    2006 Volkswagen Jetta

    Best Car Ever Owned

    Pros: clean mileage

    Cons: automatic locking feature of the doors

    Mine is a TDI diesel. Clean, powerful, efficient, and a good performer. I now have 127,000 miles, and have done nothing but change oil, fuel filters,, and tires. You could not ask more from a car!!

    2006 Volkswagen Jetta

    Love the Car, Hate the problems

    Pros: Love the power and handling

    Cons: Over sensitive check engine light and a little noisy

    I bought my Jetta new in April 2006, after 3 weeks I had to go back to the dealer because the bolts attaching the engine to the block had snapped off. That should have been my signal to return it. I have had the car in the shop about 18 times since then with several different issues. Check engine light is way too sensitive and nothing is a simple fix.

    2006 Volkswagen Jetta - 2.5 (M5)

    Pros: dash and lighting, handling

    Cons: quality and muti function display

    Advice: do not buy this car if you more than 10 miles from dealership....you will be visiting quite often.

    Great Handling and MPG. Electrical problems from 6500 miles on. Interior seats are leather and color is wearing off in certain spots, Multi fuction display is not user friendly at all. Many lube centers do not carry oil and filters for this car requiring a dealer visit for oil change...very expensive.

    2006 Volkswagen Jetta - TDI (EOP 38/06) (M5)

    Pros: TDI Engine w/ 6 speed DSG automatic

    Cons: Dash Rattles

    Advice: Don't compare this to a gasoline engine, view it on its own scale.

    Only major problem was a module in the driver’s door that opened the window by itself, but fixed under warranty. Dash rattles that come and go are my only complaint now. 39.25 mpg in mixed driving is awesome! Diesel is the future! Just don't expect geniuses at the service department.
