2010 Volkswagen Jetta 2. 5 limited: a good dependable car for your money!

I love my Volkswagen Jetta! It is a 2010 limited edition. It has 101, 000 miles and runs great. It has had a couple problems but for the most part a very good dependable car. The first problem I had with the car was that the rear wheel bearing on the back passenger side went out, it cost about $400 to replace it. I have also had to have the liner replaced on the inside top of the car that cost about $150. The leather on the doors kept coming apart from the doors and kept falling down so I had to take it to someone and have it glued back twice now which was about $75 each time. With all things considered on an 8 year old car with a hundred thousand miles on it. I think it has been pretty good. I just make sure to keep it serviced as recommended by the dealership and it runs great. The gas mileage could be a little better and the craftsmanship of the leather on the inside of the car and the headliner of the car could have been better. But I will not sit and complain because it gets me where I need to go everyday and has not cost that much to keep it running great.. So overall I am very pleased with my 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, 2. 5 limited edition.

Sporty and small outside but roomy inside.

My car has had few problems other than those of general maintenance such as needing new tires, battery, etc. It performs well, although it does not have the power needed for changing lanes quickly that my previous standard transmission Jetta had. I find it reliable. It is generally comfortable for me. It has blind spots that make changing lanes difficult. I have to compensate for this by changing lanes well in advance of when I need to when there is no one in the next lane. This reduces problems I would have by waiting until I am really close to the place where I need to be in a different lane. It also helps to have a passenger tell me when lanes are clear. My car has many features, but I do not use all of them like the Bluetooth.

That it has never been in a accident. I think the safety of this car is good.

I love my Volkswagen Jetta. I bought this car new and haven't had any problems with it until now. I notice some slipping after coming to a full stop. I have a appointment to have it serviced next week and hopping it isn't transmission problems. It has been very reliability for me as I'm the only driver for this car. I have 4 children and it has plenty of room for us.The trunk space is very large. The features it has is good, wished it had the blind spot feature and back up camera.
