2006 Vw Jetta Tdi — This car is a tank! Carries tons of kids and golf clubs! Huge head room inside spacious enough for my 6'4" son. Clean and sleek lines on the outside. Rides great. Excellent diesel mileage 1000 k to the tank. Super fun to drive to the beach with the moon/sun roof and all the windows down! Great pick up with 5 speed stick!

Pros: ride, lines, mileage, quality

Cons: a little diesel noise

Jetta Just Keeps Getting Betta — I love this car, after having spent 2 years with the older JettaIV. Huge improvement over the previous model in fit and finish, handling, turbo lag and interior space. The car has balanced curves, something lacking in most sedans in its class. I have it lowered 1.5" with Eibach springs and Pirelli PZero's, which gives a huge improvement in body roll, turn in and traction for not a lot of money, and without sacrificing ride comfort - don't suffer with the overly high stock ride height and pathetic factory Michelins!

Pros: Minimal turbo lag, gobs of power, 6-speed tranny, interior and exterior styling

Cons: stock ride height, factory tires

2006 Jetta Is A Lemon — Car has been in the shop for various problems 2 times for engine cooling fan failure. 4 times for check engine light ( 4 NOX sensors replaced) all under warranty BUT the inconvenience factor was a pain. 5th time for check engine light along with wiring harness and cooling fan total bill $3000.00 plus. This car qualifies for lemon law!!

Pros: have not found much...styling is what I bought it on

Cons: Consistent repairs I think there are problems with the 2.5l engine but VW will not admit it!!

Safe — One of the safest side impact cars you can get. The TDI gets 40+ MPG so saves you a few bucks. Has TONS of trunk space for those of you that need to go to the store you dont have to take your SUV to fit everything in. And to top it off its diesel so it will last longer than most other cars. The rear seats fold down to fit even more in that trunk of yours. Handling acceleration and braking is good for everyday use, its no race car but who needs one for everyday use? if your looking for that go look at a ferrari.

Pros: Great MPG rating. Not a bad looking car. Trunk space w/ folding down seats to make even more room.

Cons: Wont get a amazing looking car or tons of HP or speed.

I Love My Tdi — Great mileage. Quick pick-up. Fun to drive. Couldn't ask for more out of an economy car. Looks that impress too.

Pros: Sounds sick and different stock. Wow people with your crazy diesel sedan.

Cons: Diesel is $4.20+ a gallon. Fill-ups hurt, but are few and far between.

It Is Sure Fun To Drive! — I enjoy the amount of features that this car boasts for its driver. The Transmission is solid and has six speeds for great top end performance. Its top speed is 130MPH, beat that America with your electronic 100mph limit Well priced for those of us YUPPIES who want a nice car but not a big price tag.

Pros: It is a solid, comfortable, fun, fuel efficient car.

Cons: the 2.5L engine has 150HP on 5 cylinders. I wish it were a little bit more ballsy

Best Sedan Under $23k — Great sedan with excellent build quality. A lot of standard features for the base level model. Handling and steering are excellent for a FWD car. Engine has plenty of torque and adequate horsepower. Manuel transmission features silky smooth shifter and clutch. Interior appointments are top notch and has plenty of room for 5 adults. Trunk is a cavern. Exterior styling could be the cars downside. While the front looks cool and aggressive the rear end looks bland and Toyota Corolla-like. Fuel economy for me is 28mpg over 2.5 years of mixed driving. Overall Best Sedan you can buy under $23,000.

Pros: Great Interior, Manuel Tranny, Fuel-economy, Torquey 5 cylinder

Cons: Bland exterior, little low on horse power
