Excellent — Great daily driver, very good on gas, reliable, comfortable, this is a car that any person that has a long daily commute will enjoy, best part is going to the gas pump and not spending too much to fill it up very often.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great daily driver.

Cons: None to my taste

Great Daily Driver For The People Who Enjoy Driving — Overall a great car, I enjoy every drive. The car is comfortable and efficient all while being completely sexy. The car can get out of its own way well and it a blast to drive at highway speeds. The amount of space in a car with such a small footprint is impressive. I will admit I have had to fix way too many things on a car with 7,000 miles on it. Let’s see… Day one was a new door handle because it broke when opening the door. Passenger door rattled, able to fix. Loud dash rattle, still not fixed. Sunroof rattle, replaced sunroof track, fixed the issue briefly now it’s back. Water pump failed at 3,000 miles, replaced under warranty. TGIL (Thank god it’s a lease) :-P Despite its problems, I love this car. The dealer has been awesome getting things right and dealing with my super crappy schedule. I’m sure I’ll get another one when this lease is up.

Pros: Very Comfortable, Sporty and Stylish, Very Quick

Cons: Turbo lag can be a bit much. DSG is great but sometimes struggles to find the right gear when traveling up steep grades or passing. Build quality has been questionable since production was moved to Mexico.

2014 Volkswagen Jetta S Review
says:
Definitely with I4 and only 115hp this car is not as fast as Volvo S40 T5, Manual transmission helps a little, you have more control, but it is definitely not a racing car. However, since this is going to be a first car for my daughter it is not a big problem. Besides, it still had 7 months of the factory warranty + 2 years warranty from the dealer, 24 kmiles and acceptable price

Handling Ranked 2005 Volvo S40 T5 worse.
"it is smaller and lighter. That allows to sneak in smaller gap between cars and easy to change the lane."
Would Buy Ranked 2005 Volvo S40 T5 worse.
"I came to see this car later than the other buyer and he used his priority. Even though Jetta costs more, it is much newer, has lower mileage on it, warranty and you have nothing to do with it. Just get in and drive."

2014 Volkswagen Jetta SE Review
says:
Powerful for a daily. Can take out frzs and get 28-30 mpg with the 6 speed auto. Decent handling,great trunk size , only problem experienced so far was the horn going out,which I replaced with an aftermarket one. I like this engine because the oil filter is on top,so I change them twice within the 10,000 oil change interval,just for extra precaution.
