I purchased sight-unscene; 148,000 miles and all. But the TDI is what sold me, and I'm so far grateful for the purchase. I've already put 3,000 miles on it (only owned for 6-weeks), but no issues so far, and I'm getting 35mpg average (most of my driving is city). Excellent car.
Found this particular model (R-line w/lighting package))with 16,500 miles on it. Bought it 4 months ago, put 2,500 miles on it with road trip to Florida...no issues (and upper 30's on mpg highway)5, 000 miles overall. Ride and comfort good, lots of storage/leg room, technology excellent (had 2009 Jetta prior), and many comments on good looks. Still have year to go on warranty, don't expect any issues.
Nice car. Good ride, power is adequate. Economy could be better. Steering is numb but responsive ... but so is my A4. Tiptronic Sport mode is a joke ... it still shifts automatically any time it wants (or does not when it should), often taking one by surprise at an inopportune time.... in normal mode the automatic works great. Blind spot visibility could be better. Excellent value because of the carry over from the Jettra Sportwagen TDI problems.
This car was perfect for me! It got insane fuel mileage (TDI SE with manual transmission). It could be a grandma car or a fun sporty I wanna race car. My husband wanted me to get a vehicle that could tow our boat and get through snow better. So off it went. Might be my dumbest trade in ever.
I have an older large 4WD truck for my mountain adventures, and wanted a new smaller vehicle with all the bells & whistles for fun and more efficiency. A TV ad took me to the dealer, and I ended up with this great car that a friend also drives and raves about. I too am a raving fan, and have thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Small but still sits 4-5 comfortably, with room in the back for take alongs. I went with the Wolfsburg edition for the extras and fun too. Well worth it and couldn't be happier. Worth a test drive at minimum...and now they are a little bit bigger. Enjoy!
Basic on the outside, but the interior ALWAYS made me feel I was in a BMW or an Audi. Great acceleration and breaking. Great sound system. It was my dad's car, but I ALWAYS drove it when he was'nt around because it was much better than my car at the time.
It is a great car. It's the TDI model so it's diesel which makes it excellent on mpg which is something like 45 mph on the highway. The Turbo gives it very nice HP with great acceleration when you need it, the SEL model also give this Jetta all the "bells and whistles" love the heated leather seats, dual climate control, back up camera, GPS, moon roof, etc all in all its a very nice car the only Con would the engine is a little louder than id like but really not a problem at all, it is a diesel so the engine sounds like micro semi truck engine .
If there was one thing i wasn’t sure about it was the black wheels instead of fancier chrome ones. It handles great and has enough pick up to pass cars. It came with turbo engine. Good gas mileage also. Mine came with blue tooth installed and sound is better than a lot of blue tooths in other friends cars.
I should start by stating I have made some tasteful modifications to this car. Sport tunned Coilovers, ECU tune, Turbo back exhaust and an intake. This car is absolutely amazing. I'm currently making 227 whp and 267 tq on a factory clutch without incident. The 1.8 came alive with the Unitronic Stage 1+ tune and fuel mileage has actually gotten considerably better. Now getting 37mpg on average. Amazing vehicle with nearly unlimited potential.
This car is just the right size and suits my needs. My commute to work places 500 miles a week on my car. The diesel engine gives me great gas mileage. It's interior is comfortable and I don't feel like I'm in a tin can.
