I was first attracted to the good looks of this car. Lots of extras on this Wolfsburg edition. Lots of room in the trunk and inside the car. Easy to clean the vinal seats that can be heated when it's the weather is too cold. The DSG if fun to drive and has lots of power to get out of traffic jams. Make sure you use premium gas or you will be sorry. The 2.0 engine is so sweet!
LOVE THIS CAR!
2009 Volkswagen JettaVW Ex Owner - , 07/15/2013
Got extended warranty but didn't pay for direct injection carbon buildup repair. At 95,000 miles, the timing belt broke after in shop for warning lights-check engine. No WarRANTY AND $4,500.00 TO FIX. At 103,000 miles, the alternator went out.
Car designed only to last 80,000 to 90,000 miles before having problems with maintenance items. Extended warranty is no good if the repair is not covered. always serviced by VW...
I bought a 2009 Jetta from Carmax 4 days ago, and I'm completely happy with the purchase. The car is stylish, convenient with satellite radio, sunroof, and other perks that I didn't even expect -- and it drives beautifully. Most importantly, I feel very safe. I am happy with the price I paid and think I got a great deal. It looks and drive like it was more expensive than it was. Took the car to my longtime trusted mechanic this morning, and he said the car looks super clean underneath. He didn't find any problems at all. I'm also happy with the reasonably small size of the sedan for parking, and the spacious comfy seating once you get in. Best of both worlds. Getting ready to drive my new baby to the beach, and I can't wait!
