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.

V-dub Yo Lolz — good all around fun car. lot of trunk space and comfortable to sit in the front. will keep stock and trade in for VW Scirocco lol nothing wrong with the jetta or even the TDI model but come on....50 mph hatch and looks better than the golf. Had high hopes for the Golf R, but the price isnt right. 15,000 for a scirocco sounds way better than 36,000 for a Golf R.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: trunk space and that it was the first VW car i owned.  not gonna lie, im liking volkswagen lol

Cons: feels cramped in the back seat for me

Jetta — Overall a great car- loved it's feel and driving, was very happy with it. Although I prefer an SUV, I have no real complaints about the Jetta at all. The Jetta has power, style and fits pretty much anywhere. For a sedan, it has an unbelievable amount of storage capacity.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I really liked this car as far as a fuel efficient Sedan is concerned. I'm more of a Jeep girl, but was commuting too much to purchase another Jeep when mine died. However, if I had to have a small car for a few years, I'm glad this was the one!

Cons: I didn't like having to put my dog in the back seat, instead of having cargo space for her, but that's no different than any other small sedan.

Better Than Most — I loooooooved this car. But I am a Bimmer fan. The second owner, and took great care of this car using only premium synthetics. Went on two road trips in this, and never ever has had an issue. I also changed out the lights, so those are new too!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, great sound, exterior sound is barely heard, bluetooth - GPS - ipod  video and netflix with cable -

Cons: averages mpg of 24

Well Worth The Investment. — Love getting almost 600 miles on ONE TANK! Acceleration is good thanks to the turbo. Brakes are awesome, stop on a dime, which is good because this car ride smoothly and you will be cruising above the speed limit before you know it. Very little wind noise, handles like a dream in gusting winds too. Lots of leg room in the rear. Fuel miser, low maintenance and fun to drive. Sunroof and premium sound system rock! Your teenager will fight you for he keys!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 44 MPG city, 47-50 MPG hwy

Cons: TDI oil change every 8-10K will run you $65.00

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

I love this car, is very economical and plus it doesn’t have many miles. The only thing I do recommend is to have a lower cost, since it was very used from the inside. Read More
