    All Around Love It! — I have had no issues with my car. I have had it for almost 5 years. Starting to make a funny noise now but hope to get checked out soon and hopefully there is no major issue. The car is a great little commuter. It has a lot of space and I've traveled alot in it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Look, feel, reliable.

    Cons: headlight keeps going out...

    Nice Family Car — Good looking car, very roomy and tons of cargo room. Handling and braking is superb for the price, though the Euro suspension would be a welcome upgrade. Gas mileage is decent, about 25mpg highway. Very torquey engine low to midrange, though upper RPM band is lackluster. Maintenance isn't *too* bad, though I don't like having to remove the plastic fairing under the engine to change my oil. TPMS system doesn't always work right either. Heated seats are a definate plus.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent fuel mileage

    Cons: A bit expensive for the overall package

    First Car I Ever Purchased, I'm In Love With It! — This is the first car I bought, my parents had given me a 2000 Acura TL when I was 16 and that thing lasted me forever. Im 21 now, and my Acura died so I needed to find a new car, came across my VW Jetta Wolfsburg edition at a used car dealer and immediately fell in love with it. I purchased a silver automatic one with 35,500 miles on it for about $15,000 which is actually a really great deal. There were very few imperfections inside and out. I love the way it drives it's definitely a fun car to drive and its very spacious for a small sedan. Definitely made a good choice when it came to buying a VW.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice looking car, fun to drive, does pretty good on gas, comfy interior.

    Cons: Not so good in the snow, very loud car

    2007 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review

    Un-pimp Ze Auto — The GLI is a great daily driver for an enthusiast that is in the market for a sporty import four door sedan. If you've driven an EVO or WRX and didn't care for either, give this a try. The performance bar is lower, but the overall package is refined to a much higher standard. For example, the brakes are a little soft on initial application although they do just fine in daily commuting. I ran the car at Southwest International Raceway, Tucson AZ, several times last year and my best back to back 1/4 mile passes were 14.9@ 97MPH (uncorrected for DA), so the car feels quick, but not fast, certainly not in EVO territory. In daily driving applications the car comes into it's own. The steering is direct and quick. The handling/balance is very good for a sporty car based on entry level roots. It really hugs the corners, but does understeer at the limit due to it's FWD configuration and weight. However at 7-10ths it feels right. My highway MPG is 34-37 MPG...around town MPG really depends on your driving style. On dependability I recommend the extended warranty. My GLI has has had the following parts replaced under warranty; radio, AC compressor, MAF sensor...twice, side airbag sensor, trunk lid struts, fuel pump, and the check engine light came on twice last month only to go off all by itself. Bottom line...it's a fun and quick car with a GREAT interior, love the seats and flat bottom steering wheel, but it does suffer from typical VW build quality and slightly underpowered engines.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The GLI is fun in a practical package.

    Cons: It has only 39K miles, but has spent more time in the shop than I'd care to admit.

    Great Reliable Car With Nice Features. — Very nice little car with surprisingly good performance. It does look a little generic but it still looks pretty sharp. The interior feels like it's been lifted from a more expensive car and I've never had any issues with it!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent build quality, reliable, fun Tiptronic transmission, good performance

    Cons: So-so fuel economy, slightly confusing controls

    I Love It And Would Buy Another In A New York Minute. — The only "complaint" I have about this car is that it is a little slow from start. It seems like the power hits in third gear. Other than that it's well built with great fit and finish. Everything is where it should be and works perfectly. Gas mileage is excellent and luggage space is abundant. I love the sharp, sporty look. It's fun to drive and a blast in the corners.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: A little slow off the line.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Full efficient, fun to drive

    Volkswagen Has Got Me Sold. I'd Buy Another One In An Instant. — - My 2007 Volkswagen Jetta may be a base model, but it is definitely not a penalty box. It really is a great car and I'm glad I purchased it. I'll admit that Volkswagen wasn't even on my list. I was looking for American cars but on my way to a Chevy dealership I happened to see a Volkswagen dealership and decided to stop in. The dealer put me in a black Jetta with a 5-speed manual and only 31,000 on the odometer. I drove it for 5 minutes and immediately fell in love with the car. Performance is totally respectable for that 2.5L 5-cylinder motor under the hood. The car only makes 150 hp but it definitely feels much more powerful. I can do wild and crazy burnouts with both wheels spinning on command. Its engine noise is very different but sounds great. Gas mileage is also totally respectable. I'm averaging around 20 mpg in the city (my driving style is spirited so that's pretty good) and I get about 33 mpg on the highway at a steady 85 mph. The ride is a little stiff but it's supple enough to not be punishing. That stiff ride makes the car handle beautifully. The steering is practically telepathic and is weighted nicely. The 5-speed manual transmission feels great. The shifter feels great in the hand and feels good as you row through the gears. The clutch is a little bit tall for my liking but the pedal take-up is light and linear. The brakes perform and feel better than the brakes in my grandfather's BMW 328xi sedan. The styling of the exterior is handsome but a bit plain. Since my car is the base model it comes with 15-inch steel wheels with hubcaps which are boring but don't look too bad. I love the turn signal repeaters on the side view mirrors but I could do without the factory rear spoiler. The interior is very attractive with high quality materials. The blue and red backlit controls and gauges look great and the 10 speaker AM/FM stereo with a CD player and auxiliary input jack is loud with crystal-clear sound. The front seats have plenty of adjustment and the steering wheel both tilts and telescopes allowing anyone to get comfortable but some of the adjustments are awkward to reach. The car has plenty of headroom and legroom front and rear although hip room is a little tight since it's such a narrow car. This car must have been designed with performance in mind because the seats are incredibly comfortable and have tons of lateral support making them awesome for drives down my favorite twisty roads. The trunk is massive and the car won't tire you out over long distances making it a great road trip car. With regard to the interior my biggest complaint is the lack of rear cup holders. In order to get rear cup holders you must order the car with the rear center armrest. This is a major oversight in my opinion. I've never even heard of another car with upholders being optional. Cup holders are also really important for me because I'm always driving friends around and my rear passengers need them. So far the cost of ownership has been cheap, although I've only had the car for 2 months and 4,000 miles. The only thing I've had to put money into was gas. It’s just a rewarding car to drive and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: It's fast, fun, handles well, comfortable, and gets respectable gas mileage

    Cons: Some awkward seat adjustments, ugly rear spoiler, rear cupholders don't come standard

    Nice Looking Commuter Car With Good Acceleration. — I love almost everything about this car. It has good acceleration. Good gas mileage. It looks good and the inside is very nice and has all the amenities you would hope for. It is not a sports car though. So, if you want something that accelerates like one I would recommend a GLI.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good all around driver.

    Cons: If you want a sports car this isnt it. If you want a great every day driver with some good det up and go, don't hesitate to buy.
