Pretty good car, don't buy if you can't afford expensive breakdowns and repairs.
I love my Jetta. It drives smooth, is fast, has great handling, is easy to work on. My only issue and why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is the expense of maintenance. The dealerships will purposely oversharge you for anything they can find. So if you can afford it, then Jettas are great vehicles. Honestly, you can do most of the maintenance yourself, but some of it has to be done at the dealership and that's how they getcha.
