This car is solid and well built. It definitely is a German car with very tight steering which you may or may not like. A really strange feature is that the fuel guage is one step from worthless. After filling the needle doesn't move for at least 150 miles. When it reaches 1/8 of a tank I can literally watch it move and shows empty in about 15 miles.
Good handling on wet roads. Very good gas mileage. I only have to fill up twice a month. Comfortable seats. Well equipped for a base model. The only complaint I have is with the users manual. It's not very clear on how some of the features work. For example, I was having trouble remotely opening the trunk. The manual failed to mention that I needed to tap the unlock button twice then tap the trunk release button.
Love my car!
2013 Volkswagen JettaKelly - Central Valley, CA08/21/2014
My car is a pleasure to drive. I love the 40+ mpg that my car gets and I am very pleased with how much power it has on acceleration. The seats are comfortable for long drives and all of the driver controls are placed in well thought out location; I do not have to reach for anything. The panoramic sunroof is a lot of fun to have open on a warm evening when I am driving at the beach or in the mountains. The covered compartments in the cargo area hold a good amount of gear and it says out of site. With the two back seats down flat both of my english mastiffs fit just fine and they have room to lay down. Four adult fit comfortably in my car with plenty of cargo room for all of our stuff.
