This is my first Volkswagen
Although I am the third owner and have enjoyed driving 74,000 miles in a car I plan to be the last owner. Very reliable, handles well, nice sound system, comfortable seats. It is a 5 speed wagon, a diesel, and I really enjoy the 50 mpg it gets. This Jetta is the GLS with all the whistles and bells so having my first car with heated seats while living in Alaska is a real treat. Heated mirrors, a very thorough owners manual, sunroof never leaks. That is crucial where I live with a yearly average of 150" of rain.
My grumble is the car is so low I scrape the front bumper cover and have had it tear off a couple of times. The other minor beef is the engine is so low the oil pan is very vulnerable. Just a heads up warning, I live in Alaska and have cracked one. These slights would not stop me from buying another Jetta. At 112,000 miles it is still running on the original clutch, on its second set of tires, changed one set of glow plugs. This Jetta diesel will keep going after I cannot drive anymore.
