Jetta Gls Tdi — I love the fact that I can drive anywhere from 800 to 1200 km (depending on my lead foot) on a single tank of diesel. And the torque coming from this little thing is amazing! I have alot of work to do appearence and performance wise still, but it's a work in progress. This car has seen everything from class city commute driving, to gridlock, to interstates all across america and highways all across Canada, it has even seen a fair deal of offroading all across Alberta to get to rig sites. Let's put it this way: i put a skid plate on it to go some of the places that I've taken it, and it still runs like a dream!

Pros: Amazingly fun to drive!

Cons: Aftermarket products for it are quite expensive

Good Little Car — I should have bought a turbo, but other than that I love it! It carries my golf clubs & rescued cats just fine. It gets 30mpg on average. Solid car. I bought it with only 9k miles and a year later I've put over 18k on it. I've hauled camping equipment through the Adirondacks with the A/C full blast; she still pulls up the hill just fine.

Pros: 30 MPG, Roomy, Leg Room, zippy

Cons: No turbo, no sun roof

47 To 51 Mpg And Will Do 100 Mph Easily — Great all around car. The perfect balance between economy and performance. This car really needs to be a 6 speed. Engine is powerful enough to red line in 5th gear at 130 MPH. Very smooth ride. Forget ever getting a hybrid get a TDI. Very reliable and fun to drive. Very easy to forget that it is only 100 horse power.

Pros: Awsome amout of torque

Cons: Not to much Horse power

Vw Jetta Gls — Well this is the second Jetta I have owned. Thats why I bought it. I love this one more though. Looks better and even though it is the same model (2.0 gls) as the last one it seems nicer on the inside. Only problem with it is the stock horsepower. It needs more of it. I will be working on that in the near future.

Pros: VW reliablity, good MPG,

Cons: had to excercise the warrenty within 6 weeks for a check engine light and EPC light

Jetta — I love my volkswagen jetta. I have a 1.8L Turbo, just enough power to have fun! I love having a car with a little pick up and go. This car has great handling around turns where other cars I have driver sucked.

Pros: Just enough power to have fun

Cons: Premium gas is expensive.

My Favorite Car — I know people love or hate volkswagen. I loved mine. Maybe I just got rid of it before it caused problems...

Pros: Cute as can be...beat almost anyone off the line...handles well in New England's uncertain weather...

Cons: Tight with carseats in the back seat!  No reasonable-sized adult will be comfy in the back...I'm 5'3" and was crowded with my 6" husband driving.

2004 Vw Jetta — Overall the car isn't that bad it has a few ups and downs to it but its a great start off car...the manual version of the Jetta is an easily way to learn how to drive stick...the clutch is soft and short and the gear ratios aren't that bad...The car has too much body roll at stock height so watch out on how fast your going.

Pros: -Gas-Saver ( if not going over 75)
-Good mid-size sedan
-Overall speed is good (127 mph)
-Great stock sound system if upgraded to Monsoon

Cons: -Too much body roll even at stock height
-Acceleration lags on the manuals
-Car parts are sometimes expensive (EDM)
-The cars just too slow even if it was the 1.8T (Upgrade to bigger turbo and BOV)
