth, and the manual mode is pretty sick. overall its a really nice car to start out with

Incredible Car. Love It — i like the handling but it could use a little more horsepower. havent had any problems just scheduled maintenance. its a fun car. the car will save you money in the long run because of the diesel which will run longer and get you 40-50 mpg.

Get Over The Looks And You Will Have A Great Car — Great car.Had a 2005 A3 2.0T before this and this is better for my needs as have now gone from spending NZ $ 160-180 every other weekend to NZ $ 80-90.Sure its not as fun as the A3 ( I knew that would be the case ).But once on the open road you wouldnt know that its a TDI under the bonnet.Mid range overtaking seems better that A3.
