I 'downgraded' from a CC to a Jetta GLI because I wanted a lower monthly payment and it's been a fine move. The Jetta interior is not as nice as the CC or as well put together, but there is a lot of room for such a small car and it's comfortable enough even on long drives. The 2.0T engine is a strong performer at low RPMs, with good passing power and a responsive transmission. Ride is mediocre; I think the tires are too hard. The cheapness of the car also shows with more road noise than I prefer.
Maybe I complain too much! The radio is very good; the tech interface is easy; the climate control works well (but no rear HVAC vents!!!); heated seats, sunroof, and satellite radio are luxury enough for me. Overall it's a good value and a fun car to drive. It's just not as good as it could be.
Lots of pick-up, room for my 3 tall boys! Love it!

It feels like a luxury car with the smooth ride and great pick-up. I love driving it. My family of 5 fits in it, including my husband and 2 boys who are all over 6 feet. Love the interior, the back camera, the sound system, and most of all, I love the reliability of my Jetta along with the fuel efficiency. Totally recommend it!
My VW Jetta is a very good drivers car. My wife loves it. it's power and fule milage are very good. We are strongly considering leasing a second Jetta. I would recommend a Jetta to anyone.
