Never saw this car in person and cannot understand why I am receiving this review request. I will add that some of these vehicles are well over priced for their age and mileage.

Overall:

I b and bought a VW Jetta TDI new in 2006 and kept it for 14 years. The thing I liked best about the car was the incredible fuel economy. I averaged 44 miles per gallon and could go 600 miles between fill ups. The things I liked the least were the expensive repairs due to the fact thats its a foreign car. There were some things that failed just after the warranty expired that were particularly aggravating such as the trunk latch failing, door wiring harness failure and a few other things . The attitude of the VW dealerships is also an issue with me . It feels like they think its a real privilege for them to take the time to work on your car. The seats were not comfortable and the car is hard to get in and out of, keeping in mind from the standpoint of someone who is 73 years old and has arthritis. Not good on long trips. Im thinking of buying another one just for the great mileage and learning to live with the other issues.

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

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.

It is the perfect highway car, the smoothness of an American full size, the handling of a European sports sedan, and over 45 mpg on a trip. Read More
