Overall:

Great German Engineering At An Affordable Price. — I bought the car new in May 2006. I now have 185,000 kms on it and I have not had a single repair other that routine maintenance. I have replaced a few bulbs, the serpentine belt at 150,000 kms and rear brakes at 95,000 kms. The front brakes are still original and have 1/4" of pad left. The car is still as tight as the day I drove it off the dealer lot. I would not change one thing on this car. I get an average 1,000 kms per tank (55 litre). The original Bridgestone tires lasted 92,000 kms and I switched to Nokian WRG2 that now have 93,000 kms. They are due for replacement this fall. These are winter tires that you drive all year long so I don't have to have a second set. This is by far the best car I have ever owned and I am planning to keep it as long as I can. The VW mechanics all say that it is now just "broken-in" and I believe them.

Pros: Tight as a drum at 185,000 kms, excellent handling, reliable, comfortable, economical and safe.

Cons: Nothing

"just snazzier, it is also bigger"
Value Ranked 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi Sedan FWD better.
"starts better, the electrical components are better, but that could be a fluke if someone had messed with the -06 jetta. Jettas do not handle any electrical change well.. friends of ours changed the radio and the electrical never seemed to work as well."
