Customer Review Summary for Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid
I cannot believe how much i love this car
2013 Volkswagen Jetta HybridBeth - San Diego, CA01/15/2015
This car makes me so happy. It has all the tech features of the new hybrids - a great stereo (Fender), panel display etc. It has serious power - I haven't even tried to put my foot down for a prolonged period of time because it goes zero-fast in no time at all. It has fun features we keep finding - like it lights up the side of the road when you put your signal on. The heated seats come on lightning fast on those cold mornings. The defroster for front and back windows takes just seconds, as does the air-conditioning. And of course the gas mileage is ridiculously good - about 39 mpg for me so far.
Fantastic car, not a "typical" Hybrid.
2013 Volkswagen Jetta HybridMark W - Chesapeake, VA06/08/2015
I'm more of a Full Size Sedan type of person, but I got the Jetta Hybrid for HOV advantages in VA, and it doesn't "Look" like the many Hybrids out there.
I love it, I drive around 500-600 miles a week, averaging around 43 MPG hwy. I read many reviews about how many hybrids are sluggish, and that's absolutely not the case with this car. The regenerative braking takes some getting used to, as they're more touchy than an a non-hybrid. Picture getting new brakes that never break in. The car can ride for around 10 miles on pure electricity, and if you're in the city you should have no problem keeping the battery charged. I've got a love/hate with idling in batter power though, because while it saves gas, it sometimes hesitates off the line.
This car is a lot of fun and great on the pocket book, with a few exceptions. My car has now been at the dealer for maintenance twice in the 4 months I have owned it. 2 weeks after purchasing the air conditioner compression broke. Just now I had to take it in a second time for the check engine light being one. Extremely frustrating.
