Pros

I love the gas mileage, about 29 miles highway. Also the heated leather seats.

Cons

Not a heavy ride but I guess that helps on the gas mileage.

Very Reliable Car. — I have really enjoyed this car. It has great pickup & handles very well. Easy to maneuver anywhere. I love all the little extras that you get on a European car. The sunroof & the German technology are 2 of the other reasons I have really enjoyed owning this car.

I bught this car used in October 2013 and I love it. It handles great, gets great gas mileage and it runs like a bat out of !!!! Love the automatic-standard option.

Cons

I don't have any idea about the cars maintenance history. I have had a couple of warning lights come on.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — I like the lines of the car. The Wolfsburg Edition trim package is exceptional. This is the 3rd VW I have owned. The first 2 were 70's era Beetles. They were very reliable and that influenced me in deciding to purchase this car.

Great Car — I have owned two Jettas, a 2007 and 2009. Both are excellent vehicles. Good pep to the engine, but not too much so that young drivers can get in trouble. Great brakes with quick stops. The seats are firm, but very comfortable for a long drive. I routinely take this car on 3-4 hour drives with no fatigue or aching back. Gas mileage is good, with about 27 MPG in mixed driving and 32 MPG on the highway. Trunk is good sized, for the vehicles. A great car!

Pros

This car was my first Volkswagen and definitely won't be my last. The 2.5L engine has a lot of get-up-and-go, and at 110,000 miles, it drives like the day I bought it. When performing VW-recommended maintenance, it only requires an oil change ever 10,000 miles. It is a breeze to drive, park, and get around in. Stereo sounds great and it has a ton of space in the trunk. With VW's base carrier bars, I've added bike racks, transported home a 16-foot extension ladder, and can add carriers for just about anything if needed. I'm also very fortunate to have an ASE-certified VW mechanic in my area who's not affiliated with any car dealers.

Cons

If you go to a dealer, maintenance is very expensive. I'm fortunate to have a mechanic who specializes in VW nearby and his shop is the only reason I'm loyal to the brand (because properly maintained, its hard to stop these cars). It is a compact car, so families might find it a bit challenging on space for car seats, etc.

I Will Keep This Car Until The Wheels Fall Off — I love this car. Though the Jetta is built in Mexico now (as was this 2007), and the newer model years have gotten away from the high-quality German parts, the 2007 has the solid Volkswagen legacy and engineering without many drastic changes that they've made lately (cheaper parts, less German-inspired design). Owners new to VW brand may (and probably should) be put off by the cost of maintenance at a local dealer. I was fortunate enough to find a local mechanic who specializes in only VAG (Volkswagen Auto Group) vehicles and charges a lot less. However, even at dealer prices, regular maintenance is critical to longevity of this vehicle. As my mechanic says, only two things will stop this car: an accident and rust.

Great — I didn't like how small it was. I think it was just because I want a bigger car. Other than that it is a nice car. It is inexpensive but it makes you feel like you are driving a way more expensive car

Volkswagens For Life — Everything about this car is absolutely amazing, the performance is awesome, it drives great and especially for long trips it is so comfortable to be in. The appearance of the car is awesome too, I love its clean look inside and out. However it is quite expensive to own, if something goes wrong the part(s) is usually soooo much money :( but gas isn't so bad because it is pretty good on gas. All in all I love my car!

2007 Vw Is Great Car — The cuteness and the space for your family. The fuel economy his car gets. How people all over the world love their jettas and take care of them so they stay nice and clean all year long. This has been a awesome car for us and it will be for you too.

All Around Love It! — I have had no issues with my car. I have had it for almost 5 years. Starting to make a funny noise now but hope to get checked out soon and hopefully there is no major issue. The car is a great little commuter. It has a lot of space and I've traveled alot in it.
