"I have driven this car for the past eight years , driving 250 miles a week with no major problems except for one. There was one costly repair of a fuel ejection piece , it had sat in airport lot for a week . The engine would not turn over and the part had to be ordered from Germany . I would still recommend this car highly. Love the way it drove !"

"I purchased this car brand new. I have always performed maintenance on schedule and always cared for the car. For the first 2 years all was great, but then it started having small electrical issues. A few months after the warranty expired, the car began to experience some major electrical problems. ABS Control Module, Cooling Pump, Fuel Injection System to name a few. I have experienced a major repair every year after the warranty expired. Every MK5 Jetta owner that I have spoken to has had similar stories."

"This car has become a part of the family, always reliable, high millage, runs and looks great. Have kept up with all maintenance requirements. Hate to sell this car, but it's just one too many since my father's passing...it was his car. It's been garaged kept. We had the brakes redone about 500 miles ago. It looks, drives, and runs great. I think this car will go to 500,000+ like my dad's previous Jetta did!"

"Has been an enjoyable sedan. Above average fit & finish, low maintenance profile, good service record and very good milage if driven responsibly. Handles well on winding roads and the turbo does a great job of offering great acceleration."

"Reliable, economic (45-50 mpg at 65-70 mph) and quick when necessary. Very effective brakes. Suspension a little soft for speed in curves, but tracks well. Overall enjoyable to drive but would be less so if automatic. (it's a six speed manual)"
