Nice Car. Nice Feel. Worth A Drive At Least — good acceleration. with a good stock 7 speaker Bose sound system. 6 speed tranny is very smooth and goes well with the torquey 200 hp vr6 engine. good engine noise. nice sharp look and beautiful leather interior and gauge panel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: torque curve has a nice feeling. and driveability

Cons: expense of car and repairs

04 Jetta Tdi Recommendation--overall Good — The only issue I have is the way it starts in cold weather when it is not plugged in. When plugged in it starts great. It is a hoot to drive and handles very well for a small car. Surprising

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel mileage

Cons: Cold weather starting

Why Doesn't Everyone Own A Vw Diesel? — '04 TDI Sport only 1500 were ever made... and for Canada only. 1200 klms per tank... Sweeeeet! Has a GTI interior! I can't believe how much I enjoy driving this car. I can go from St. John's to Corner Brook and back to Gander before I need to get fuel!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Build quality and economy

Cons: Needs more space in the back seat area

Balls Out Car That Is Fun To Drive. — Balls out car that is fun to drive. The 5 speed manual transmission makes driving an enjoyable experience everytime. Responds great on the road, driven 80k miles on it and still no problems. Did i mention it looks slick too?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas mileage, fun to drive.

Cons: Might not be fast enough for some.

Not Your Average Vdub. — I'm reviewing my personal Jetta, not the one you would go pick up at uncle Joe's discount auto emporium. Mine was decidedly quick for a 1.8 liter engine. Granted there was over $12,000 stuck into the car. 0-60 mph times generally fell into the 4.5 - 5.0 second range and top speed was GPS verified, but its very incriminating. Handling wasn't top notch, but it would have outmaneuvered (and did) your average riced out fart can mobile. Want my advice for tuning a Jetta to 325-375 bhp? Take it to unitronic, spend money, work late nights and many hours, finish off with cams, fully custom exhaust, and a dyno tune and you're good to go. What was done to the motor will forever be mine and Mike L. of Unitronic's secret.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Acceleration, radius cornering, sound (in car and exhaust).

Cons: Everything is expensive, fuel injectors will give out after cold air intake and muffler, NEEDS BIGGER BRAKES

Worth The Money! — I'm really diggin this car. The build quality is awesome! out of all my cars over the years This one tops them all. hell it even has 4 doors so I can haul my daughters around in it! Plus with a little more $ (besides what I've put in it so far) it'll be fast and sexier than a majority of the cars on the road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power, Bucket racing seats and a kick ass factory stereo.

Cons: If you aren't a car nut you won't appreciate it.

Overall:

The Car Is Only As Good As The Driver Wants It To Be. — For being a stock car, it has some potential. The acceleration is decent, but because of the turbo it obviously has it's ups and downs. Really there is no problems mechanically. Suspension is tight, as it should be. Interior and exterior is both good for style, but I will have to say it is not made for truly carrying 4 people. usually just two. You can fit 4 but it's not a very comfortable ride for them. Cost of ownership is all dependent on the driver and how much he is willing to spend. Cost of gas is higher for me because I only use premium or equivalent to 91+ Octane. Maintenance is normal probably a little more for me because I clean(wash, and vacuum pretty much every week, and wax once a month) it more than the normal driver. Overall it's a pretty fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a fun little car that is good on the eyes and can hang with it's fair share of other cars for having a small engine.

Cons: Turbo lag. If you aren't going to put the money into the car and complain about it, don't get the car.
