I used to be driving an old sports car for around 7 years I was looking at VW for their great MPG and have always liked the brand. I decided to buy a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta, and immediately loved how it drove. After the test drive I signed the papers and was off in my new car. I drove the Jetta on long trips and notice it getting great mpg and being really comfortable on long trips across the country, I spent a lot of time in my car so it was important to have good mpg and be comfortable. I noted getting around 40mpg on long drives with around 30 or so in the city, over all it is a great car for the money. I am really happy with my decision to buy this car and really like the upgrade, has lots of gadgets and what not too, makes driving the car quite relaxing even when stuck in bumper to bumper traffic. I barely have to stop for gas now, which saves me a lot of money month to month. The only thing I wish it had more of was power, but even then the car doesn't look half bad, just not very sporty. It's a very practical car that anyone could drive day to day with no issue at all and very reliable, hasn't broke down on me once.

I finally found the perfect car for me. I'm a suburban/city driver and need a car that can take me to work and back, around town doing errands and still handle the occasional weekend getaway to the beach or mountains. The Jetta has the gas mileage to make all these trips with ease. It gets about 23 MPG in the city and averages 33 MPG on the highway- more than enough to keep my wallet from constantly running on empty!
The car's design is also something I'm particularly fond of. It's just a sharp-looking car all around. I have the SE model, which comes with 16 inch wheels for a nice, finished look. The automatic sunroof looks great and is a fun addition that makes the Jetta even more sporty. Inside, it's super comfortable. I would have liked a leather interior option, but the leatherette is probably more practical. With its four doors, I've got plenty of room to drive friends around and the trunk is large enough to carry groceries, luggage or whatever I need to transport. The technology package is a great addition to the car. With the Bluetooth capability, iPod connectivity and Sirius radio, the Jetta keeps me connected with almost no effort on my part.
On top of the looks and features, the Jetta is just a fun car to drive! It rides smooth, and it handles like a dream. The Jetta has the get-up-and-go that I'd expect from a much larger car. The 3 year/30,000 mile warranty was also a big part of my decision to buy the Jetta. Volkswagen takes care of all the oil changes and scheduled maintenance service I need!
