Vw Jetta Tdi — I like the Performance – acceleration, braking, handling is superb. The Build Quality is generally very Good in comparison. The car's Appearance – both interior and exterior styling is good and the Cost of Ownership – like diesel consumption is one of the best. Maintenance is also OK at 15 000 km intervals. The Fun Factor – This car is fun to drive

2006 Vw Jetta Tdi — This car is a tank! Carries tons of kids and golf clubs! Huge head room inside spacious enough for my 6'4" son. Clean and sleek lines on the outside. Rides great. Excellent diesel mileage 1000 k to the tank. Super fun to drive to the beach with the moon/sun roof and all the windows down! Great pick up with 5 speed stick!

Good Performer And Yet Not Compromise Any Luxury Feature — * Performance – Pretty good performace. Overall happy, would be better if there is more power * Build Quality - Good and solid build quality. Have all the luxury features but also can have sport car feel * Appearance – like its look. Looks and feel expensive I would recommend this car to everyone that is looking for performance and also luxury.

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

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!

My Baby. — The performance of the car is amazing. No repairs needed, just the oil changed every 5000 miles. No squeaks or rattles. The exterior and Interior of the car is beautiful only a few minor scratches. and the Interior has the GLI Plaid stitch. The cost of ownership is very low, I commute 450 miles a week and it costs roughly 60 dollars a week for gas and there is nothing really to be maintained which costs a lot. This car is extremely fun to drive.

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!!

Great MPG rating. Not a bad looking car. Trunk space w/ folding down seats to make even more room.

Cons

Wont get a amazing looking car or tons of HP or speed.

Safe — One of the safest side impact cars you can get. The TDI gets 40+ MPG so saves you a few bucks. Has TONS of trunk space for those of you that need to go to the store you dont have to take your SUV to fit everything in. And to top it off its diesel so it will last longer than most other cars. The rear seats fold down to fit even more in that trunk of yours. Handling acceleration and braking is good for everyday use, its no race car but who needs one for everyday use? if your looking for that go look at a ferrari.

Sounds sick and different stock. Wow people with your crazy diesel sedan.

Cons

Diesel is $4.20+ a gallon. Fill-ups hurt, but are few and far between.

I Love My Tdi — Great mileage. Quick pick-up. Fun to drive. Couldn't ask for more out of an economy car. Looks that impress too.
