Reviews for 2019 Volkswagen Jetta

Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5 (14 reviews)

great car but…

All VW cars - I’ve owned four now - are sturdy and reliable. once you’ve owned a German car of any kind, you’ll never buy an Asian or American car again.


  • Power: turbocharged 4 cylinder


  • Seat Comfort: VW needs to work on their seats. From top model to lowest, the seats are hard, poorly shaped, and just cheap. I survive by putting a Purple seat cushion on mine. I shouldn’t have to

Love my Jetta R-Line

Drives smooth, gets great gas mileage, handles easily, and has been tremendous already on a couple road trips.


  • Ride and Handling: Such a smooth ride. Handles easily and isn't jerking when turning/switching lanes.
  • Fuel Economy: Gets about 35-40 miles to the gallon if not driving aggressively.
  • Interior Space: Love the leather interior and all the leg room inside the car. Been a very comfortable car to drive longer periods of time in.

Fantastic Car

Great features, smooth ride, great on gas. Great sound system, very user friendly controls. I always feel like I’m driving a luxury vehicle. Only negatives I can think of is maintenance costs a bit more since it is a german made car (think bmw or mercedes).


  • Fuel Economy: Great mileage. I’m used driving a car that needed to be filled once a week. Now I only fill up every 2.5 weeks.


  • Cost to Maintain: It’s a german made car. So maintenance costs are slightly higher than your typical car.
