"Bought the car as my first personal vehicle (no parental aid either financially or advisory), was more than satisfied with the experience. Was able to finance it on my own, and for the age I was, the car did wonders for me in terms of reliability, and the quality was just top notch in terms of mechanical composition.
Fantastic vehicle for Interstate travel and around town travel."
Pros: "european build quality, price, gas mileage"
Cons: "the base 2.0 engine is underpowered"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I choose the Jetta because of build, price and warranty
(at the time the warranty was 3years with service), the
handling is good and the engine keeps me with all city
traffic. My mileage has been better than the epa estimate,
and I cruise at 75 with no problem.
As a previous VW owner, 65'Beetle and 77' Sirocco, I am
just as pleased with the Jetta.
In fact, the only other car that has been this balanced
and reliable and has great dealer response was my 72'
Datsun 510, which set a standard that has been hard to
match. I plan to upgrade to the GLI or GTI in another year.
I highly recommend the Jetta as a best buy for compact sedans.
P.S. the Jetta has the same interior volume as the C class
Cons: "not a tough car I feel like it can break any time"

"We have had this car for 2 years it has devaluated so fast and it's has given so much problems with electrial. I know people are very happy with their Jettas it's sad that we have had such bad experience. We Want get rid of it soon. Their customer service was great."
Cons: "electrical, shifting, too "european" for me."

"blew fuses right from the get go, shifting was horrible, spray off windshield with window open and all the fluid blows right into the car. electrical problems were getting worse with each drive. Headlights, fuses, dash lights, you name it."
"This is my 4 VW vehicle. The previous cars were the Passat model which I liked too. However this vehicle is the best of all VW models I have owned. One reason is the Diesel Engine and the Automatic Transmission, which is very smooth and precise."
