Great — Love this car, it's very nice! It is quiet, very smooth. It definitely rides better than my last car, but not much competition there.. I hope to have it for a long long time. Still I miss my Neon, but damn, this car is HOT!

Pros: quality

Cons: it has some miles on it but really no big deal comparing to how long they last

05 Tdi Jetta Vw — This is the diesel model, which is quiet and odorless, unless I use bio, and then it generally smells like french fries. I bought it with 10,000 miles, and have put on 45,000 so far. The car gets amazing fuel mileage, over 50 mpg on the highway and rarely under 35 in town! I have no clue why Americans are anti-diesel, but it's about time to get over it. The car is so far advanced in emissions it doesn't even register at the DEQ. It isn't a speed demon, but easily gets up to high speeds on cross country travel. Maintenance cost is minimal, I've only ever changed oils and filters. Stock tires are loud, but when replaced with quality Yokohamas the entire ride got way better and quieter. One problem with the trunk remote was replaced under warranty. Only problem I see is that they are very difficult to find, new or used, as they are in such high demand.

Pros: bodacious fuel mileage

Cons: comes with noisy michelin tires

Kistlers First Car And Never Agian — the car is ok could be better mine is a 5 speed Manual which is nice. The inside is banging nice sound system, black leather is sweet. The outside looks like ass. The handling is nice for a front wheel drive car it hugs turns well. that is really the only good thing it is slow as hell and has no power

Pros: nice inside, good suspension,sound system great

Cons: almost everything else

800 Km A Tank In The City - 1100-1200 Km A Tank On The Highway....nuff Said — Great commuter car. Great fuel economy. Unfortuneatley the room inside is rather economical. Good car for what it is....

Pros: fuel economy

Fantastic Value — I know.... Jetta: Girl's Car. Not true. This Car has a polished Five Cylinder and a slick manual Trans. The Interior is second to none and the handling is on par with anything in the compact front drive category.

Pros: Power, Transmission, Handling, Interior,6 CD player, Volkswagen quality throughout, Gas Mileage

Cons: None so Far.

Silver W/ Gray, 5sp, Power Everything, 50000 Mi. — Gets spectacular fuel economy (about 49 average -- and this is my calculation, not the dumbass on board calculator). Arguably the economy is not much better than a 40mpg gas car, however, given the about 20-30% premium on diesel, but still great. 700 miles per tank without blinking.

Pros: Read the review.

Cons: Eats fuel when accelerating, so you can't accelerate quickly without taking a hit, but with the turbo, it certainly has the pep if you need it.  It does have that diesel hesitation on shifting however, but you get used to it.  Great car.
