Zippy Little Commuter — I like the the pickup and quick response. It does good on gas and has good power.. Down fall is the amount of dealer specific items. Coolant, powersteering fluid,... Overall it's a good car and really have no complaints other than the back seat.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Zippy little car

Cons: Not much backseat room

Excellent Car For Small Family Or A Single Person — I like the Jettas ability to respond to your reflexes. It has great pick up and speed. The cruise control is great and saves on gas. It is stylish and really fun to drive. A lot of trunk space and multiple cup holders.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great on gas mileage

Cons: Back seat a little tight

Love It. — It would coast for mile and more up to stop signs out in the rural country, it was a challenge to guess when to start coasting so as to save fuel and not overshoot and have to lay on the brakes. Using brakes is totally wasted energy if not a hybrid car with regenerative brakes putting some charge back in a battery.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Stereo, dash lights, extreme German attention to the smallest of details, 42 to 50 mpg's all the time, with turbo, not neck breaking, but plenty of grunt and go diesel power, don't even have to down shift from 5th gear to pass.

Cons: Too little front legroom, not enough cabin heat from a diesel, had idea after 100,ooo miles, repair costs were going to climb, but depreciation of a diesel is SO low, just trade up to new one, keep factory warranty.

Never Buy A Jetta — I purchased this car for $13k in 2006 and have since spent $10k in upkeep other than scheduled maintenance. You tell me if that is a good deal. I should have bought a car that didn't cost $1k every time it needed a repair.

Pros: Good looking car.

Cons: Continues to have electrical and transmission issues.

Quick Car Chicks Dig It. Turbo, Intake, Coil Overs, Blow Off Valve 17 Inch Alloys — Has been good to me for several years and now that it is paid off I'm starting to have all kinds of issues. Nothing too serious yet. Thank god. Having a little trouble getting it on the road now because I am doing all the work myself. Do not have the money to bring it to a shop at the moment and certainly don't want to pay for a tow to bring it down the street. We shall see...

Pros: Basically had no problems from when I bought it six years ago (43,000 miles) to recently (105,000 miles). Quick nice looking car with above average gas mileage.

Cons: Ever since since I hit 100,000 miles I have been having multiple problems compared to barely any through 6 years.

Cute, Sporty, And Fun! — All around good car for a first car. Its definitely a girly car because of the pink lights on the inside and outside. Awesome touchscreen slide out stereo. Tons of power and tons of fun to drive! And its the perfect size!

Pros: Cute, small little car. Loved all the power it gives. Very fun to drive.

Cons: Fixing it was hard because its a foreign car. Parts cost alot more.

Great Commuter Car! — This car is a great commuter that gets 38 MPG combined driving, and about 42-44 highway driving. I love the spacious trunk and room in the front seats. The back seats a kind of small for room but it is not a full size sedan so I don't expect to fit 3 grown adults back there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Economy

Cons: smallish back seat, and lacking some options
