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
