Routine maintenance is critical; always use the premium gas and fully synthetic oil and keep the car running as smoothly as possible.

I enjoy the sunroof and adore the heated seats. I like that I can see out of all windows easily. Another bonus is that the mirrors can tilt so I can see the curb while parking, and defrost during the frigid winters. I dislike how quickly the wiper blades fall apart, even the more expensive ones, so I wonder if there is a design flaw in the way they operate in this model. I don't like how my head touches the roof when I have sunglasses on my head, so that is uncomfortable. I do like the seats but the side is wearing quickly. I was super lucky to upgrade to thicker waterproof floor mats since I live in a very rainy/wet climate. I am on the fence about the oil change notification messages on the dash / instrument panel. I think it was good initially to help get in a routine, but that's only because it was my first car. I absolutely love the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) but my snow tires don't have it so I get that warning message all winter. All said and done, I'm happy with my purchase but routine maintenance costs are expensive. I try to use a dealership for most services but it can be hard to find a good/honest/trustworthy shop; I tend to find a great one but then I move and am no longer close enough to go there.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA BEST CAR EVER!

I LOVE my VW Jetta. It is a 2007, and I have had it since 2011. When I got it, it was practically new with 7,000 miles. It was certified pre owned, and now it has 155,000 miles on. It is a manual 5 cylinder, and shifts so nice and easy. It's a smooth ride, and picks up speed decently. It's pretty good on gas as well, it isn't quite a 4 cylinder slow car, but also doesn't take as much gas as a 6 cylinder. It has all 4 power windows, which is amazing. It has this feature that I love where as soon as I start driving, maybe after a few feet the doors lock automatically and that makes me feel so much safer! It also won't let the car door lock before the driver door is closed, which has prevented me from locking my keys I'm the car. To go along with that there isn't any physical lock on the door that goes up or down, or that you can pull out, which I feel would make it harder to break into the car. The Jetta is actually very spacious inside, everyone has plenty of foot room, and the trunk is surprisingly deep! I love love my Jetta, it has been extremely good to me, and it's still going strong!

The Jetta, a reliable car.

The Volkswagen Jetta is a reliable car. At about 250, 000 miles it still drives decently well, although I have had a few issues. Upon the purchase of the vehicle the spark plugs had to be replaced. The check engine light has come on several times in the year and a half that I have owned it though on the whole it is a good vehicle. It is decently fuel efficient but there are definitely better models if mileage is what you are looking for. The car drives very well, with little issues while shifting; although, after talking with other owners of the same model I have found that there is a small issue with shifting into 3rd gear. The gear shift tends to stick making it very awkward to shift into 3rd gear sometimes. On the whole I would say that if you can get the car for 4000 or less it is a good deal. Otherwise I would look for something a little different. The Volkswagen Jetta of the year 2007 gets a 7/10 for me on a scale of 1-10.
