Only had car a couple of weeks, but I really like it. Everything seems to be well put together. Car handles great for a sedan. Trunk is super huge and interior has quite a bit of room for a compact car. Through first 3 tanks of fuel, I have averaged 31 MPG. Engine has more than enough power for my driving style. All controls seem to be laid out very well.
Fun to drive quotient is definitely way up there. I volunteer to run errands just to drive this car.
One of the few complaints that I have with the Jetta is that the center console is a bit wide in the knee area. If this area was a little slimmer, ride would be more comfortable.
