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

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.

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

Cons: Weak base-level radio.

Great Fun For A Great Price. — I love the car, Performance wise its by no stretch a sports car but with a few mods it can be alot of fun, brakes on the car are great and it handles like a car that cost three times as much. Build quality rivals that of more expensive cars and blows honda, toyota, nissan, dodge, ford, and chevy out of the water. I like the way the car looks it has nice lines and a great front end. Cost wise if you do your own oil changes its ok, can be a little expensive at times. Overall this is a fun car to drive and though its not a sports car it has no problem keeping up with most V6s and a few others.

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

Pros: Great fun at a Great price, easy to modify, good looks, pretty good gas milage.

Cons: Turbo model is much more fun, very heavy for a small car.

2008 Volkswagen Jetta S Review

Great car for 3 Adults, not 4 or 5.. Good mileage durable. Low maintenance with the I5 2.5l. Would not get the automatic version of this car on dare. Would buy this car again in a heartbeat, if I could go down in size, but still needed a sedan.

Front Seats Ranked 2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro Sedan AWD better.
"More comfortable, even if they dont have the same range of adjustment. I miss being able to raise or lower the seat without changing seat bottoms angle. Still they are more comfortable in the long run. "
Back Seats Ranked 2008 Audi A4 2.0T quattro Sedan AWD better.
"Bigger with more head room and a better center seat."

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

I love this car, is very economical and plus it doesn’t have many miles. The only thing I do recommend is to have a lower cost, since it was very used from the inside. Read More
