Pros: Diesel Engine
Cons: Bouncing Ride on Most Roads, I personally don't think suspension is set up right, even with the short wheelbase.Great MPG with the Diesel Engine. Slight wind noise, water leak right rear window, other than that, really good vechicle. But be careful of side blind spots, when changing lanes.
Cons: allDon't make the same mistake i did, vw suck.
Pros: Diesel Power, fuel mileage, handling, large trunk.
Cons: Uncomfortable seats, road noise, stiff ride.Purchased 2009 Jetta TDI. Tried to get one with Navigation, but ended up having an aftermarket nav installed. Would not do that again. Overall the jetta has very good handling, easy to get around and a huge trunk that easily carries 4 golf bags.
