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.
Great car, and great price!
2013 Volkswagen JettaSedes W - Colorado Springs, CO02/28/2017
I absolutely love my Jetta. It's spacious, comfortable, drives very smoothly, and my gas mileage is amazing. The mileage was in the 30,000s when I bought it and the price was wonderful considering everything about the car. I also love my sun roof and heated seats.
Incredibly good handling, nice high rev power with the turbos, and surprisingly good fuel economy over long trips (34 mpg). I rent many "premium" vehicles as part of my job - I always love getting back in my 2014 GLI. The MK6 frame is very well balanced and the 2.0L turbo is perfectly matched in regards to power:weight ratio. The GLI is not trying to be a muscle car - but you will absolutely go through front tires every 10k if you buy a soft compound and drive aggressively.
