Pros

It's a VDUB, so you know it's amazing!

Cons

Cost if it ever needs repair

25

Work In Progress — I bought the 09 Jetta because my 97 Jetta broke down, it was a sad yet happy day. The performance is decent but can always use more horsepower and torque. Build quality is good as expected from VW. Interior and exterior are nice but in need of upgrades like leather and suede in the interior and atleast blackout of the chrome piece in front if not a full body kit. Cost of ownership is low at the moment with great gas mileage and only needing oil changes every 10,000 miles which come in handy because i drove almost 5,000 miles in the first month of owning it. The car is lots of fun and the 5 cylinder engine is a great conversation starter

Mileage 8) — Great gas mileage at 40 plus miles to the gallon, but yet really fun to drive. It is built like a sports sedan and the turbo gives it plenty of passing power on the two laners we drive everyday. The ability to switch to a manual transmission through the use of the DSG is a blast and a great safety feature on icey roads.

I Am Very Impressed With The Design And Soundness Of Construction. — I like the precise handling and braking. The suspension is a good balance of comfort and sportiness. The manual transmission and clutch operate with precision. I got the cheapest model available and it still has all the power features, terrific 8-speaker stereo, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, stability control, traction control, electronic differential lock and heated seats. Plus, it has front seat and side curtain air-bags. I don't understand some reviewers complaining about expensive service, the maintenance is pre-paid for the first 36,000 miles! Yes, it takes more than 6-quarts of expensive synthetic oil; but for anyone wanting to take care of their car, that's a good thing. The standard 2.5L engine has 170-hp, way more than anything in its size/price category. Because of the standard safety features and anti-theft device, insurance is cheaper than my Honda!

Very Fast — 5 cyl 2.5 L can do 0-60 in a very low time.. hasn't broken down yet, but it is a new car with less than 3k miles on it. very fast. Everything is automatic including blutooth. Transmission goes in all the regular auto selections plus a semi-auto mode plus a sport gear. very nice car.

Pros

Nice to drive, well built

Cons

Top speed not up to scratch

25

I Love This Car... — This car is an elegant well built German car, it handles like it is on rails. However, the 1.9 tdi engine does not do it justice. It has good torque through 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears but lacks that exrta bit of power when you need it. The ride quality is impeccable and it is extremely roomy. This car's party piece is the huge boot which could easily carry up to 7 dead bodies... Overall, it is the best car I have ever driven and would highly recommend it...

Would Buy Another — I have about 30,000kms on it already it had been great so far, not as good fuel economy as my 2001 Jetta 1.9l, it's quicker acceleration wise but top end is fairly close around 195km/h. It has alot more back seat room and a larger trunk which come in handy for the kids and groceries

I'm Trading To A Diesel Beetle Ragtop So I'm Sad To See It Go! By Michael
