    I Love My Car! — I love driving my car! It is not very small and has a lot of trunk space. My car gets great gas milage plus it has a iPod plug in so I can listen to my iPod while I drive.

    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.

    Tsi - Trend Setting Innovation — Hey, no one explain to me what TSI mean, just try to make up the acronymn. Could it be Turbo SuperCharge Induction? When I test drove this car, it definitely feels like a 2.0 l car

    Pros: Must be the best "sheep in wolf skin"  car

    Cons: Unknown maintenance issue with the twin charge and cost of maintenance

    I Freakin' Love This Car! — 2008 Silver Volkswagen Jetta: 5 cylinder, 2.5L engine; automatic transmission. Roomy interior with a huge trunk capacity. Excellent braking and handling, and superb acceleration for a 5 cylinder. Friendly on gas ( 21 mpg / 29 mpg), and is also pleasing to the eye on both the inside and outside.

    Pros: Spacious interior and trunk. Excellent acceleration and braking/handling, gas mileage, appearance

    Cons: Although the Jetta's reliability is on the rise, it is still a German made automobile, which are notorious for poor reliability.

    My Laser Blue Jetta Has Caught The Eye Of Many A Rubber-necker And Sidewalk-gawker Already!! — This Jetta has a 5 cylinder engine, running on Lamborghini Gallardo technology. The Volkswagen Jetta has exceptional handling on every road condition I have been on so far. It is the safest car on the road right now, in my opinion and experience.

    Pros: Safety, Gas mileage, Size, Everything

    Cons: uh...NOTHING

    A Real Car Addict Would Love This Car!!! — This car has good control, acceleration, and braking. In manual transmission, the acceleration is amazing. The style and looks are attractive. Overall, an amazing car, a good drive.

    Pros: Design

    Cons: The brake squeals when you start the car. This is because VW uses a semi-metallic disc
    brakes instead of their traditional ceramic.

    Love It — I drove a Ford Explorer 06 before this car and after 3 days in this car I drove my explorer back to the dealer and couldn't stand driving it. The jetta is smooth, comfortable, and makes for a great experience when getting from point A to B. Also I'm about 6'3 and the fact that I fit in it, comfortably, is amazing.

    Pros: Comfort, Handling

    Cons: Needs rear wipers

    Nice Car Great Price. — I Just bought an 2008 Jetta SE for $21,500 the other day and am impressed. I used to own a 1995 Jetta that I wanted to park in a lake. After watching VW come around with Audi the past few years I decided to give them a shot again. well, in 3 days I've driven 500 miles over the mountian passes with snow ice and rain. The car has excellent traction control and performed above my expectations. I also enjoyed the comfort of the seats the position of the shifter and high level of attention paid to the details with the leatherwork. My opinion is you get the feel and comfort of a $30,000 car for $20,000

    Owner for 0 years, 1 months

    Miles Driven per Year:500

    Pros: good price, well built, handles great, comfortable

    Cons: for 170hp the engine sure doesn't have power, it's slow to wind up under load,

    Excellent Value For The Money — Bought this car about 3 months/4,000 miles ago. I bought an "S: model, but I loaded it up with all of the "SE" level equipment, minus the sunroof and the 6-disc CD changer. This strategy got me all of the goodies like traction control, heated seats, etc., but still kept my purchase price low, at $19,300.00 This car rides, handles, shifts and stops like a much more expensive car. The engine is very responsive, and my gas mileage hovers around 23-24 in the city and 26-27 highway. The power assisted steering works well, and the car has pretty good grip too. The only weak spot is a cheap base radio, but one can always upgrade with an aftermarket unit. All in all, I think this is a great car.

    Owner for 0 years, 3 months

    Miles Driven per Year:15,000

    Pros: Excellent drive train. Good handling. Well built, with a rock-solid feel. Large trunk. Good gas mileage.

    Cons: Weak base-level radio.
