    Would Definitely Buy Another. — 08 Wolfsburg - great car. Handles well, very good acceleration, brakes chatter on very hard deacceleration. Has a DSG 6 spped, love to manually shift. Very fun car to drive. Had a Pontiac GTP prior,, but love the handling and road feel of the Jetta. Hit a porcupine and busted front grill, changed it over to a Thunder bunny front end - changed the whole appearance of the car - looks leaner and meaner. No mechanical issues other that trim on moon roof. Great little sleeper and really fun to drive. My hobby is working on "true" race cars, Lola T8900, Gurney Eagle and Porsche 935 are a few in the stable. My profession is a Director Of Maintenance for a private fleet.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfortable, sporty, fun

    Cons: Brakes - needs better balance

    Good Car. — A German car that is designed for the Autobahn. Handles very well too. Good quality parts, and good material make a solid structured car. The car is fun to drive; especially when it's a stick. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

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

    Pros: That it's German

    Cons: 1st Gear Acceleration

    Good Car, Just Make Sure You Have The Warranty! — Compared to driving my truck this is my "go-cart" Fun little car to drive and gets good miileage! The transmission might have a bad valve body, but it also lears how the driver drives, so it just might be that system causing us to think there is a problem.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun!

    Cons: Will have had two warranty items replaced in under 12000miles

    Great All Rounder — Great value for money, performance is moderate, comfortable and great build quality. Service costs are a bit high but it is German so that is expected. Great all rounder car. Sporty fun and comfortable. Volkswagen is a great company and would tell everyone to go check out any of their products!

    Pros: Styling, Handling, Comfort, Quality and Great Value for Money

    Can Say Nothing Bad About It! Drivers Wanted! — As fun to drive as it is good looking! Excellent acceleration for a 5 cylinder. 6 speed gearbox works well and is well mated to the engine. Build quality is amazing! Every bit as well put together as a BMW or Audi!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun, comfortable, and economical- the perfect combination!

    Cons: You should buy this car

    2008 Volkswagen Jetta — The performance of this car is pretty good. For acceleration means it does pretty good for the base model. Just after awhile the braking tends to wear off but it has extremely good handling. The quality of this car is okay, but because it is a foreign car the repairs are very costly. The cost of ownership is extremely great a low cost. As far as driving this car it is very nice to have as a car for everyday driving.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Illuminated Lights and Automatic Lights

    Cons: Maintenance Costs

    V-dublicious — Its a fun car to drive, it looks sporty yet classy at the same time. The chrome grill makes it stand out a bit and adds a nice touch. The interior looks solid as most german cars do however it needs a bit more detail.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It handles well, feels solid inside and looks solid on the outside

    Cons: No fog lights, and the interior could be a bit more detailed

    I Love It. — Services are so far apart! One of the most fuel economic cars on the market- They set a guinness world record with it. The styling is great its gorgeous to look at but not showy or over the top. Very reliable and most of all safe- one of the safest on the market in that category.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Economy, reliability, safety, styling.

    Cons: Cant think of any!
