Me And My Jetta — This is the Amazing Compact car I ever owned, Much better than Hondas & Toyotas. There is no comparison when it comes to Long rides. Silent cabin is best in the car. Boot space is better than Camry. My Babies love my car.

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.

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

not much at all..gas mileage could be better but its not really that bad at 29 MPG

Jetta 2.0t — Absolutely love this car to death..its not the fastest car on the road I know that much but the 2.0T engine can hold its own easily against most cars. I traded in my 2007 Accord for this car and I have not one regret. If youre going to get a Jetta get the 2.0T engine because the 2.5 is not even close.
