Wonderful, wonderful car – Best I've ever owned.

2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


I am staggered by the negative reviews, because that in no way been my experience. With 90,000 miles and counting, I have only had to replace two light bulbs and a brake master cylinder – that's everything since I bought the car in 2005.5. The highway MPGs are consistently above 35-36 without any effort. The car is incredibly comfortable and handles very well for a FWD car. I frequently take it up to the mountain for snow activities without traction tires or chains, and it takes is like a champ – trucks look stunned when I pass them effortlessly. Incredibly safe, reliable, and cheap to own and run – I'll certainly buy another one (I have my eye on a TDI SportWagen).

Performance, MPGs, Handling, Comfort, Reliability, Running Costs

Worst Features

The paint around some of the interior finishes (i.e. some pieces of the stereo and one of the window switch) is starting to flake off, but if that's the only downside to the car, and the positives are so grand, then I'm happy.
