I love this Jetta. This car accelerates better than my v-6 Sonata! 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.
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
Great car but...
2011 Volkswagen JettaMarc Held - Westminster, MD01/13/2016
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.
