Customer Review Summary for Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid
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.
Fun alternative to a Prius for the German-file

All the good of a Volkswagen, hybrid mileage POSSIBLE if you don't stick your foot into the turbocharger too much, but it DOES have the turbo if you wanna get up and move!
