45,000 mile 2017 Jetta S (base model) owner revue

Late summer 2017 VW factory and dealer discounts made this 2017 Jetta "S" 1.4L turbo 5M available for $14337 out the door. After about 45,000 miles I've been trouble free - not one issue. Fuelly has me just under 41 MPG in 60 City/40 Hwy use The little turbo accelerates well and complements the easy shifting 5 speed manual - aided by smooth synchros which permit easy shifting. Light clutch action aids in the easy handling and "planted" road maneuvering...........

Very reliable car.

This car is more comfortable than any car I’ve owned. It is good on gas as well. I’m glad I took the time to research this car. It looks as though I’m getting a good bargain for my money spent. My previous car was an Acura TL.

Fun to own

My Jetta is fun to own but has a factory recall for the fuel rail. Tried to get it taken care of at Brandon Tomes McKinney dealership but they have horrible service in their service department. So I am currently still working on getting it repaired in hopes of not have a fire issue.

ITS TURBO ENGINE DRIVES LIKE A SPORTS CAR

The Jetta TSI 2017 that I purchased used in October of 2020 has been a pleasant surprise the turbo engine 1.4 gives me the pep i like in certain situations in the city but on the highway it's just fabulous with its easy handling the car seems to glide along, and of course the gas mileage is just excellent especially now that prices have gone up 60 cents since the first of the year

Reliable and modest

My second Jetta. Decided to buy this one used. It's a nice car. Good power and good gas mileage. A little wind noise from the windows at the moment. Not sure if new seals or just some plastic treatment is the solution. For the money I don't think there is a better deal

Reliable, comfortable, inexpensive

This is an excellent car for daily errands or commuting. It is relatively economic on gas and has all needed comfort without excess of luxury feathers. The visibility from the driving seat is excellent. It also has backup camera. It is spacious inside for what could be expected from the outside size.
