    2009 Volkswagen Jetta

    Excellent Transportation

    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.

    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.

    2010 Volkswagen Jetta

    best new car

    Pros: fuel mileage - performance

    Cons: could use another 1 or 2 inch of ground clearance with the front valence

    Sportwagon TDI 6speed auto - out of the box - better than rated fuel mileage - plenty of 'zip' to get you onto the highway and keep you there. Typical european - firm ride - predictable steering and braking. Good fit and finish, convienient controlls. rides like a much larger car.

    2010 Volkswagen Jetta

    Superior Value

    Pros: Overall performance on open highway.

    Cons: Getting in & out of driver's seat.

    VW Jetta TDI - Diesel My wife bought it against my opinion. Boy, was I ever wrong! This is one sweet auto - performs like a sports car, very comfortable ride. 39 to 52 mpg! Over 500 miles to a tank.

    2009 Volkswagen Jetta

    Jetta TDI

    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.
