    Overall The Car Is Good And Reliable — I like driving my car and have had it for 5 years, it is a low maintenance car compared to an Audi or a Bmw. It has good pick up and power. It looks stylish and I like the interior trim and design of my car. The car has very nice body style and has great handling and pickup. The leather and interior trim cosmetics are very cheaply made, so they wear out pretty fast.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It looks stylish and has good power and pickup

    Cons: it has very little legroom in the back seats and has very cheap cosmetics.  The plastic button wear out very fast.

    Sporty, Economical, And Comfortable — Great reliable car, never let me down when I needed it. Inexpensive to service and I save money on gas mileage. Relaxing car to drive but still sporty enough to be fun. Braking and acceleration were nothing special but adequate and the handling was very good.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looks, comfortable ride, good gas mileage

    Cons: no heated seats

    Awesome First Car! — I got this as my very first car. It's been reliable, except you need to bring an extra oil can inside your trunk. The turbo will burn your oil. The trunk is very practical and one of the best for the size. DSG Transmission and Pedal Shift is a must!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It has a very responsive engines

    Cons: Oil burnt, due to turbo

    Great Car To Own! — I've had this car for 100,000 kms and it's been good. I've lost a turbo and clutch but I've also had a few different drivers on this car. Maintenance can be costly but I've noticed that I have fewer repairs that need to be done. I've transitioned this car to my son now because I do trust it. Keep up the maintenance and it's wonderful.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handling, mileage, comfort.

    Cons: Repairs can be expensive, finding a decent mechanic.

    Awesome — I loved this car!! When clean, it still looks like new, 8 years later? The only issue I have ever had is that it sounds like a truck because it is a diesel. In fact, sometimes people comment on the engine not knowing about diesels...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks great, drives great, gas mileage great!

    Cons: Diesels make noise

    Attractive, Efficient, Fun — The efficiency was as tested or better on long road trips, we found the seats to be comfortable, and the vehicle to be very responsive to the driver steering or asking for more power, especially in a situation like at speed accelerating to pass a car. Definitely has some get-up-and-go. We rarely experienced any lag in power. All in all a car we would buy again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It has a HUGE boot!  Honest to goodness I have been so impressed by the cargo capacity.  It's a crazy-large trunk. Comfy front seats.

    Cons: Not quite enough room for a 6'4" man in front and a rear facing carseat in the back on the same side of the Jetta.  The rear-facing carseat we owned did not fit in the middle of the back either.

    Great Car For Drivers — I have owned this car for three years after purchasing used. It has been reliable and low cost to own. Currently needs a Dual Mass Flywheel replaced. The recall for this issue skipped this particular vehicle as it was a 2007 model but sold/acknowledged as a 2006. I would buy another.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome car.  Built well and incredible mileage.  Comfortable with all amenities.

    Cons: Pricey to buy.

    Fun Car To Drive — One of my favorite drives (which I've owned) of all time. It's quick and very responsive. Loads of trunk space and ample cabin room. I have never changed so many light bulbs on a car ever. Every once in a while a bunch will burn out one right after another and then stop for a couple of months then start burning out one by one all over again.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Big trunk, motor has a lot of torque.

    Cons: Wish it was better on gas. Likes to eat light bulbs.

    Pros: Unique look, turbo rush, smooth acceleration, great transmission, awesome brakes, HID headlamps
