    Fell In Love The First Time I Heard It Started! — Had to go to Indiana for ths one -- no black/black with leather available. Felt great driving a stick-shift again...probably miss this VW more than any other.

    Pros: Understated.

    Cons: It was  MkIV.

    Cheap On Gas. — Car is a little small, but everything else makes up for it. The trunk is a good size, but the opening isn't. The backseat legroom is non existant for adults, and the headroom in the back isn't very good either.

    Pros: Excellent quality, very reliable. Cheap on gas, comfortable to drive. Rides great!!!

    Cons: A little small.

    2003 Jetta Gll 2.8 Vr6 — It is a sleeper. The car does not have too much to show that is is a six speed v6. Very peppy acceleration. It is a fun day to day car with a little sport to it: sport rims, sport seats, sun roof, exhaust tips etc.

    Pros: A very quick sleeper jetta.  A lot of unexpected power.

    Cons: Not the flashiest of cars.

    I Call Her Zoe. All Volkswagens Need A Name. She's Been With Me Through Thick And Thin. — The nicest part about the VW Jetta is its reliability. I've had to fix a few minor things in the course of our 5 year relationship, and most of those due to I uncerimoniously and rudely decided to get into an accident (whups) and destroyed the entire oil system. She's a beaut, tho, despite how hard I drive her she never says no and always treats me well. I love my car.

    Pros: MPG, handling, fit & finish, looks, driving comfort (I own a manual 5 speed), cargo capacity, reliability

    Cons: Upkeep is a bit on the expensive side because she is an import, after all...

    My First Vw — A good car overall. Small engine for the size of car but turbo makes a difference. 180hp, good acceleration, the interior is very nice, the factory Monsoon stereo is great so are the heated seats

    Pros: VW, definetly built for drivers

    Cons: maintenance is a must, as long as you keep up with oil changes and premium gas, your are good to go. Parts are expensive

    2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi Review

    It Is To Tdi For.. — I had the opportunity to drive this vehicle from Johannesburg down to Cape Town, and back in December 2006. We had a fully loaded boot, with a trailer. The nice part is, that this TDI might only have about 80KW of power, but the amount of torque is upped, due to the diesel engine. It easily cruises in the drive gear, and passing traffic only requires planting of the right foot. I also love the interior styling, and attention to detail. All in all, a nice car.

    Pros: Bieng a diesel it can easily travel 900km on a tank.

    Cons: Service intervals at each 15000Km is a bit annoying.

    This Si A Very Nice Car! — I had an 02 Golf 2 Dr TDI, this car i miss because of the versatility of the wagon. The Jetta has better acceleration and about the same economy.

    Pros: Fuel mileage is great, Great looking car, great for 2 people on long trips, with luggage

    Cons: Expensive services, 0 leg room for rear passengers honda civic has more leg room in the back than this car.
