After a few days with my Jetta, I'm amazed at the detail of the interior and exterior compared to my Civic. Too early to really gauge the fuel economy, but the performance of the car in handling, power, and braking is superb. Besides all that: it is super comfortabl to drive and the stick shift is easy and smooth. I'm looking forward to many years with it.
Ambient console lighting, safety features, huge trunk, powerful 5 cylinder engine, blue and red gauges.
Not sure I love the gauge layout since my left hand on the wheel tends to obscure the RPMs.
