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.

Wunderba Auto, Good For A First Car — I love this car, I am a huge fan of german engineering, though I normally drive older BMWs I own 3 cars right now and the jetta is my daily. its got enough power to make me have bit of fun, could use a better tune though since the euro version is almost exactly the same mechanically but pushes 170hp and 190ft lbs of torque vs the US 150hp and 17Ft/Lbs of torque. I wish VW would have stuck with a more independent body style instead of merging into what everyone else is doing. but its to be expected from new cars

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good Fuel milage, fair power, smooth transmission (Manual), WARRENTY

Cons: needs a wee bit more power. RWD would have been nice too, and most definately a TDI would have been 10x better

Awsome — My car is customized quite a bit, so anything I say might not apply... Nothing has ever broken, It is a fair price for everything that you get. It maintains power though out its inline 5 engine and has never skipped a beat

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

Pros: Good on gas

Cons: No Turbo

Think Of It Like The Billy Cart You Had As A Kid - Poorly Built But A Heap-o-fun! — On the upside: Superb Handling, great brakes, steering just beautiful, big grip, car feels small and agile, great lateral support from sports seats Good performance from Turbo engine - impressive torque for a 2.0L engine...really needs RWD or 4WD to better put power to the ground though. DSG transmission is just perfect And on the downside : Cheap interior with poor build quality eg: rattles in dash and annying static noise from one speaker (poor connection). Automatic headlights come on at really odd times by themselves and the posh up/down electronic headlight adjustment still makes them point too low and makes night driving a real pain.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tick the Turbo box when ordering = big fun

Cons: Dont believe the 'german build quality' hype....it aint there

El Jetta — I don't really know what to say. It is a great car that can handle my lead foot, lol. The performance is good enough to get my heart pumping but weak enough so I can't do much damage. It trade up to a GLI any day at the price of probably jail time.

Pros: Looks & Torque

Cons: Squeeky windows!

Lame Ass Car — Quite possibly the most feminine car i could have gotten next to a new beetle. 5 cylinders of FURY. a whopping 140 hp !!! Automatic TIPTRONIC. funny thing about FWD is putting all your torque down on a turn (which is relatively nothing) your drive wheels start spinning but they happen to also be your steering wheels. HI canyon wall!!

Pros: speakers? steering

Cons: looks, performance, control, modification ..etc....
