Review

Great handling, fun car to drive...I've
had a Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Corolla,
Mitsubishi Mirage, Mitsubishi Galant
and they all pale in comparison to my
Jetta. The only thing I would change
(if I could) would be the mileage. I
got better gas mileage with the Toyota
Corolla. But the difference in the ride
is so great that the extra gas doesn't
bother me.


Best Features

The trunk is HUGE. The seats are very comfortable and can be adjusted 3 ways. Also, driver's side window control locks. Great feature if you have small kids who play with buttons!!


Worst Features

I can't honestly think of a thing to add. I love this car!!

Review

I bought my car in July this year and I
have nothing but praise for it. It
looks cool,handles beautifully,has all
those wonderful extras that you don't
expect in the so called "entry level"
model and then there's the German
workmanship that you just cannot fault.
A class act as far as I'm concerned.


Best Features

The non-Monsoon sound system. The a/c, the dashboard lights.


Worst Features

Ask me in a few years.

Review

For those of you with Window/ and Door
rattles. The solution is to lubricate
the door seals on the car itself.Even
if you think this cannot possibly be
the source of your rattles try this
anyway. The best stuff to use for this
is a product called Gumipledge(Sp?) It
is sold by BMW dealers for about $8.
They have the same issue with there
cars. Lube up all the door seals and
any rubber on the doors themselves. Be
sure to get some on the top rubber door
seal that runs along the top of the car.

In addition spray white lithium grease
in your door locks and hinges
I guarantee this will work for many of
you and your car will be rattle free.
Good Luck!!!
