Classic With A Bit Performance Under The Hood And The Vw Logo On The Front — The Jetta Wolfsburg edition has the 1.8T motor 180hp a sport interior, modified suspension, dual tip muffler and 16 in. BBS mag. The interior is great! Seat are comfortable and firm (heated also!!) with good lateral support. The three spokes stearing whee is adjustable in both direction and l the general feeling is feels like quality. Motor: I like when you press a bit more on the gas and you hear the turbo. The direction and suspension are tipically german so you always feel safe when cornering.

Pros: 1.8T, handling, front seats

Cons: back seat, VW reliability repututaion...

A Very Friendly German Car — The ride is fantastic, gear shifts are smooth, initial acceleration isn't too great but readily picks up from 2nd gear. Effortlessly speedy on overdrive and cruise. Interiors are not extravagant but suited for a comfortable 4 people ride.

Pros: When you are inching to stop at a stop sign and feel you are clear, the 2nd shift just powers the vehicle zoooooooom....it's super amazing (you can feel the 2.0l 4-cyl working efficiently). It gives a mileage of ~26mpg.

Cons: Dollar guzzler when it comes to maintenance, and the not so great initial acceleration...what can you expect with a 2.0 liter 4-cyl engine generating ~160hp.

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.

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

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.
