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!

Wonderful Car Spoiled Completely By A Very Unfortunate Driving Position. — It's a very good car, fast, stable, economical, good looking, BUT the driving position SUCKS, I just find it impossible to feel really comfortable because probably they built this car for an average driver that is shorter than me. The steering wheel is to high, does not extend enough towards the driver, and it should be more vertical. The foot rest next to the clutch is too close, it is uncomfortable especially on highway driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The TSI engine is just very very good, I think you have to go to BMW to find a better engine.

Cons: If you're tall, check the driving position befor buying.

Best Consumer Grade Sedan On The Road. — My Jetta was a Solid car with what I think could be the perfect engine, a 5 cyl with almost 200HP. It only requires regular gas, but I got up to 42MPG on a trip when I used Premium. Amazing car to own, loved every moment of driving it and NOT A SINGLE ISSUE!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: An affordable, German quality sedan, with power, sporty, but could suit a small family

Cons: If you're looking for Hybrid-like gas milage, go with the clean diesel! Run cleaner than a prius!

The Best Sedan Out There In This Price Range. — Performance: It is very well-powered and has good balance. The feel of the acceleration is fit for a much better car Build Quality: There is only one thing about this car's quality that isn't faultless, and it doesn't really matter. The rear cupholders can come out if treated very badly. Appearance: It is a good-looking sedan, definitely get the sport appearance package. Cost: Near no need for maintenance other than necessary costs such as oil. Good MPGs. Fun Factor: The acceleration is great and it handles superbly well for a sedan. A great feel in every way.

Pros: It's fun, frugal, attractive, and very high-quality

Cons: Only that the rear cup holders can come out if badly treated

Complete, Fun And Rewarding — This car is amazing, it has an excelent sound system, great performance, smooth on corners, very comfortable, xenon headlights, enormous trunk but the brakes are indeed a bit weak, they could use a touch of audi's a4, great for the money.

Pros: engine response on sport mode, 10 speakers, xenon, 17 inch rims, five star rated on crash tests

Cons: brakes

Love My Laser Blue Jetta — 2008 Laser Blue Jetta SE. This car is asking for a race. Everywhere I go, I have rice burners wanting to race. It's somewhat fast on acceleration, but where it really shines is in the corners. Even with factory 16" rims and tires it handles like it's on rails. The stability control program(Formula One tested, perfected, then outlawed on the track because it was too good) works hard to keep you stuck to the road. shhh, don't tell VW, but even with all the abuse (which means road racing) that I've given it in 19,000 miles in less than a year, there are no rattles, no exhaust leaks, no engine or trani problems at all. I like the small gas tank it has. Filling up is pleasing to the eye, and it's not often if you drive it like a normal human. I replaced the very nice 6cd changer, Serious radio with a Pioneer 2x din touch screen DVD player. I didn't care for the "bose type" volume leveling. The 10 speakers handle the power of the Pioneer with no problem. Another very well crafted VW!

Pros: Handles very well and has lots of power out of corners in sports mode. Too much else to list.

Cons: I would have liked to see the 2.5 have a turbo option.

Amazing Car. — This car is absolutely amazing. It is a great and fun car to drive as an everyday driver, or even for the racing scene it is a great car. Handles nicely and can be customized in many different ways. The cost is descent too, its only around 18k. Good price for a brand new car. The interior of the car is just as amazing as the exterior of the car. Its sleek clean just good quality German engineering. Only downside is that i don't have enough money to fully deck it out the way i want it yet.

Pros: Solid build

Cons: Handles a little weak

Decent Car, Great Ride. — All things considered this is a decent car. It has plenty of room on the inside for a road trip, and it is one of the most comfortable cars I've driven on long trips (6 hours or more) which I take plenty of. Highway performance drops off, and dont expect much from your upper RPM's. I'd reccommend getting a larger rim package too, which will help smooth out the ride, as it can be a bit rough at times. The car is also prone to being blown about a bit by the wind at highway speeds too. After driving the Wolfsberg edition, it became clear that I should of gotten that...

Pros: Roomy and comfortable

Cons: Performance drops at highways speeds, rough ride at times.

It is the perfect highway car, the smoothness of an American full size, the handling of a European sports sedan, and over 45 mpg on a trip. Read More
