Dislike this car very much!
This Volkswagen Jetta, while not being the first car I've driven, was the first car I've every owned myself. I absolutely hate it, plain and simple. It had very high miles when I got it (150,000) and is now at 191,00. The transmission slips and it stalls all the time. And no matter how many times the mechanic says "he fixed the problem with the transmission," the problem is still not fixed.The air conditioner does not work and hasn't worked since I got it. The interior is pretty nice but it smells like crayons! I have no idea how or why it smells like crayons but I can not get the smell out no matter what I try. Overall the car runs horrible, but I'm sure if it was taken care of properly from the start it would be a pretty nice little car.

Great multiuse car for the average driver
The Jetta is a great quality car that will last a long time as long as you do regular maintenance on it. I like that it's on the smaller size, so it's easy to park and navigate even in small city lanes, but it still has ample room on the interior to comfortably use it as an every day commuter car, fit two friends in the back seat, and have plenty of room in the trunk to go shopping or run errands. The design is pretty straightforward and no frills, which is nice because I don't want a ton of fancy stuff that has to be maintained and cleaned, but it has everything you really need in a car. Performance-wise, it has good pick up, and has a lot of pep in it when you need to pass someone or merge lanes. Everything shifts pretty well, and I like that it is automatic. My friends have complimented me on the car, as they know it is a reliable, multipurpose car that is great for a daily driver for most needs. Overall, I enjoy using this car, even after 7 years of owning it. It is efficient and makes decent mileage, as I only have to fill it up once per week most weeks. The mileage hasn't decreased over time as dramatically as some other cars I have had either, so that is a plus. The electronic elements in the automatic windows have held up over time, however I have had multiple issues with the cooling system sensor in the on board computer as well as the mechanisms in the doors that control the locks.

Best Car I've Ever Owned
I don't believe in hype. I believe in results and quality! With that being said - I never doubt my Jetta's quality. I intend to purchase Volkswagen cars for the rest of my natural life. Unfortunately, I had owned some real LEMONS before I decided to purchase my VW Jetta. Those horrible LEMONS made me appreciate the beauty and splendor that is my VW Jetta. I've owned it for 6 years and it has naturally accrued a large amount of miles without encountering any major problems (for the record, I have more than 200 thousand miles on the speedometer). The interior leather has held up really well and still looks posh. While I don't really travel much, I would say my Jetta is very efficient with gas mileage. Even after 6 years of ownership, my Jetta runs like a dream. I am an avid antique buyer and I have been able to successfully transport the majority of my large purchases in my beloved Jetta. The only con I must note is that I have since given birth to a daughter and I am finding the Jetta will become too small for my growing family.
