Love Our Jetta — This is our go to town car. Had it 2 years. Changes the oil, free at dealer, and no trouoble. except for inability to change the clock time this year. Now for a trip to the dealer since it is still in warranty.

Very Happy With Car — Super pleased with economy - I drive mostly highway, mostly 75-80 mph and average over 40 mpg. This is reason I bought the car - as I drive 120 miles to/from work. Great stereo, nice comfort, very happy with ride. Great for trips.

Economical But Fun — This car is a great family car that not only is a hybrid, but has a turbo for times that you need it. No problems, intuitive and great looking. I recommend this car to any small family looking for a good looking car that doesn't kill you at the gas pumps; yet still a lot of fun to drive.

Awesome — I purchase this car when I had a job change and was planning on a 90 plus mile commute each way. That has since changed but we are still glad we have the car. I can go about two weeks (600+ miles) between refuels.

Great car that I have updated to suite my tastes for how much time I spend in the car. Very sleek car

My Favourite Car Yet — Truly the best car I've owned. No break-downs or problems. Ive upgraded the audio to the RCD 510 system and love it. The car drives great and handles really well! The interior is spacious and solid (contrary to domestic cars).

Pros

Excellent bang for the buck sporty sedan, with likely underrated HP (200, but 0-60 in 6.5 sec.). High quality interior. Good handling. Spacious rear seat & trunk. Well-equipped.

Cons

None, really - though the exterior styling could be better overall, mostly in the side & rear view.

Sporty Sedan, Great Bang For The Buck — If you want a great bang-for-the-buck sporty sedan that's quick, handles well and has an excellent interior and driver "office", go no further. This VW GLI outclasses many cars that cost a whole lot more. The 2L turbo engine is likely underrated at 200 HP, since it, with the 6-speed DSG gives 0-60 times of ~6.5 sec., all while delivering up to 37+ highway MPG. The interior is well done, in black with red stitching and a flat-bottom steering wheel with a classic design tops it off. It has all the "bells & whistles", yet the driver interfaces are clean and easy to use. The Fender audio system is excellent. All the controls fall readily to hand, without the complicated & distractive touchscreens found on many new cars. Overall, it's just a great, multipurpose daily driver.

Pros

Nice, clean vehicle.  Good for everyday use.

Cons

4 cylinder doesn't respond as quick as one might like and the car as a whole is very "manual".

Nice, Simple Vehicle For General Use. — I chose the Jetta for the sole purpose of a city car. We needed a car to help get around the city better with the very important consideration of being able to park it. So, we were looking at compact, good gas mileage, yet roomie enough for four and luggage. That is exactly what the Jetta provides. Major bonus comes in the fact that it is well built and sturdy. Complete confidence in its safety.
