It Is My Baby!! My Next Car Will Be A Volkswagen — This was probably one of the best investments I have made so far. My Jetta is amazing. It handles well, looks good, and its fast.

Pros: Sporty, cute, lots of room on the inside, fast, smooth

Cons: A little low to the ground

Good Car But Expensive For That Kind Of Car — Yes, once I had the bad Idea to leave Volvo for Volkswagen, It was nice to work there but I really don't like the cars that much. No value for money, bad seats, engine makes a lot of noice... it was reliable and the acceleration was ok but the handling wasn't great, brakes neither...

Barely Filled It Up — Sold it because im waiting for the one with bigger horsepower, slow acceleration, but overall the car was mint.. sold it for more then i paid was a great first car, wished i never sold it to tell you the truth.. no problems ever occurred except for a wheel bearing which had to be replaced due to the rims, nothing more

Pros: Great on gas no complaints

Cons: Slow acceleration

Very Fuel Efficient And Solid, Torquey, Great Suspension, Slowww. — This car got 40 miles per gallon combined city-highway on a bad day. On a good day it got 45 mpg. It was awesome and fun to drive, it loved curves in the road. I put 40,000 miles on mine and traded it for an Audi A3. It's too bad the current TDI only has 105 HP...

Pros: GREAT mileage, fun, relatively good looking

Cons: Slow, somewhat not smooth 5-speed manual, headlights ugly

For What It Is, Its A Pretty Sweet Car. — VW Jettas were never meant to be race cars, so i guess it shouldn't really be reviewed like one. However, it does give you a pretty good sense of performance, particularly when you first drive it. The main thing you notice when driving the car is that you barely feel speed. You can literally be doing 90 mph and feel like you are doing 55. Acceleration is by no means blistering, but it is relatively quick and won't get you into any hairy situations trying to merge into traffic. The car is very comfortable for a tiny vehicle, and while the suspension is stiff enough to keep the car from rolling through turns, it is not so bad that your back hurts after a drive to school. Overall I think this is a great car.

Pros: Good acceleration, nice feeling at high speeds, decent fuel economy, very safe in an accident

Cons: The VW dealerships are ridiculous as far as service goes

I Love It! — I'm a sucker for the VW, but this would have to be my favourite so far. I love the economy of the diesel. I generally fill up once every 4 - 6 weeks.

Pros: It can go fast, but I still drive it like a granny!

Cons: Turbo lag

A Beauty To Drive And Own. — Fast, drives very good. Computer chip changes the gear very fast. I got the car with 18K original miles and not it has little over 41K miles. All service done at Hillside Imports. It's where the car was originally done at. It also has an ipod dock as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the car. Real head turner, to be honest.

Cons: Really no cons on this car.

Great Car — this car is great.Rides very comfy. The only thing that is a dislike is the vibration as you engage and disengage the clutch. I have just installed a set of michelin x ice snow tires!!!! this car is really quite fun to drive and handles very good. The coolest thing is when you turn your lights on at night the display is great!!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: quality and fuel

Cons: nothing
