Great Great Car — excelent in every aspect great value for the money the 2.5L sounds beauutiful responds excelently the tiptronic gearbox us smooth but when you use the sport option the response is impressive it is comfortable and the suspension keeps the car steady in the curves

Have Two And Will Keep Buying For The Comfort, Ride, Safety And Autobahn Style Driving Dynamics ! — Can't go wrong with a car that can out run a Toyota Prius Hybrid and do better in GAS mileage, right ???

Pros

Fun. Powerful. Handles. Space. Comfort

Cons

could use more power. Trunk wont close after first slam in the winter. The diesel wasn't sold in new york till now. I want the diesel.

I Have To Give It A Title. Sigh — Only regret was not being able to get the diesel power train. The 2.5 still has plenty of torque, and the car handles amazingly. Tiptronic along with just enough traction control makes even the most amateur driver feel like a veteran rally driver. Overall great car for getting five people around comfortably.

45 MPG

Requires Synthetic oil change

Don't Dismiss The Diesel! — Amazing fuel economy & creature comfort abound!! Leather, heated seat, sun roof, satelite radio...have all the options of higher priced vehicles. Quiet, rides nice, does just about everything I want in a car. I get about 42 to 46 mpg on average of both city and highway. Despite higher price on diesel, it still comes out on top. Engines are also designed to go over 300,000 miles.

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!

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.

25

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.
