Pros

Braking, (now) handling, transmission, acceleration.

Cons

Here-and-there electrical problems, acceleration (it IS great for a diesel, but could be faster).

Connie - My '09 Tdi — Overall, the car is real fun to drive--performance is definitely improved with at least a dropped suspension. For the first three years or 36,000mi, you pay nothing for the car except for the modifications and car care products. So far I've had only one major problem (having had the car for 31,000 miles, it doesn't surprise me). The door locks refuse to stay locked while driving, and I'm also having a problem with my rear right door (same thing happened on my 2005.5 Jetta). Not too many people like the appearance of the car, but honestly, it really grows on you and despite its simplicity, in my opinion, it really is a real good looking car, stock or not.

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

Tdi Is The Future Of Fun — VW need to do a better job in marketing the Jetta TDI. It's not all about great gas mileage, even though 36 MPG in mixed driving is nice for commuters. It's about 236 pounds of torque in a 140 horsepower engine. It just doesn't get more fun than that

. — I love about my car the way that it accelerates and sounds when you do accelerate... I love everything about it from its performance, to its looks and its sound system... It is a very fun car to drive and the best part if it is that it has triptonic!!!

Love My V-dubya! — After looking over the rest of the bunch in this class, the TDI offers the best value, and highest performance for the buck. VW touts 47mpg HWY, and 30 City. I've had it just about 30 days now, and with 1,200 miles clocked, the avg. mpg continues to improve daily from the current 33.4 (a/p the read-out). with 236Lbs Feet of Torque, she's peppy enough to keep up with traffic, and make the moves needed on the road. Highly reccomended!

2009 Tdi 6spd — 47 mpg from the all new 50 State Clean Diesel. It was named Green Car of the year over all the hybrids and the "Smart" Car. The car handles great, performance is great for a Diesel. The interior is much more refined than previous models.

Jetta Rules — I would say its the best compact sedan in the world. I am ex owner of Civic 2008 and 2006 CR-V and my circle of friends have corolla. All my folks feel great about Jetta. Jetta is a class of its own
