Awesome Car. — I upgraded from a regular to a diesel for my 2nd car. This car runs well. As my friend put it, "Oooh, diesel power". She has a few nicks and is missing a mirror, but my dad and I are working on her.

Pros: Awesome running car.  Good mileage.  About 50mpg town.

Cons: Needs a/c, passenger mirror, paint touch up, fix hood, get sheetrock screws out of rear of car.

Oil Burning Jetta — This car is simply the most practical car on the market that will exceed 40 MPG. Wonderful German feel and build. Loads of torque from the turbo charged diesel engine. The engine is responsive and the handling feels solid. Plenty of interior space for a mid sized sedan, with a cavernous trunk.

Pros: One of the top MPG of any car on the road, and you don't have to drive in a tiny car.  All the things people love about driving a German car.

Cons: It's a German car.  It is not for anyone who likes to shy away from maintenance.

Too Many Recall Notices. — Wolfsburg has a turbo charger. Dealship kept on refusing that there was something wrong. I've driven other turbo charged vehicles so I know what a lag is. The lag was HUGE and it was not corrected... since about six months into the lease.

Pros: Great when brand new.

Cons: Steep down hill after 6 months.

Beautiful Car, Terrible Reliability - Sadly, Buyer Beware!!! — Absolutely amazing car to drive - tons of fun, great looking, high-quality interior, great handling, and very fast with the VR6 engine and 5-speed. Based on driving experince alone, it's a 5-star car. Durability with this car however, was a nightmare. My Jetta was completely incapable of going 1,000 miles without the "check engine" light coming on and requiring a random repair. The cost of parts and labor are ridiculous, and were the determining factors in selling it after only 1 year of ownership. (The VR6 barely fits in engine bay, causing labor for something simple like an altinator replacement to cost far too much). I hate to say it, but this vehicle has probably turned me off from buying another VW for quite some time.

Pros: Styling, VR6 power, handling,

Cons: Reliability, cost of parts and labor

It's Out Dated — It's been a good reliable car... except when the fuel pump died. Still like Audi much better for comfort and quattro, nothing beats AWD

Pros: Good in the winter with snow tires

Cons: No leather in the Wolfsburg Ed.

Awesome Car! — I have a fully equipped 1.9TDI and I love the acceleration, even if this is not the best. It's easy to make 950kms with about 50liters of diesel even if you drive at 140km/h... (said too much I think :D). The interior is awesome, I like the lighting at night and the heating seats. Leather is good quality and I like very much the 2-way sunroof.

Pros: Fully Economic, Comfortable interior, awesome exterior

Cons: Seems to have some spots of rust, acceleration sometimes not always enough

Wolfsberg Is Where Its At — The Wolfsberg Edition Jetta is exactly what a Jetta should be. A four door sedan with a tight suspension and a monsoon audio system to lure the driver to go on a cruise. Even though the Jetta is front-wheel drive the sport-tuned suspension was toght enough to make it feel sporty.

Pros: Monsoon Audio. BBS rims and a sport-tuned suspension

Cons: Needs a little more omph.

It is the perfect highway car, the smoothness of an American full size, the handling of a European sports sedan, and over 45 mpg on a trip. Read More

Review By Guru9BP6G3

I love this car, is very economical and plus it doesn’t have many miles. The only thing I do recommend is to have a lower cost, since it was very used from the inside. Read More
