Reliable, quick, reasonably priced entry-level sedan, with european flair
Nothing has gone wrong with the car, it appears to be a sound automobile.
Pretty powerful for a 5 cylinder. It handles smooth and tight. I don't have any complaints about it. It is certainly no GLI or Wolfsburg Edition, but it is an excellent entry-level sedan, reasonably priced.
Excellent on gas ranging anywhere from 20-26 miles per gallon. The interior lighting at night is awesome. Lots of low-end torque or spunkiness from the get-go, and overall acceleration. Yes, if you were side to side with a Dodge Viper at an intersection, at the greenlight the Viper would certainly dust you. But with most other similar import sedans, you can certainly put them on the spot or challenge them well with this vehicle.
Overall, I am very happy with this vehicle, even though it is a base model Jetta. I think many others would be happy with it as well.
These Jettas are actually made in Mexico, but you are getting precision German engineering when you buy one of these vehicles. My next vehicle down the road will certainly be a Volkswagen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
