Volkswagen Has Got Me Sold. I'd Buy Another One In An Instant. — - My 2007 Volkswagen Jetta may be a base model, but it is definitely not a penalty box. It really is a great car and I'm glad I purchased it. I'll admit that Volkswagen wasn't even on my list. I was looking for American cars but on my way to a Chevy dealership I happened to see a Volkswagen dealership and decided to stop in. The dealer put me in a black Jetta with a 5-speed manual and only 31,000 on the odometer. I drove it for 5 minutes and immediately fell in love with the car. Performance is totally respectable for that 2.5L 5-cylinder motor under the hood. The car only makes 150 hp but it definitely feels much more powerful. I can do wild and crazy burnouts with both wheels spinning on command. Its engine noise is very different but sounds great. Gas mileage is also totally respectable. I'm averaging around 20 mpg in the city (my driving style is spirited so that's pretty good) and I get about 33 mpg on the highway at a steady 85 mph. The ride is a little stiff but it's supple enough to not be punishing. That stiff ride makes the car handle beautifully. The steering is practically telepathic and is weighted nicely. The 5-speed manual transmission feels great. The shifter feels great in the hand and feels good as you row through the gears. The clutch is a little bit tall for my liking but the pedal take-up is light and linear. The brakes perform and feel better than the brakes in my grandfather's BMW 328xi sedan. The styling of the exterior is handsome but a bit plain. Since my car is the base model it comes with 15-inch steel wheels with hubcaps which are boring but don't look too bad. I love the turn signal repeaters on the side view mirrors but I could do without the factory rear spoiler. The interior is very attractive with high quality materials. The blue and red backlit controls and gauges look great and the 10 speaker AM/FM stereo with a CD player and auxiliary input jack is loud with crystal-clear sound. The front seats have plenty of adjustment and the steering wheel both tilts and telescopes allowing anyone to get comfortable but some of the adjustments are awkward to reach. The car has plenty of headroom and legroom front and rear although hip room is a little tight since it's such a narrow car. This car must have been designed with performance in mind because the seats are incredibly comfortable and have tons of lateral support making them awesome for drives down my favorite twisty roads. The trunk is massive and the car won't tire you out over long distances making it a great road trip car. With regard to the interior my biggest complaint is the lack of rear cup holders. In order to get rear cup holders you must order the car with the rear center armrest. This is a major oversight in my opinion. I've never even heard of another car with upholders being optional. Cup holders are also really important for me because I'm always driving friends around and my rear passengers need them. So far the cost of ownership has been cheap, although I've only had the car for 2 months and 4,000 miles. The only thing I've had to put money into was gas. It’s just a rewarding car to drive and I would recommend it to anyone.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Handling and road manners are superb

Cons

Not terribly fast

I Love It. Might Not Be For Everybody But It's Exactly What I Need, And It's A Joy To Drive. — I bought this in July, and I'm absolutely thrilled with it. Not overly fast, but the handling is fantastic, and the 5 spd manual is smooth. Build quality is near-perfect, looks great, and good on gas. In the back roads it's a hoot.

Pros

Decent fuel mileage

Cons

A bit expensive for the overall package

Nice Family Car — Good looking car, very roomy and tons of cargo room. Handling and braking is superb for the price, though the Euro suspension would be a welcome upgrade. Gas mileage is decent, about 25mpg highway. Very torquey engine low to midrange, though upper RPM band is lackluster. Maintenance isn't *too* bad, though I don't like having to remove the plastic fairing under the engine to change my oil. TPMS system doesn't always work right either. Heated seats are a definate plus.

Pros

good Fuel milage, fair power, smooth transmission (Manual), WARRENTY

Cons

needs a wee bit more power. RWD would have been nice too, and most definately a TDI would have been 10x better

Wunderba Auto, Good For A First Car — I love this car, I am a huge fan of german engineering, though I normally drive older BMWs I own 3 cars right now and the jetta is my daily. its got enough power to make me have bit of fun, could use a better tune though since the euro version is almost exactly the same mechanically but pushes 170hp and 190ft lbs of torque vs the US 150hp and 17Ft/Lbs of torque. I wish VW would have stuck with a more independent body style instead of merging into what everyone else is doing. but its to be expected from new cars

I Love It And Would Buy Another In A New York Minute. — The only "complaint" I have about this car is that it is a little slow from start. It seems like the power hits in third gear. Other than that it's well built with great fit and finish. Everything is where it should be and works perfectly. Gas mileage is excellent and luggage space is abundant. I love the sharp, sporty look. It's fun to drive and a blast in the corners.

Think Of It Like The Billy Cart You Had As A Kid - Poorly Built But A Heap-o-fun! — On the upside: Superb Handling, great brakes, steering just beautiful, big grip, car feels small and agile, great lateral support from sports seats Good performance from Turbo engine - impressive torque for a 2.0L engine...really needs RWD or 4WD to better put power to the ground though. DSG transmission is just perfect And on the downside : Cheap interior with poor build quality eg: rattles in dash and annying static noise from one speaker (poor connection). Automatic headlights come on at really odd times by themselves and the posh up/down electronic headlight adjustment still makes them point too low and makes night driving a real pain.

Price tag is high

Great! — This car is great. I bought it at 17,000 miles and it still is running smoothly. The price tag was pretty high though - $18,000. Still the interior and quality of the car are off the charts. A must have first vehicle. Great quality and excellent branding used. Inside it has an excellent roomy interior with plenty of head, arm and leg room. Grocery shopping comes with ease in this 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!

First Car I Ever Purchased, I'm In Love With It! — This is the first car I bought, my parents had given me a 2000 Acura TL when I was 16 and that thing lasted me forever. Im 21 now, and my Acura died so I needed to find a new car, came across my VW Jetta Wolfsburg edition at a used car dealer and immediately fell in love with it. I purchased a silver automatic one with 35,500 miles on it for about $15,000 which is actually a really great deal. There were very few imperfections inside and out. I love the way it drives it's definitely a fun car to drive and its very spacious for a small sedan. Definitely made a good choice when it came to buying a VW.
