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.

It Is My Baby!! My Next Car Will Be A Volkswagen — This was probably one of the best investments I have made so far. My Jetta is amazing. It handles well, looks good, and its fast.

Good Car But Expensive For That Kind Of Car — Yes, once I had the bad Idea to leave Volvo for Volkswagen, It was nice to work there but I really don't like the cars that much. No value for money, bad seats, engine makes a lot of noice... it was reliable and the acceleration was ok but the handling wasn't great, brakes neither...

Barely Filled It Up — Sold it because im waiting for the one with bigger horsepower, slow acceleration, but overall the car was mint.. sold it for more then i paid was a great first car, wished i never sold it to tell you the truth.. no problems ever occurred except for a wheel bearing which had to be replaced due to the rims, nothing more

Very Fuel Efficient And Solid, Torquey, Great Suspension, Slowww. — This car got 40 miles per gallon combined city-highway on a bad day. On a good day it got 45 mpg. It was awesome and fun to drive, it loved curves in the road. I put 40,000 miles on mine and traded it for an Audi A3. It's too bad the current TDI only has 105 HP...

For What It Is, Its A Pretty Sweet Car. — VW Jettas were never meant to be race cars, so i guess it shouldn't really be reviewed like one. However, it does give you a pretty good sense of performance, particularly when you first drive it. The main thing you notice when driving the car is that you barely feel speed. You can literally be doing 90 mph and feel like you are doing 55. Acceleration is by no means blistering, but it is relatively quick and won't get you into any hairy situations trying to merge into traffic. The car is very comfortable for a tiny vehicle, and while the suspension is stiff enough to keep the car from rolling through turns, it is not so bad that your back hurts after a drive to school. Overall I think this is a great car.

I Love It! — I'm a sucker for the VW, but this would have to be my favourite so far. I love the economy of the diesel. I generally fill up once every 4 - 6 weeks.

Really fun daily driver for younger people.  A great car all around, all the economy of a Honda but with a lot more fun.

Cons

Appearance, the taillights and it rides really high.

Excellent Car — I actually bought one of these, it's been awesome. I have driven 19,000 miles on it. It is the best car I have ever owned. It is quick, 0-60 in 6.7 seconds, ran a 14.9 at the drag strip. It is capable of good gas mileage, but it's hard to not run all out all the time. It does understeer, but you can force it to oversteer quite easily. It is really fun to drive and it is easy to drive on the highway. I can do about 450 miles on a tank at 75 mph. The brakes are unbelievably good. The car is excellent for anyone looking for a fun daily driver. The trunk space is also very good. The trunk is much larger than it seems. You can fit 3-4 large suit cases with the seats up. The engine also requires little maintenance, the first two oil changes are at 5000 and 10000; then they are every 10000 miles.
