"Finally VW manages to make a competitive car"3.0 starson by slasak1
Pros: Good handling
Cons: Reliability issues that have made VW infamous
2011 Jetta just got recalled for engine stalling after you hit the horn.
Summary: Previously Volkswagen stupidly priced its older model Jetta right out of the competition. Who's going to pay $30k for a 200hp Jetta when for the same money you can buy an AWD 263hp Subaru WRX or loaded Honda Accord with 275hp. Nobody. That's why VW introduced the 2011 Jetta. Finally VW figured out that nobody wants to pay a premium price for one of the most unreliable vehicles on the road. Instead, they offer a low priced unreliable car. That makes more sense. Power is better than competitors like Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic unless you are unfortunate enough to own the diesel which is a dog. The interior is very nice as well although I'll take the cloth since the only other upholstery option is vinyl seating. Overall its a step in the right direction for VW. Maybe now they will actually have a top selling automobile not a niche car that caters to hippies.
