    Jetta 2.5 - Good Commuter Car — I'd recommend this car to anyone who's looking for a good commuter or a fun car to drive. Aside from the wheels, the car has not cost me that much in terms of cost of ownership. Some complain of the noise, I'm not.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent gas mileage, fun, comfortable

    Cons: Tires

    Nearly Perfect. — This is a Mk IV Jetta... mine handles very well. Braking is very fast with no fade at all. Cornering is stable and fast. Traction control works extremely well for turning. Acceleration in 1st gear is like most decent cars. In 2nd, the turbo kicks in and the car goes from "I'm a nice little sedan" to "RAWRRRR!". The diesel engine also has plenty of torque at any standard (Under 95 MPH) speed. Passing at any speed is effortless. Hills don't require much of a change in throttle. Even at altitude (8000 feet), the car is frisky and responsive. Build quality is superb. The vents can rattle, but that's about it. It could look better. The black interior seems a bit too serious for a Dub. I'd have preferred tan. Maintenance can be a bit steep, but the car is well made and needs little. Gas mileage has run an average of 47.5 with a low of 42 and a high of 48.5. City to highway is not much of a difference for some reason. This car is GREAT to drive... I've only seen a few that can match it for the price... and nothing touches it with the fuel economy that it has.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Driving dynamics - fuel  economy - build quality

    Cons: buy it, you moron!

    Sweet — well its a volkswagon so engine lights on so get it under warranty, but the handling and engine power is exceptional! i would like the sound of the speakers a little better but they are pretty good. it is a very fun car and sleek looking car.

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

    Pros: comfortable, quick get up

    Cons: a lot of little creaks and squeaks and speakers are good at first but die out after a while

    The Only Thing I'd Change About It Is Put A 1.8t Tiptronic In It. That's It. — Everything. Comfortable OEM interior, drives nice, beautiful color, get compliments all the time on color, great gas mileage, cheap to own, for the most part. Learn to do repairs yourself. it's more fun that way. Over all, A++++. <3 Volkswagen.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas mileage, looks, daily commute, student car

    Cons: No turbo. :[ But that's the only reason.

    Super Car And Great To Drive. Perfect For Anyone — Great performance even though I drove the 1.6. It has great comfort. Super smooth on the roads. Car is pricy at first and value drops quick on it. the car has good handling but it is too far off the ground making it at times felling as though you are driving a 4X4 lol

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great all-round car

    Cons: Lack of gadjets

    Jetta Gli Lovers — I will own this car for ever. Geat acceleration stops on a dime, sweet handling. I have not spent a penny on repairs with 37000 miles on her. The 1.8t GLI package only came out in 2004 and 2005 and it's the best looking Jetta ever built.

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

    Pros: Performance and styling

    Cons: That I want to drive it all the time instead of my truck

    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

    I Love My Gli — Its amazing.Its pretty quick off the line and always turns heads. Got a few aftermarket parts on it. the only thing that sucks about it is that the parts for it such as tires,sensors, etc, are expensive as hell. It could have a bigger turbo, but other than that its amazing.....

    Pros: Power,Looks,Customizations, basically everything

    Cons: Slight turbo lag, small turbo.
