    Good Handling, "peppy" Engine, Good Seats, Resonable Gas Economy — Bought the car for my wife in '03. She really likes the size and agility. It changed my mind about what could be done with a four cylinder engine. I'm still a little doubtful about the long term durability. Problems with the BBS wheels - appears to be corroding 2 of the 4 wheels - clear coated? simple repaint?

    A Workhorse With European Flair. — Soft, compliant suspension mated with direct, communicative steering make this an easy day in day out driver. 4 Cyl. engine is good with low end grunt but lacks power for truly aggressive driving. Clutch is easy, light, with long pedal travel and sometimes vague shifter. An economy car with luxury intentions, the interior suprises with excellent detail, build quality, and simplicity. Car is very quiet, smooth, and dependable, allowing for long highway trips that are neither arduous nor painful. Although day to day driving is truly easy in this car, sporty driving is not to be had with the GLS model. The balence is on commuting, not on sporting.

    Pros: Quiet, well planned interior. Stylish interior, exterior with excellent build quality. Simplicity, excellent gas mileage from the engine with adequate power. Manual transmission is a must.

    Cons: Interior is too small for large people in the back seat. Engine, suspension lack sporting ambitions.

    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.

    Impressive Acceleration — In the time I owned this car, I had fun with it, its pretty fast for only a 1.8 engine.. got me in pleanty of trouble, (sound violations, speeding, ect.)

    Pros: great acceleration, good gas mileage, low maintance,good braking, excellent handling

    Cons: premium fuel, synthetic oil changes, eats up front tire tread quick
