2006 Volkswagen Jetta Value Edition 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)
Purchased my Jetta used with approximately 25k miles. I currently have 81,000 miles and the car is still running strong. This car has a very solid feel to it and drives like a more expensive vehicle. I test drove other cars in this class (Civic, Corolla, etc) and the quality of those cars do not compare to that of the Jetta. I do not understand why other owners feel that the Jetta is not very reliable. With proper maintenance, my Jetta has not given me any problems. The cost of doing maintenance at the dealer is high. However, I was able to find a reliable VW/ Audi mechanic in the area who is able to do work for 1/2 the price. A lot less than it would be if I owned a Honda or a Toyota.
Everything. Great build, great quality. Solid feel when driving. Feels like I'm driving a more expensive European car, like a BMW, but for a lot less money.
