Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.455 reviews) I've owned a Mk4 jetta model year 00-05 great car very reliable. Parted ways at 236k miles. I've always been a loyal Volkswagen owner due to the amazing design of them paired with the sportyness and overall entry level luxuries such as genuine leather seats that are heated all my Volkswagens have had stunning interiors All and all I myself am a Volkswagen enthusiast and will only drive Volkswagens but I guarantee that anyone who gets there first Volkswagen will be amazed. Only problem I've had is dealer went cheap an the scratches it had they tried covering up with a paint pen.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) I am not too familiar with German cars, I noticed this car takes a long time (more than 15 min) for the A/C to get cold. Then it does blows cold. In Miami, this is critical. My other vehicles don't do that. No matter how hot is outside. It spends a lot of gas for a compact vehicle. We just have it for a short time, My daughter drives it, I need to get organized to take it to the dealers for a check up or some orientation. But I am not as happy as I was when I bought any of my others cars

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) The car is excellent on gas mileage. A full tank can get you 500 miles until empty. The leather seating gives it that lux feel. Kind of compact but still roomy. I'm 6 feet tall so it's small to me. No problems so far, just regular maintenance. Love this car!!!

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Average Vehicle Review: (2.333 reviews) The Jetta TDI wagon is the golf GTD that I have been wanting Volkswagen to import for years. Based on an extended 4 door GTI chassis with the same brakes and suspension it is a pleasure to drive. The 6 speed manual transmission is silky and the 236lbft.of torque make it loads of fun to toss around in city traffic or a curvy back road. Having the added space of the wagon allows me to load up my wife and our 4 large dogs for trips to the beach and park. 42 miles per gallon at 75mph on the highway has me smiling all the way to the bank! Yeah there is the emissions scandal, but VW will have to fix it. The benefit now is that they can be found at great prices.

With three different drive types of standard drive mode, sports mode, and manual shift, the car can meet whatever driving attitude you may have that day. I'm a big guy (6'1" and 300+) and I'm very comfortable in the car. This car has become my favorite car owned replacing my previous 6cyl Honda Accord. Love this car and my next car will be a VW.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) This car is solid and well built. It definitely is a German car with very tight steering which you may or may not like. A really strange feature is that the fuel guage is one step from worthless. After filling the needle doesn't move for at least 150 miles. When it reaches 1/8 of a tank I can literally watch it move and shows empty in about 15 miles.

Tight controlled ride but not too stiff, stable in turns. I love the leather interior and utility of the amenities. The only thing I don't like is the hard plastic dash...but this is just an annoyance as this is a Sport model and weight savings is the theme! Sport is between SE and GLI.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) Fantastic performance and fuel economy in a car with plenty of room for 4 people. That 1.8 TSI Engine is awesome. I just drove a rental model back from Reno and in 205 miles averaging 77mph it got 41.4MPG according to the computer. Driving the car for over 500 miles in a week I have used 35 bucks worth of gas. Thats 1/4 of a 14.5 gallon tank to drive over 200 miles. Thats just mind boggling. Do the math. Its rare to have a car that exceeds the predicted MPG, while driving at 80 + with your foot in it.

I would totally recommend this car to anyone!

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) I learned part of the exhaust system has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that is very expensive to replace. Many are go approximately 120,000 miles. I estimate Ill have another 30,000 miles before mine needs replacing. Hoping that with the imminent emissions recalls, it will get handled by VW. Do not buy a diesel if you only do short trips. You will kill the DPF fast.

I would recommend to anyone who wants and great car at a fair price.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) The 2.5L engine has a nice, snappy feel to it. Plenty of power. Rear seat has TONS of room for a sedan that's on the smaller side. Gas mileage is fantastic, regularly hit around 30 even when driving on my short commute to work on a regular basis. 33-35 on the open highway between 70-75MPH. Only detractor is the cabin is a bit noisy at higher speeds, even with quieter tires. Even with an automatic transmission, in sport mode this thing is a blast to drive. Lots of customization options available for you aftermarket fans. No major issues, I've put about 30k miles on it since purchasing it and haven't had to do a thing other than regular service visits.

The drive is smooth, the sound system is clear and the style is clean and sophisticated. I couldn't have chosen a better car to fit my needs, although it is a smaller vehicle it carries what I need and is a dependable vehicle. The gas consumption is good too, I basically fill up about 2 times a month and depending on gas prices it averages about $25 - $30 to fill.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4 reviews) Incredibly good handling, nice high rev power with the turbos, and surprisingly good fuel economy over long trips (34 mpg). I rent many "premium" vehicles as part of my job - I always love getting back in my 2014 GLI. The MK6 frame is very well balanced and the 2.0L turbo is perfectly matched in regards to power:weight ratio. The GLI is not trying to be a muscle car - but you will absolutely go through front tires every 10k if you buy a soft compound and drive aggressively.
