“Bought a new Jetta last month and we couldn’t be happier. It’s the perfect car for a family with young drivers – has a youthful feel, but doesn’t look or feel gimmicky for the parents to drive. We looked at the Hyundai, Honda and Suburu, but this car is very safe, solid and fun to drive. The styling is classic which appeals to everyone in the family. It handles very well. The acceleration requires getting used to as the engine shifts to higher gears too soon (engine lugging), but the tiptronic gives you an option if you really want more pep.”

“This car is a dream to drive, I know the base model Jettas are not well liked but the 2012 GLI is in a class by itself. I get alot of compliments on the car whenever I am filling up on gas. Most people mistake the car for a high end bmw. The car is quiet and on the highway I am averaging about 35mpg, city approx 23-25. Could not be happier, also I just found out now this car is in high demand and they are sold before they hit the lot.”

“I bought my manual Sportawagen TDI in June. I’ve been VW guy for 10 years now and own Jetta Wagon for 10 years before and drove it for almost 200K without any major problems. New TDI gave me some trouble at the beginning. I stole car few times. But I think it is more my fault than car ( I use to drive gasoline car for too long). This one is different because of “drive by wire” and diesel at the same time. When engine is working at idle for some time and then you try to “step on gas” – it does not pick up right away and rather stall. Once I made adjustments to my driving habits – it is working fine. My fuel consumption is around 40 MPG or greater which is a wonderful with today?s prices. Another plus is power at lower rpm and great acceleration. You can feel when turbine is picking up… I hope that this car will serve me for another 10 years and 200K. I would recommend this car to everyone who is enjoying manual.”

The next coming Jetta Model to be released will be the 2013 Jetta Hybrid. Here is a bit of information on that upcoming model.
2013 VW Jetta Hybrid
The all-new Jetta Hybrid is powered by a high-tech turbocharged gasoline engine that is paired with a zero-emissions electric motor. While this marriage of smart and sensible enables impressive driving performance with a class-leading 0-60 mph time of less than 9.0 seconds, this new Jetta is also the world’s first hybrid to use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. What does that mean to you? It means the Jetta can deliver an estimated combined fuel economy figure of 45 mpg with no sacrifice in power. The fuel efficiency is a full 20 percent higher, and in city traffic, it climbs to a little over 30 percent.The Jetta Hybrid can also be driven in pure electric mode at speeds of up to 44 mph and for up to 1.2 miles, depending on operating conditions. And for the first time in the U.S. market, we’re using our acclaimed 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline power plant, which weighs in at a mere 216 pounds. The slimmed-down four-cylinder engine produces 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque from just 1400 rpm. Now you can have a lead foot and still be environmentally friendly.
What’s Cool The Jetta has always had a certain cool factor, but the Jetta Hybrid turns it up a few notches. It features a new take on regenerative braking: its clutch decouples the gasoline engine from the drivetrain when in pure electric drive or coasting modes to release more kinetic energy back into the battery. Because “decouples” is such a cool word, we’ll use it to describe another feature: when you step off the accelerator pedal at speeds of up to 84 mph, the TSI® engine shuts down and decouples from the drivetrain to eliminate driveline drag and the effects of the engine’s torque, resulting in even greater fuel efficiency. Want info on how fuel-efficient the Jetta Hybrid is? Get it with one glance at its all-new ePower meter. It also boasts a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery, and its Autobahn-proven technology makes it the fastest compact hybrid in its class. Now that’s cool.

Why It Matters

Think Blue is Volkswagen’s commitment to achieving sustainable mobility through technology and cars that don’t compromise performance. With its impressive fuel efficiency, turbocharged speed, innovative technology and standard safety equipment like Electronic Stability Control, anti-lock brakes and six airbags, the Jetta Hybrid embodies the Think Blue spirit of mobility that’s not only environmentally friendly, but fun.
