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.

Why Linds Loves Jerry The Jetta — I love that this car has 3 ways to drive it: D, S, or +/-. I usually drive with it in Sport because it's way quicker off the start. The 6-speed +/- is fun if you actually know how to shift, which I don't! It turns on a dime, no repairs needed thus far. GREAT black leatherette interior with carbon fiberish trim. LOVE the blue lights on the instrument panel. LOVE the euro spoiler and taillights. GREAT gas mileage, or at least it's great to me...about 22-24 mpg in town. This car is WAY RAD and SUPER FUN to drive! I recommend this car to any and everyone! I used to have a BMW 330-Ci before this, and believe me or not...I enjoy driving this car and enjoy it as a whole more than my beemer. Crazy, I know. But I am definitely in love with Jerry the Jetta. :)

Pros: LOTS

Cons: NONE

Nice Features, But Pricy — I enjoyed the ride and engine response. The interior is pleasant enough for me to not become annoyed if stuck in traffic. I'd consider it if money and VW reliability issues are sorted.

Pros: Ride, standard safety features

Cons: VW reliability history, price.

Pros: I can fit just about anything in my car plus it has a glow in teh dark trunk handle incase you get locked in your car.

Cons: I can't find anything bad about my car.
