I bought my jetta turbo brand new! 2 years later the engine goes out! 2 years after that the transmission went out! talk about a lemon! A lot of other things went bad i just don't have enough space for details. It looked beautiful but the vw cars are nothing but trouble. I was so glad to get rid of it and now I'm so happy with my Honda!
Original owner of a great commuter car. Have had no major problems mechanically. Still get 44 mpg overall with 80/20 hwy/city. Ride and drive a re still surprisingly good despite having 250,000 miles. Bought the car to be able to haul cargo and get good gas mileage after using a 1/2 ton truck. Still on original clutch, brakes, transmission, etc. Very impressed with the car overall and would not hesitate to buy again when this one dies.
Heated front seats.
Resolve front end clearance problem. Hangs up on curbs if you get too close.
So far, I have not had any major problems with this car unlike others that seemed to have lemons. I've only had to replace the spark plugs (40k), water pump (60k), and timing belt (60k). However, this is standard maintenance for Volkswagen cars. The interior lighting is amazing in this car. It feels like I'm flying an airplane at night! I agree that this car is not built for a tall person b/c there is little room in the back nor the front, but I'm only 5'5", So its perfect for me. The turbo is great in this car. It never hesitates when you punch it. Guess I got the good one.

Better gas mileage. With the heat in Texas, having the a/c on burns fuel quickly especially when the car needs premium fuel. Work on the cup holders, they shouldn't block the radio and not above the shifting gear.
Bought this car with one owner and 36k miles. Excellent, fast, comfortable and lots of comments. It's a German made car, it's expected to be babied. You must take care of it, if you do it will perform. It's also turbo so regular checks, synthetic european blend oil, proper rated tires. Good purchase for me!
This car is amazing. But, don't let the beauty of this car fool you. I just recently purchased it used and already have to replace the catalyst converter($380) cause of the fuel fumes I smell in the cabin of the Jetta. Well i did buy the car used with 122,00+ miles on it, these things are bound to happen. Also, the Monsoon radio has just shut off. If that happens just take fuse #42 out for thirty seconds and let the static electricity calm down. other than that this car is Amazing! The power of this vehicle is amazing.
The interior lighting, the exterior design, the cabin arrangement, and the comfort of the seats.
Longer back row for your feet. And the cup holders aren't the best design
