I wanted the clean diesel to be greener & use less fuel. On the interstate at 70-75 I get around 50 mpg I drove the car for months in congested stop & go traffic, my average mileage ran between 32 to 34 miles a gallon. On rough roads it can be a little loud, but if I am listening to stock sound system, which sounds great, I do not notice it even at low volumes. The motor has a lot more get up and go than I was expecting from a diesel and it handles great in curves. I like it a lot!!
Works well !!!
Great ride, lots of fun to drive. Definately a German car b/c of the fit and finish of the car. I have only had the car about a month, but so far I love the car.
very nice car!!!
My first car was a 1967 VW Beetle. The new 2012 Beetle feels like a grown-up version of the car I loved as a kid.
Love my Rabbit!!!
Pros: gas mileage + acceleration + looks
Cons: no sunroofA blast to drive; great visibility, good gas mileage, lots of room in the hatch area to load gear (for it's small size) and...did i mention ;) it is delightfully fun to drive!!!!
Pros: Response! This car kicks it!This is my 2nd Jetta and I have owned Honda's, Nissan's, Acura's, Subaru. I love cars! I went back to the Jetta for it's perfomance, response, good handling and over-all value. It just feels like 'more' car to me.
