Love this car-mileage is awesome great fuel economy

Not fun to ride in on long trip with entire family! Does not do well in deep snow--no brainer but I need something I can get to work in regardless of weather

2011 Vw Tdi — Loved this car, sold it to our 19 yo daughter--she wanted a 350Z but was unable to get a loan and feel this is a blessing in disguise-this car is much safer in my opinion. This car has a surprising amount of Leg room in the back my son 6'3" does not have a problem as long as the front seat is not pushed all the way back and the trunk is huge. The only drawback was that I did not like riding in it on a cross country vacation--felt to closed in and got it stuck in our driveway last winter.

Great car and plenty of pick. Inline 5 cyc engine is great. Fuel economy is good not as great as others in the same price but they sacrifice power.

Cons

Pricey maintenance

Great Car For Most People — 2011 Jetta does lots of things well. Good on fuel economy, looks great, handles better and has a surprisingly spacious interior. I am 6'2 and am comfortable driving the car. The trunk is also a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

Pros

Nice modern look, with large interior. rear seats are very comfortable.
HUGE trunk, furl economy is around 30MpG, which isn't bad at all for a 2.5 liters.
All in all a great family car, good for long distance, too.

Cons

Cheaply made. My 2007 rabit is WAY better quality.
No temperature gauge? Seriously, VW?

Nice Sedan. Powerful And Roomy, Saddened By Cheap Construction. — First of all: I love my Jetta. Nice 2.5 liters engine, with MANUAL (YAY!) transmission is an absolute joy to drive. The overall quality of the car is, however, lower than the other car I drive (2007 VW Rabbit 2.5), which has many features that the Jetta doesn't have anymore. Rear vents, for example, or a temperature gauge (this was a cheap move, VW). The iPod connection is not in the center armrest with a docking station, anymore. Now it's only a cable dangling in the glove compartment, and the iPod rocks left and right with the turns. Result? I don't use it anymore. So, if you can get over the flaws due to a cheaper construction (VW had to kep costs down) and are willing to make some compromises, the Jetta is a great car. Though, with a few more bucks, it could have been a FANTASTIC car, just like the old one was.

Fuel economy could be better

Fun And Practical At Once. — The signature Volkswagen vehicle, the Jetta is a lot of fun to drive. It handles spectacularly for a sedan, and the CVT engine makes for a unique driving experience. The interior room is decent, the sound system is engaging, and overall this is a good choice as a primary or secondary vehicle.

Pros

Excellent fuel consumption, almost no costs except for the car's cost, comfortable for long drives, handles well on the highway, small enough to easily fit into any parking spaces.

Cons

The backseat is not very big so it is hard for long road trips seated in the backseat.

A Reliable Car Prepared For Any Obstacle. — Overall the car has the best bang for your buck than any car on the market because of the long list of pros. Additionally, the vehicle is able to perform with the utility of a much larger car because it has a spacious trunk that is able to hold any size object.

Pros

I chose this vehicle because of the aggressive look.  The reliability of VW in my experience of my wife owning three since we started dating is fantastic!  The fuel economy is outstanding!  37.89 miles per gallon on a recent trip from Mass. to Manhattan back to Boston on 1 $41 fill up.  Tons of leg room in the back.  Tons of trunk space.  Great in the snow!

Cons

A bit uncomfortable on long trips as the driver only.

Excellent! I Would Purchase This Vehicle Again. — Fuel economy is awesome! Up front comfort is lacking. Lots of leg room for all passengers, especially in the rear. The car looks great, aggressive styling gives it a sporty look. DIY's will appreciate the ease of maintenance. I feel very safe traveling with my family aboard.

I Love This Car — Great choice, wish I could keep it around. Too bad I need a truck. The interior is great and the entertainment center is top notch. I have been in a few cars and this one is one of my favorites.

Vw Jetta Sel Sport — This car had a great sleek, sport appearance and is great fun to drive. The acceleration is good because it's a manual transmission and you can control the shifting (unlike the automatic, which I thought had a great deal of hesitation). The Sport package has a sport suspension which allows for good manueverability without thinking you are going to dump it on it's side if you need to make a quick move. I have always felt 100% safe in this car - airbags everywhere, braking is good, and excellent handling. We live off a windy road in the Black Hills of South Dakota, and it's great for the terrain and weather here.
