My full cat-back AWE touring exhaust sounds excellent

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

The 2017 VW Jetta 1.4l tsi has been a great choice so far for a daily driver. Gas mileage on the highway with performance tires make a big difference not to mention the handling capabilities. Sway bar+coil over springs paired with a good tire setup makes for an even more fun daily driver. I have personally added performance parts under the hood to increase power just a little and give it a nice tuned sound by adding an AWE full cat-back exhaust+CTS cold air intake. I bought this car brand new and have fallen in love with the Jetta along with it's thus far reliability and especially they way I have it uniquely set up to differ from any other Jetta or other car on the road for that matter.

The Best First Car Ever: runs smooth, fits enough, and is an absolute joy

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I love my Jetta! It runs smoothly and has great gas mileage. I am able to connect my phone easily in order to play music or see the map. It comfortably seats 5 people and has a great, roomy trunk to haul groceries or other supplies. I have had no problems with the ignition or anything else under the hood. My only issue has been that I the low tire pressure light appears on the dash even though the tires have been checked multiple times with nothing wrong being found. I am leasing my Jetta right now and hope I get to continue with it because I absolutely love it.

- Eliza H

Great for those who don't like large cars and provides all the basic needs

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

My vehicle has comfortable seats and it is very easy to use and great for those first learning to drive. It is easy to adjust the seat and side mirrors. Some issues with my vehicle is that sometimes it won't let you turn the key if the steering wheel is not in the right position which I had trouble figuring out at first. It also does not have GPS navigation or heated seats which I find upsetting and very useful depending on the climate and location.

- Autumn K

A piece of art + the love of my life

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

The Jetta is an extremely comfortable and cozy car. It really feels like home from the outside in. My Jetta has a black exterior and interior that is easy to maintain. The car also has Bluetooth and an aux cord which makes it great for me and for when I have guests in the car! I bought the car used over 2 years ago now and I've never had one problem with the car. it's extremely reliable and performs AMAZING for its age and wear and tear.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta Review

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

My car has not given me any major issues other than an oil leak and a few fixable things (such as the seat belt light always being on.) My car is very safe for a small vehicle and is very reliable. It gets good gas mileage, and the seats are about in the middle for comfort. I like the power seat controls and the Apple Car Play, which is basically like having my phone as part of the car. The Jetta is also a great looking car as well.

- Quinn U

2017 VW Jetta feels like a Passat

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

The Volkswagen Jetta has been very reliable for me so far. The engine runs well and although it isn't not an expensive car it feels and drives simile to the Passat which is higher end compared to the Jetta. My chief complaint is the seats in the Jetta. The material is my car is light grey and stains extremely easily. It is very difficult to get stains out of the seats which makes the interior feel cheaper.

- Lizzie H

Best built VW thus far from starting with a Beetle.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Never seen any major problems with any type of VW since driving one starting in 1970's. Wear and tear normal costs. Never any major engine replacements of any type. They're made to last for sure. The Jetta is fun even for and older guy like myself, that has and is a very fast driver. When I want to go any place I can count on my Jetta getting me there with no problems at all.

- John L

Engine has more power than expected

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Love everything about the car. Very comfortable and stylish. Engine is fantastic and putting it in sport mode is better. The Bluetooth and electronic controls are very easy to use. Reliability is outstanding so far. The only small complaint I have is my husband says the starter is in an awkward spot and his hand has a hard time fitting to start. All around great car.

- Amy R

My vehicle or highlight an interest detail are the performance and gas mileage.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I love my car. There are no problems that I have with it. It's reliability is great, it fit 4 people comfortably and features are great inside of it. My first Jetta, I would buy another one if I had choice. The performance of it is great and smooth, especially on the highway. The gas mileage takes you along way on miles. You take care of it and it take care of you.

- Louisa F

I love my beautiful Jetta!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I have had my Jetta for four months now and I love it! It's been very reliable. There hasn't been any problems with its performance, so myself and my family feel very safe in it. I also just really love how beautiful the car is! That's just a huge plus. My husband has always had Volkswagens and we will always recommend them to friends and family.

- Melissa G

A little fun, a lot of reliability

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

A comfortable and reliable vehicle. Typically gets around 30 mpg. Cloth interior, automatic windows. Automatic transmission. For whatever reason when my key fob died my car alerted me by setting off the car alarm relentlessly until I took the battery out of the key fob. It was very frustrating and an odd feature but overall I like the vehicle.

- barbara L

The speakers are Bose speakers so it sounds amazing

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Great gas mileage, good looking car, great sound system. Pretty zippy. Nothing to hate about it at all. It is so far very reliable and has gotten me to many places safely. It is a great car for everyday driving. Has a rear view cam. The interior could be a little bit better but it's still nice. Overall I like my car a lot

- Tristan M

Best bang for your buck vehicle.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I really like this car. I got the basic model with no upgrades. It had power mirrors and Bluetooth audio which I really enjoy. It is comfortable. I also got it in manual transmission. I am only 5 feet tall and found that this is one of the few vehicles that is comfortable to drive manual being this short.

- Nicole R

Reliable, above excellent car.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Great gas mileage, no real mechanical problems thus far. Has been a very reliable vehicle, and the seating is very comfortable especially on longer drives. The base model has tons of cool features including Bluetooth audio and a backup camera. Would recommend this vehicle as a very dependable car.

VW Jetta Makes Everything Betta

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

My 2017 Volkswagen is exactly what I need in a car. Great features, gas mileage and looks sleek on the road. I feel very safe in the structure as well. One thing I particularly love is the accelerator and brake times. There is ample trunk/storage space and it's a great car to take on road trips!

- Mira K

I love the apple play option.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

It is a solid car that performs well in all weather and at all speeds. The sound system is high quality. The seats are comfortable and the car is low maintenance. The sunroof is nice on sunny days and the heated seats are nice when it is cold. This is my second Jetta and I will buy a third.

- BethAnn S

2017 VW Jetta lease review

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I have had no problems with my VW Jetta. It has had no problems. It is comfortable. I enjoy the features, specifically the hand-free option for my phone and the ability to stream music from my phone. It has been entirely reliable. I would encourage people to purchase a VW Jetta.

- Lori N

Stylish and roomy I retire great gas mileage.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

The Volkswagen Jetta is an amazing sedan fantastic on gas great pep in the engine it has a very casual design. This car is very roomy for its size and has a lot of features for the price that it is offered at. Perfect as a commuter but it also has the room to fit kids in the back.

- Ryan F

The Volkswagen Jetta is the perfect first car for any new, young driver!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I haven't had any problems with my Jetta. They very reliable cars. The gas mileage is great. Only 1/8 of a tank is used for 120 miles. The exterior of the car is shiny and has kept the new car look so far. The inside has fabric seats that do stain easily but can be easily washed.

- Davina L

VW Jetta - a great car to drive

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Black Volkswagen Jetta review 2019.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

I enjoy driving my Jetta. It has a lot of path and the seats are very comfortable. I have had issues with the coolant in the oil cooler though. Other than the one issue with the coolant in the oil cooler everything else is been fine and I would recommend driving the Jetta.

- Zach S

Best gas mileage for a little car.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

This car is the perfect size car for a 5 person family or less. It drives so smoothly and hasn't had any problems yet. It has an okay stereo system but not the best. It was a great price for the car as well. It gets amazing gas mileage and just is overall a really good car.

- Nicky R

Great size and fit, has nice panels.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Great car, no problems really. Tires a tad weak, have had a lot of flat tires. Believe it is the make. But lots of room in the car, and very nice. Stereo system good. Nice shape, very comfortable. Like the features like back camera, maps and other nice accents to the car.

Grey VW Jetta: Named Astrea after the goddess

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Thus far, though it is relatively new, I have not experienced any problems with my vehicle. I find it to be very reliable and fun to drive, and I am very happy with it. I do wish the seats were leather and heated, and I have had some trouble making my CarPlay work.

- Rebecca B

Volkswagen Lover for life!

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

This is my 5th Volkswagen I've leased and I am never disappointed. This car has everything I need and is continuously reliable. Of all the vehicles I've had I continue to go with either the Jetta or passat and could not imagine going with any other type of vehicle.

- Logan N

Reliable drives smooth, easy to work on

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

awesome car, very reliable. It does a lot of things well: It gets good fuel economy, provides a smooth ride, comes with a user-friendly infotainment system, and has good trunk space for a small sedan. It also has great safety scores. Would recommend it to a friend

- Mike E

My favorite detail is the stereo system. The bass is powerful and loud.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

The cars interior is very comfortable and looks great. The car is extremely reliable and has wonderful gas mileage. The bass one the inside is great, you can hear it on the outside of the vehicle. Ever since I bought this car I haven't had a single issue with it.

- Skyler H

Emergency kit provided has everything you'll ever need. Roadside service.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

It gets great gas mileage, seats are not comfortable for long trips. Lighter interior is not the best option with children under 10. Trunk space is amazing. Roomy back seat. No flip down cup holder in back seat. Servicing is very pricey. Oil change is about $100.

- Robin K

The car drives very smooth.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Very loud at the start of driving, stops every once in a while. It's very comfortable to ride in due to the simple fact it's a four door. Fresh blue paint and lights work very well. Brakes are somewhat rough when pressed. Car jerks when you step on the breaks.

- Krystal J

Review of VW Jetta s, the negatives and positives.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Small, but reliable, beyond excellent gas mileage. Seating is uncomfortable. Expensive for regular maintenance. Expensive for other repairs if necessary. Hard to get in and out of if you are tall or bigger in size. Has a tendency to get a lot of flat tires.

- Danielle E

Great car. No issues so far

2017 Volkswagen Jetta 1.4T S

Absolutely love this car. Only wish that it were a little more spacious. Great gas mileage. Tires last right at two years with everyday use. Bluetooth connectivity has not been a problem. Roomy trunk space. Would highly recommend as a dependable vehicle.
