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!!

Pros

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.

Pros

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.

Love The Baby Jetts!! — Great car! Be sure to get a good warranty....I broke a couple things that probably would have cost me a lot of money to fix but the platinum warranty I got covers almost everything!!!

Pros

It is a solid, comfortable, fun, fuel efficient car.

Cons

the 2.5L engine has 150HP on 5 cylinders. I wish it were a little bit more ballsy

25

It Is Sure Fun To Drive! — I enjoy the amount of features that this car boasts for its driver. The Transmission is solid and has six speeds for great top end performance. Its top speed is 130MPH, beat that America with your electronic 100mph limit Well priced for those of us YUPPIES who want a nice car but not a big price tag.

Pros

Nice looking, not much needed to make it look good, and good torque

Cons

Some interior rattling, but fixable free through dealer and i wish i had the GLI turbo version, and it gets 25 mpg

35

Good Reliable Car With Good Amount Of Torque And Horsepower (wish I Had The Turbo Version Though) — Great car, it is reliable and has more features than a $50,000 car. Great ride and great amount of torque. Has about 150 horse power stock, with leather seats, 6 disk cd changer and many other options. Great car lot of passenger space and a great modding car. Dont need to do much to make it look good.

Pros

Quick 2.0l Turboed motor delivers around 230hp (not stock) but can cruise at 80mph @ 35mpg. Huge trunk. Four doors. Cheap insurance.

Cons

VW is very proud of their parts and charges too much for them.

The Only Woman Who Hasn't Done Me Wrong. — This is the first new car I ever bought. I cut my teeth on '76 and '67 Beetles, so you could say its in my blood. This car is a well rounded beast that takes car of my every need. Roomy, quick, and economic. What's not to love? Check us out at avdubs.org
