2007 Volkswagen Jetta Fahrenheit GLI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
This is my third VW and my second GLI and it has not disappointed. I love the car and even the bright yellow color (though it wasn't my first choice). One of the other reviewers (a fellow Nebraskan) had trouble in the snow. I have not. I bought snow tires for the winter and didn't have any trouble at all. The DSG transmission would get 'stuck' when first starting out in very cold temperatures, but otherwise no mechanical problems at all.
Mileage! This car is fast and fun, yet still gets 24 city and 30 hwy. Not bad for as much fun as it is!
The Fahrenheit Yellow paint is very fragile and chips easily, but worse, road tar seems to stain it. I would have expected a much higher quality paint job from VW.
