After owning a few jettas over the years, I'll never touch another one. Built like shit. They drive nice, a lot like other German high end cars. They fall apart though. I'm talking things like paint coming off the radio buttons, window controls, headliner coming unglued and falling down, emissions equipment malfunctioning, CV joints going bad, automatic transmission slipping, lights burning out, etc. The list goes on, and that doesn't include the general maintenance. The freaking oil filter is a cartridge that's only available at the dealer for $16 and if you don't have their special tool, is a pita.
There's a lot of crap I dealt with on them. My wife liked the cars a lot and they did drive pretty good. I preferred the old 2.0T to the new I5 though. That motor just isn't very spunky or fun. But all said and done, I won't get another one or recommend them. Not a fan any longer.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
