Beautiful car, cool extra features, without spending all that extra cash!

I purchased a 2017 Volkswagen Jetta glia and absolutely love it! I have had Jettas since I first started driving in 2009 and never had an issue with any. This specific model has been my favorite since it is the full package model with all the nice extras that previous models didn't have, such as; beautiful led auto lights, blind spot monitoring, keyless lock and unlock feature, parking sensors and more! For such a nice compact car, it feels very spacious as well and I love all the room it has in the trunk. It also has smooth drive and steering with a sporty feel, however it is a bit pricey than other small sedans.

The vehicle supports Bluetooth, has an AUX and USB outlet.

The Volkswagen is a great car for someone who�s young and just began driving. This is my second car, first being a Ford Fusion, and the Jetta honestly does not compare. The car is loud, it smells like plastic, the features are pretty outdated for being a newer model, and overall the driving experience is severely below average. Great for 16-20 year old's who are new to the road. The gas mileage is fair, and it is pretty affordable to fill up the tank (roughly $35-40). Volkswagen will charge you for every single penny they can, so be careful when entering a dealership to buy a car!

I love my awesome Jetta!!

My car is amazing. It drives very smooth & you can get the speed up very quickly without punching it too hard. The car is very roomy and quiet. I spend about 30 dollars on gas each week and I drive very far distances. I have black leather seats and a sunroof with alloy rims. It has Bluetooth and I cannot connect it to my iPhone so that I can text people by speaking to the car which is very helpful! I found it at a local dealership for a very great price! I would definitely recommend it.
