I was bidding on a 2009 Volkswagen Passat Komfort, unfortunately I did not win. I decided to look for something with the same features, quality and performance by Volkswagen. To my surprise, I searched upon the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. It would solve my problem with the same features, quality and performance of the Passat Komfort. Suddenly, my situation changed, there came along another 2009 Volkswagen Passat Komfort. Had not this happened, I surely would have purchased the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. I think I would have been very pleased.

My Car — Everything that has been down to my car aftermarket wise was done by and purchased by me. I value my car a lot because it was my first car I bought my self. It does need some more work but in due time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Get's me to and from work everyday with no problems. Is my first car that i bought myself.

Cons: Needs new paint and interior roof fabric.

Good For What It Was — The 5 cylinder in its stock form was extremely underpowered. This was a great car and did exactly what I needed it to, provide me with transportation at a low cost. My GF was not happy when I sold it.

Pros: Price, Maintenance Costs

Cons: MPG

Still Smooth Sailing After 5+ Years — My 2009 TDI SE has treated me very well for over five years and 70K, and I am still happy with it. The build quality on this generation is really, really good (unlike the dumbed down start to the next gen after): the interior is premium and the exterior is quietly upscale and distinctive in a good way. Having heard from some about VW's prior reliability problems when I bought it, I wondered whether I'd be in for some unexpected bumps in upkeep. But this car has been 100% reliable, with no time in the shop except for the regular maintenance, a new set of tires, and (just recently at 70K) a new pair of rear brake pads. And I still get about 43 highway and low 30s city MPG-- above EPA.

Pros: Excellent torque and sufficient power with high MPGs! Ride is just a little sporty yet still very comfortable Good looks that age well (I still get compliments, which is nice ;) Quiet (TDI quieter on the road than gasser version) DSG automatic is super fast Upgraded sound system still sounds great Heated seats Good visibility Letherette ages better than real leather Good safety features (lots of airbags and good ratings)

Cons: Crawling at slow speeds with a DSG is a little lurchy (unavoidable with dual clutch automated manual but could be refined a bit more) Maintenance costs at dealer are a little inflated Even with cold weather package, cabin takes a good five minutes to warm up on cold days (again, comes with the territory with diesel, but supplemental heating element could be more powerful) I had to install bluetooth for an extra $400! (Fortunately, VW fixed this oversight later I think)

Cool Mom Car — I would own another one for sure. I like my sun roof and it does pretty good in snow. I wish parts weren't so expensive and oil changes were cheaper. But, car is very reliable and I have not had any problems with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Four Door, so easy for my 5 year old daughter to get in and out

Cons: Any parts....very pricy

No Complaints, Could Ride Alille Better But Its A Small Car, Rides Better Than All The Rest I Dr — love the power and mpg. ride could be a little better,but rides better than any other small car i have drove, and i road tested a bunch. hard to beat 38 miles to the gallon every time, city hiway,and running it hard. will pull 100mph with out a problem (uphill) Its an amazing power house. time will tell on how reliable they will be. i trade in a 100,000 i consider a 100000 miles trouble free pretty damb good. hope the next car will be so kind. i am gonna try a toyota hybrid next time. (avalon) They still get good miles per gallon and alittle better ride for theses old bones.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 38 miles to the gallon in town, 40s on the hiway.  I do mostly city 90% and always do 38 or better. ben a good car with 95000 miles now, no repairs to date. I did brakes pads, but they still had 40%. they were cheep so I did them. easy job. 09 had 4 wheel disc. car has great torque, harley never downshifts, even on hills. pulls strong. you would have to drive one to be a believer. pulls better than most 6 cyl without having to rev the motor.

Cons: door locks switch click sometimes,but not a problem. solid car

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
